Things to Do in Nadi for Couples
Fiji is an iconic couples’ getaway. The glistening clear waters, soft sandy islands and comfortably warm weather instantly puts couples in that romantic holiday mood. For couples that have limited time in Fiji, staying in Nadi, as it’s close to the main international airport in Fiji, is an excellent option. Romantic activities are all in close proximity, removing any organisational stress. Take a look at this list of romantic activities for couples and start adding these activities to your bucket list.

1. Take a Helicopter to the Malamala Beach Club
Treat yourselves to an exclusive helicopter flight over the scenic Fiji islands and land on the small sandy island dotted with swaying palms at the Malamala Beach Club. Spend the day on the island snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming and sitting back with butler service in your own private cabana. Check out this experience with Pacific Island Air.

2. Enjoy Fine Dining in a Private Cabana
While fine dining outside of Denarau is pretty hard to find in Nadi, a great option is at the Fish Bar at the Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay. Book your own private cabana along with a five-course fine dining dinner topped off with champagne.
3. Do a Private Sailing Excursion to the Islands
Sail the turquoise waters of Fiji to a small and secluded island off the coast of Nadi. There are many day trip island excursions to choose from in the Denarau area, just a short drive from Nadi, but we like this romantic private sailing trip on Pelorus Jack with PJ’s Sailing Adventures to Serenity Island. Snorkelling gear, lunch, weaving demonstrations and a coconut tasting are all included.

4. Unwind in the Sabeto Hot Springs
It doesn’t get more cosy and romantic than snuggling in a hot spring. The Sabeto Hot Springs just outside of Nadi provide the perfect balance of fun and relaxation as you lather each other in wet mud, let it dry on the skin, then immerse in several hot pools fed by natural spring water to wash it and all your cares away. The best way to get to the spring is to jump on a personalised day tour from Nadi, such as the one with Epic Transfer and Tours Fiji. Your driver will take you where you want at your own pace – real luxury!

5. Do a Sunset Cruise
Another wonderful tour from the Denarau Marina, Captain Cook Cruises offer a glorious sunset cruise aboard the SV Fiji One. Sit back and relax with a barbecue dinner or char-grilled lobster, complimentary cocktail and a captivating onboard cultural show.

6. Get Married or Renew Your Vows in a Stunning Resort
For that special occasion pick a special location. Swap the hustle and bustle of the Denarau resorts for the peaceful Nadi alternative, like First Landing Beach Resort at Vuda Point with their generous offering of wedding and vow renewal packages. There’s also the Oasis Palms Hotel with a similar service on the shores of Nadi Bay. Or choose five-star luxury at the Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay with three breathtaking indoor and outdoor venues to choose from.
7. Drink Cocktails While Watching the Sunset
With vibrant colours and spectacular Fiji coastal settings, sunset is the most romantic time of day to spend together. In Fiji, this usually means unwinding with a couple of tropical cocktails while chatting about the days’ events. It can often be the most memorable part of any Fiji getaway. Head to the bars of Wailoaloa Beach for a beachfront setting or sit under the palm trees on the beach at the Tavua Bar & Grill at the Fiji DoubleTree Resort by Hilton – Sonaisali Island.
8. Stay in a Luxury Resort
When it’s your special time away together, why not make it truly special?!

9. Organise a Romantic Proposal
Serene sandy beaches, glistening waters and soothing tropical sun: the islands of Fiji make a romantic setting to pop the question. For an extra special way to propose in Nadi, take a helicopter trip with Heli-Tours Fiji or Pacific Island Air to a secluded island. The experienced team can help you create a memorable and personalised proposal. Have your pilot fly over your personalised message in the sand before touching down on the island for you to ask the big question. Toast to spending the rest of your lives together as you relax with champagne on the beach before flying back to Nadi.
10. Learn to Scuba Dive Together
For the adventurous couple, learning to scuba dive is a great way to strengthen your bond. There are plenty of dive operators in the resorts of Nadi, as well as dive centres in Nadi which are PADI-affiliated and can teach you all the basics of scuba diving. For budgeting couple, the Smugglers Cove Beach Resort offers free introductory dive lessons in their pool for guests, getting you ready to hit the ocean, while the Scuba Bula Dive Centre can take you out on trips to amazing soft coral reefs.
11. Bonus: Treat Yourself to a Couples’ Massage
From Bobo Massage to traditional Barefoot Massage, Fijians know a thing or two about relaxing mind and body. Massage is in fact so entrenched in the local culture that multiple companies are using traditional recipes to create natural modern massage oil and products that can be found in spas all around the world. Only a short drive out of Nadi you will find the Fiji Orchid with its own spa but if you really want to start your trip the relaxed way, get yourself the Airport Transfer & Spa Treatment package at the Essence of Fiji Rejuvenation Centre.
