suva, fijiSuva is the capital city of Fiji. It is located on the southeast coast of the island of Viti Levu, in the Central Division, of which it is the administrative center. In 1877, it was decided to make Suva the capital of Fiji when the geography of former main European settlement at Levuka on the island of Ovalau proved too restrictive. The administration of the colony was moved from Levuka to Suva in 1882. At the 1996 census, the last to date, the city of Suva had a population of 77,366

Fiji's warm hospitality is its foremost natural attraction. The Fijian culture is lively and colorful, and the source of the islands' friendly and inviting atmosphere. Fiji's easy-going style is accented with Polynesian and Asian influences displayed in native and imported crafts sold at open-air bazaars, in lively festivals and celebrations, and in exotic ethnic cuisines.

More than 300 islands are host to endless days of snorkeling in crystal seas, surfing on some of the world's most formidable waves, sunning on secluded beaches, trekking through lush rainforests, and quite a lot more. Viti Levu, literally 'Great Fiji,' is the largest island where you'll find a good sampling of all that Fiji has to offer: Elegant resorts, traditional villages, the busy capital city of Suva, scenic drives through rural countryside, and ferries to neighboring islands.

Happily, traditional Fijian art, architecture, music and dance are much a part of daily life, even in modern times. Intricate wood-carving, masi bark cloth design, and the building of handsome pitched-roofed houses called bures are treasured skills. Welcoming guests with a kava drinking ceremony is an honored ritual. And the practice of fire walking is performed regularly for astounded visitors.
