This is the tourism heart of Viti Levu, with clusters of resorts scattered between the towns of Sigatoka, Korotogo, Korolevu, and Pacific Harbour. The huge Outrigger on the Lagoon resort is across the highway from the Kula Eco Park and is a focal point of the area, entertaining guests from the nearby "Sunset Strip" resorts as well. But beware: it's called the Coral Coast for a reason–-most of the beaches here are highly subject to tides and have sharp coral rocks close to shore, which means they often have great snorkeling spots but limited sandy beach. The emphasis at these resorts tends to be on pools and sports facilities, but they all have active tour desks that can arrange a variety of adventure and cultural activities. Most resorts are next to the villages (where their employees live), and offer tours introducing guests to the warm communal center of Fijian life.
