Nananu-i-Ra Island off Viti Levu is similar, while Ovalau and the old capital Levuka are steeped in history. Taveuni and Kadavu islands are top scuba diving destinations with surfing and kayaking also popular on Kadavu. The Arts Village at Pacific Harbor provides an introduction to traditional Fijian life, and some of the best food, nightlife, and shopping is in cities like Nadi, Suva, and Lautoka.
