Getting about on Denarau Island

Hi there, we are heading to Denarau for 7 days shortly staying at Rad Blu and wondering what is the best way to get around on the the Island (mainly between the marina precinct and the Resort ?) ? Hire Bikes ? Taxi ? is the bus service regular ? can you hire golf carts ?

Thanks in advance

Try the Bula Bus as it travels around all major resorts

www.denarau.com/transport-services/

Tickets for all day unlimited travel are $8.00 per adult and Special 4 day pass unlimited for $24 per adult.

we walked. everything was very close. in fact you walk from resort to resort to resort. we even walked to the wharf from the rad blu with our luggage. only took 15 minutes or less. Denerau isnt really an island. its a reclaimed mango swamp and you cross a bridge.

You purchase the Bula bus tickets at the shops in the resorts. It drops and picks you up from the resort fronts. It does a continuous loop, easy and fun. You can catch a big yellow bus-west bus it costs $1 and you pay when you get off. That bus takes you into Nadi. You also have to catch it from the bus stops not the front of the resorts. We also caught a taxi from the airport and cost fjd$35 and to catch the taxi from resort to airport was fjd$45 there were 4 of us.

Hi Adrian,

My suggestion is to walk as much as possible. As others have stated, you can walk from one end of the resort to the other in 15 minutes. The Bula bus was good value when it was free, but certainly isn't worth $8 a day. If you caught the dollar bus at the front gate and got off at the Wyndham the cost is just 75 cents and the fare to Nadi is of course a dollar.

The taxi fare from the airport to Denarau is $25 and I would suggest that you wait till the driver gets to the first roundabout after leaving the airport and ask him to turn his meter on. Fair chance the cost then will be about $22.

The $45 from Denarau to the airport is nothing but a ripoff.
