Let’s Go Local: Try Out Shangri-La’s Fijian Coral Coast Experience
Solomon Islands students who visited the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park on October 10, to commemorate Fiji Day and explore the dunes.

Have you ever tried out the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort’s Getaway offer that includes Sigatoka Dunes and River Jet Fiji?

If your answer is no- then you should.

Shangri-La’s, director of sales, Marsha Eyre, said the resort wanted to ensure that they were supporting their local activity partners in driving business, not only to the resort, but to Sigatoka as well.

“We have created this package which is the Coral Coast experience along with Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort & Spa. “The Sigatoka River Safari is a once in a lifetime experience and a chance for everyone to try while the prices are very competitive.

The jet boat rides take up the Sigatoka River past the famous

Sigatoka Valley doing thrilling spins on the river.

“Although Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park is famous, not many Fijians have had the chance to actually visit the sand dunes.

“The National Park is of great importance for educational and recreational use and is a milestone in Fiji’s drive for environment conservation.”

Ma Eyre highlighted the National Park is an: archeological site for the Lapita pottery, with it’s diverse dry forests with up to 22 bird species and several trails where rangers can accompany you on a guided tour, this is a great activity for everyone including families.
