How to Rent a Bicycle in Fiji
We’ll cut right to the chase. Cycling in Fiji isn’t the most accessible activity to do on the islands. With most road networks limited to only a few of Fiji’s 333 islands, cycling isn’t a common method of getting around in Fiji. Nevertheless, for those who are determined to get some active time in their Fiji holiday, there are still some great cycling experiences to be had. Your options will just be limited to the areas of Nadi, Denarau, a couple of islands in the Mamanuca Islands and Savusavu in Vanua Levu. Check out where to rent a bike in Fiji in this guide.
5 Ways to Get a Bike in Fiji
- Rent a bike from one of the islands’ bike rental services
- Join a guided bike tour, offered by selected resorts
- Make use of some resorts’ complimentary bike rentals
- Join an all-inclusive Fiji cycling holiday with bike rentals, accommodation, food and activities included
- Bring your bike – find out how in our The Ultimate Guide to Mountain Biking in Fiji.
Where to Rent a Bike in Viti Levu
With the largest network of roads, Viti Levu is the go-to island for a self-guided bike adventure. However, your adventure will have to start in Nadi where the only bicycle rental company on the mainland is based. Bike rentals are also available in Denarau, but you are restricted to only cycling in Denarau.
Nadi Bicycle Rentals
Stinger Bicycles has a great range of bikes to rent, from Avanti bikes to Gary Fisher. They come in numerous sizes for you to get the perfect fit. The rental also includes a helmet, bike lock, puncture repair kit and a water bottle. Shuttle transport can be added at cost. Bikes cost FJ$60-$80 per day.

Denarau Island Bicycle Rentals
Situated outside of the Wyndham Resort complex, a watersports hire stall rents out bikes for around FJ$25 per hour. There’s limited choice in bikes, but they are a fun way of getting around the island. Note that you are not allowed to take the bikes off the island (to venture into Nadi, for instance).
Viti Levu Motorcycle Rentals
If two wheels and a motor was more what you were looking for, then, again, you have one option for motorcycle rentals in Viti Levu.
Go Dirty Tours offers motorcycle rentals that can be dropped off in the following cities and resorts:
- Nadi (Lot 31 Waqavuka Road, Namaka Industrial, Nadi)
- Denarau Island (Wyndham Vacation Resort by Worldmark)
- Wailoaloa Beach (Horizon Beach Resort)
- Coral Coast (Hideaway Resort).
Where to Rent a Bike on the Mamanuca Islands
Nadi and Denarau’s closest island group, the Mamanucas, have a couple of islands with their very own bike rental to get over the sand and ride between resorts.
Bicycle Rentals on Malolo Lailai Island
Thanks to Bula Bikes, getting around the island of Malolo Lailai is easy. Use the pathways, dirt roads and even the beaches to get from restaurant to restaurant, beach to beach, shop to shop and other points of interest. All of the bikes to hire are beach cruisers, with options for adults and children.
Bicycle Rentals on Mana Island
Bula Bikes also operates on Mana Island in the Mamanucas.

Where to Rent a Bike on Vanua Levu
With quieter roads and some more favourable cycling routes, from rainforest bike rides to coastal trails, Vanua Levu is well worth considering for some cycling in Fiji. Fiji’s second-largest island is less-frequented than Viti Levu, but still has a great selection of resorts and activities. Find out more in our list of 12 Amazing Things to Do on Vanua Levu.
Bicycle Rentals in Savusavu
Bike hire is available at selected resorts near Savusavu, Vanua Levu’s main hub and location of the Savusavu Airport. Koro Sun Resort has complimentary bike hire, as well as guided bike tours through the rainforest. Alternatively, Naveria Heights Lodge offers four different bike tours, each longer and more adventurous.
