Fiji is one of those places where sipping cocktails and snacking on fresh seafood by the beach is a way of life and the country operates on a relaxed ‘island time’. In between cooling dips in the ocean, treks in search of hidden waterfalls and snorkelling trips to discover the colourful marine life, the days in Fiji are best spent at the bar and here’s our pick of three of the best.
You may have heard rumours about a bar that floats in the middle of the ocean, and we’re to tell you that the rumours are true. Cloud 9 sits atop Fiji’s turquoise waters and can only be reached by boat. For those that embark on the journey to reach this tropical watering hole, wood-fired pizzas, a fully stocked bar, great music, plenty of sunloungers and 360-degree ocean views await.
Nestled between the lush rainforest and the ocean, Banyan Bar offers cocktails in the canopy for guests wanting to unwind in a romantic setting. There’s no dress code and the vibe is ‘island chill’ with a menu of tipples that include tropical cocktails like the Lazy Gecko with crème de cacao, hazelnut & strawberry liqueur, coconut cream, strawberries and chocolate.
The newest addition to the Fiji bar scene, Malamala Beach Club is a newly opened glamorous hotspot where you’ll find sunsets and seafood. This is the world’s first beach club located on its very own island, so expect dreamy views, like-minded sunseekers, stylish beachside cabanas and poolside snacks like tuna poke bowls, beef sliders and Malamala island fries with coconut sugar and smoked pineapple ketchup.
