Fiji is a very safe place for travellers and common sense is all you really need to ensure a safe and happy holiday. That said, Fiji isn’t immune to crime and occasionally tourists are targeted. It is worth keeping the following in mind.
- When you’re in Nadi or Suva do not walk around at night, even in a group. Locals catch cabs after dark and you should do the same.
- Male travellers in particular are often approached and asked if they want marijuana and/or prostitutes – it's illegal to buy either (both sex work and buying sex are criminalised in Fiji).
- If your stay is long-term, be aware that burglaries are not uncommon. Always make sure you have good locks on all doors and windows of rental properties.
