Fiji's central location in the South Pacific makes it one of the main airline hubs in the region, and as a result it often features as an extended stopover on travellers’ itineraries as they travel between Australia or New Zealand and the northern hemisphere.

Cities and larger towns have paved roads suitable for everyday cars, while island interiors are often criss-crossed by rough trails. There are no passenger trains in Fiji.
Car There are rental car agencies in heavily populated or touristed areas. A 4WD is a good idea if you're exploring out of town. Local carriers can also be chartered.
Taxis Cabs, commonplace in cities and towns, can be an inexpensive option for daytrips, as well as shorter commutes.
Bus Fiji's larger islands are well-served by long-distance buses. Cheap, often windowless local buses offer a friendly, truly Fijian experience (as in: timetables are erratic, but you'll have a good time riding them!).
Boat Ferries and cargo ships travel between Viti Levu and other islands. Be sure to check how often they return, especially to more remote destinations; some only run once a week. There are regular ferries between Nadi and the Mamanuca and Yasawa island groups.
Plane Fiji Airways (operating domestically as Fiji Link) and Northern Air fly from Viti Levu to many of the outer islands. Private seaplanes and helicopters are an option for island resorts.
