Suva sits on a hilly peninsula in the southeast corner of Viti Levu Island, the largest in the Fijian archipelago. The town is backed by the lush, dark green hills of the Suva-Rewa Range; much of the waterfront is built on land reclaimed from tangled mangrove swamps. Many of the main points of interest are located on Victoria Parade and its extension, tree-shaded Queen Elizabeth Drive. Be sure to visit Thurston Gardens. Suva’s botanical park is lush with flowering plants, shade trees and green lawns.
