Viseisei Village

Viseisei Village is the oldest settlement in Fiji, located about 12km. north of Nadi. It’s a great little village that will let you experience what a traditional Fiji village is like. Most indigenous Fijians still live in villages similar to this, and make their living off the land and sea.

Historically, the first Melanesians were known to land around here, just 1km North at Vuda Point. Some of the historic bures in this village are still used to this day for important occasions.

Dress appropriately if you come here, as you are required to cover your shoulders and knees, and to remove your hat.
