Party In Paradise At Fiji's Best Bars

Hannah Bergin

The Fijian archipelago is a place of blissful serenity where most visitors naturally choose to spend long days on pearly-white beaches, soaking up the views and pure island air. A famously gregarious and cheerful lot, the Fijians enjoy a vibrant nightlife scene with a variety of venues scattered across the islands. Here’s our guide to some of the best.

Cloud 9

For a completely unique experience, take a boat out to Cloud 9 – a floating, open-aired platform that sits atop the kaleidoscopic Ro Ro Reef. Its chic design incorporates a straw-roof cabana, couches, and cream-hued canopies as well as a fully-stocked bar and wonderful pizzeria, making it a particularly stylish and wonderfully intimate venue. With breathtaking 360-degree views across the horizon, you really will feel as though you are floating on cloud nine.

Beachcomber Island Resort

Beachcomber Island Resort

The beautiful and particularly accommodating Mamanuca Islands have become extremely popular with young backpackers over the years, and Beachcomber Island has established itself as the party hotspot of the Fijian archipelago. The islet comes alive after dark – and the Beachcomber Island Resort is its thriving hub. The resort’s varied and dynamic program can cater for stag parties, hen nights, anniversaries, and birthdays as well as hosting in-house parties, themed nights, and cultural performances.

Ed’s Bar

Ed’s Bar is located close to Fiji’s international airport in the bustling backpacker hub of Nadi and has long been a popular meeting place for both locals and travelers. With a variety of themed nights, a cheerful bar crew, and generous offers (a five-hour Happy Hour every day of the week), Ed’s continues to entice a large and varied crowd. You can enjoy a subdued evening drink and game of pool in its breezy outdoor garden, or rave the night through on its vibrant dance floor.

With its sleek, modern interior and atmospheric mood-lighting, Nadi’s Ice Bar is a stylish and trendy locale that has a spacious outdoor balcony as well as an indoor dance floor, where the energy level only begins to dwindle come day-break.

The bar serves some fantastic drinks and hosts quite a party too. Attracting a particularly fun-loving and light-hearted crowd, O’Reilly’s is the throbbing heart of Suva’s nightlife.

Bar, Nightclub, Pub Grub

Each of Traps’ five bar areas has its own mood and character, allowing this hotspot to cater for a diverse crowd.

As one of the longest-running bars in the town, Traps is a fascinating insight into true Fijian nightlife.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
