Nadi is the first place that most travelers visiting Fiji see on arriving at the international airport and, on first impressions, it can be a little disappointing for those dreaming of a South Pacific paradise of white sands and palm trees wafting gently in the breeze! Scratch beneath the surface of this practical, no-nonsense town, though, and you will find a plethora of services useful to the independent traveler, and a wide range of attractions often overlooked by those rushing off to the Yasawas Islands. Whilst the main street is a bit scruffy, it has the widest range of food shops, souvenir stores, and places to pick up the bits and pieces you've forgotten (insect repellent, towel, suncream) that you are likely to find, and prices are more reasonable than in many of the smaller resorts.
There are a wide range of hostels in Nadi, ranging from those convenient for the airport to those with a more laid-back beach vibe. The hostels in Nadi are spread out across the town, and although there is a good and easy to use local bus network it is worth a little research to make sure you get what you are looking for and situate yourself in the appropriate area.
In and around the town itself, there are a number of sights worth seeing including the very colourful Hindu temple and, further outside the town, the Sabeto Hot Springs and mud pools and the spectacular Garden of the Sleeping Giant -- both of which lie in the heart of the rural Fijian countryside and are well worth a visit. Activities across the whole of the central island and on the outlying chains can be easily arranged either via the hostels or using one of the many travel shops in Nadi. Whilst it may lack the charm of some of the smaller places, you can't really say you've been to Fiji until you've been to Nadi!

Do not buy tickets to the islands from the main street tourist agency. They will rip you off when you go to get on the boat you wont be getting on because they will keep the money and the police are involved in the racket and the old ladies walking up and down the street with tourist help badge around their neck. Better ask at your hostel, much easier!
Don't plan to stay long in Nadi -- there's nothing to do. Stay one night and immediately move to one of the islands.
