A visit to the Mud Pools Fiji is high up on the “Things to do in Nadi Fiji”. We have visited several mud pools in our travels but an authentic hot spring with real thick therapeutic mud, readily available to plaster on our bodies, is fun in anyone’s books. Located in Paradise under the watchful eye of the Sleeping Giant Fiji that overlooks Nadi, you have to pinch yourself that such a find is so close to an International Airport and can be easily fitted in between transfers if you have 4 hours or more to kill.
Mud Pools Fiji – Details
Located in Sabeto area, simply turn left exiting the airport, head out along the Queens Road toward Lautoka. Keep an eye out for the Bure hut with Aviva Farm sign on the right-hand side of the highway next to a rustic dirt road, turn right at this road. Head out past the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, past Aviva Farms then you won’t be far from the entrance to the first Mud Pool. We always visit the first but there is two side by side. Take your pick!
