The South Pacific island nation of Fiji has long enchanted tourists from around the world. Once a British colony, today Fiji is a multicultural, English-speaking nation. It is famous for world-class scuba diving, stunning white sand beaches and lush tropical landscapes, not to mention the friendly, smiling Fijians themselves.
The oceanfront resort town of Pacific Harbour will once again be our Feast site this year. It is located just over a 2½-hour drive southeast of Nadi International Airport. The drive is about 87 miles (140 kilometers) on a one-way road through a number of villages. Throughout the island, the maxium speed on open roads is 80 kilometers per hour, which is about 50 miles per hour. Pacific Harbour is about a 50-minute drive from Fiji's capital city, Suva. The average daytime temperature in September is about 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius) with occasional rain expected.
Services will be held in the wedding chapel at the Pearl South Pacific Resort in Pacific Harbour. The Pearl is located right on the oceanfront with two restaurants on-site. Those who wish to stay in the Pearl Resort Hotel can book accommodations by telephone at +679 773 0022 or by website at booking.com/The_Pearl_South_Pacific. Please inform the hotel that you are attending the Church of God Pacific Convention.
Proposed activities include an offshore island snorkeling excursion, jet skiing, two group dinners and a movie night. A championship golf course, scuba diving and river kayaking are available nearby.
