If you’re looking for paradise and want to experience Fiji’s newest and exciting day trip – look no further than Seventh Heaven Fiji! A day at Seventh Heaven is an absolute must do when in Fiji!
What is Seventh Heaven?
In the middle of the South Pacific Ocean lies Seventh Heaven – an outdoor leisure platform with a bar and restaurant, plenty of sun loungers, as well as water activities, a massage area and a jumping platform!
If you are looking for the ultimate Fiji ‘Sip And Dip’ experience surrounded by crystal clear waters you will find it here at Seventh Heaven.
Where Is Seventh Heaven Located?
Seventh Heaven is located in Fiji’s stunning Mamanuca Islands, to the west of Fiji’s main island Viti Levu.
It lies just south of Malolo Island and is situated in a great spot in Fiji! Despite being in the middle of the ocean it is actually super convenient to get to!
Why Should You Visit Seventh Heaven?
The setting for Seventh Heaven is honestly so perfect. The layout, the complimentary activities, and not to mention the amazing staff that really make this place what it is.
Fijian hospitality is great but the hospitality here was honestly the best I have ever seen. Right from the beginning, before we had even got off the boat we could feel the lovely energy of the crew here – they were singing and clapping as we were arriving, and again as we were leaving.
The staff remember your name and are so attentive and friendly. In particular Milli and Katrina were just so fun to be around – I genuinely didn’t want to leave them by the end!
How To Get To Seventh Heaven
It takes just a 50 minute boat from Denarau Marina to reach Seventh Heaven!
You’ll find many of the big hotel resort chains on Denarau Island, so if you are staying in one of those hotels, Denarau Marina is very easy to get to in just a matter of minutes. Additionally if you are staying in the lively and more affordable Wailoaloa Beach area or even in Nadi town, Denarau Marina is only about a 10-15 minute drive.
When making your Seventh Heaven booking, you can choose to also book return coach transfers from your hotel in Denarau Island, Nadi, Wailoaloa and even Coral Coast for an additional cost – otherwise you can just get a taxi.
The boat to Seventh Heaven (known as the Nuku Flyer) leaves from Port Denarau Kiosk 5 at 9am sharp so arrive with plenty of time! Boat transfers don’t run on Fiji Time!
It’s also wise to head to the bathroom before you get on the boat as there are no toilets onboard. There are of course lots of toilets at Denarau Marina and Seventh Heaven.
The boat ride out is very smooth and you’ll go past several beautiful islands along the way!
You can of course turn up to Seventh Heaven on your own boat if you prefer. It’s free to turn up if you don’t use the transfer – you just pay for your food and drinks at Seventh Heaven! If heading there on your own boat, it’s wise to just phone up before you head to Seventh Heaven to check it’s okay for you to visit and not closed for a private event for example!
What To Do At Seventh Heaven
There is actually a lot to do here at Seventh Heaven – I was so pleasantly surprised!
Besides eating, drinking and relaxing in the sun there are lots of water based activities you can do such as snorkelling, kayaking and jumping off the platform.
But what’s also great about Seventh Heaven is that even if you don’t want to get in the water, you can still see so many fish from the platform!
I was honestly amazed at the thousands of fish that were just swimming around the platform all day – I’ve never seen anything like it! The staff said the fish are always there every day which is just incredible!
The snorkelling equipment and kayaks are free to use at Seventh Heaven, so it’s definitely worth using them!
The coral reef nearby is beautiful and there is a lot of marine life to see under water if you go snorkelling! We saw plenty of fish and huge blue starfish, plus the water is always warm – it was really amazing. If you don’t like snorkelling, the water is so crystal clear that you can even see the reef, starfish and fish whilst you are in your kayak!
The jumping platform at Seventh Heaven – the “Leap Of Faith” is always popular! There is space to do a big run up to it and many people had fun jumping off it. It can be quite daunting as it is higher than it seems, but hopefully you’ll have the guts to do it! Milli dived from it several times – check out these shots of her flying down!
There are two levels at Seventh Heaven so there is plenty of space to spread out and relax. There are shaded areas if you need a break from the sun and plenty of sun loungers in the sun to top up that tan.
There are also two massage rooms so you can book a massage for an additional price – what a way to relax in paradise! We didn’t have a massage but it was very popular throughout the day!
How Long Do You Spend At Seventh Heaven?
The boat departs Port Denarau at around 9am and arrives at Seventh Heaven just before 10am.
You will spend around 5 hours at Seventh Heaven which to me was the perfect amount of time to enjoy relaxing, snorkelling, kayaking and eating!
Of course if you come on your own boat and not on the Seventh Heaven boat you can just pop in for a quick drink if you wish, or longer if you prefer – it’s totally up to you! At one point when we were there, there were so many small boats just popping in for a bit and the place got really busy!
Can You Stay Overnight At Seventh Heaven?
Seventh Heaven is basically a floating bar and restaurant – there is no option to stay overnight as there are no accommodation options! Boo-hoo. It would be amazing to wake up in this paradise!
What Should I Bring To Seventh Heaven?
Make sure you bring:
Swimsuit, towel, hat, sunglasses, camera!
Reef Safe sunscreen:
Sadly the chemicals in many sunscreens are contributing to the death of lots of species that live amongst the reef. Therefore if you are going snorkeling it is important to use a reef safe sunscreen made of zinc such as Sunbutter Suncream that is reef safe, palm oil free and Vegan friendly!
Zinc sunscreen sits on the top layer of your skin, as opposed to getting absorbed, so it can make your skin a bit paler than it really is. Luckily the suncream brand WinkiZinc has several different shades of reef safe suncream to suit your skin tone!
Cash is generally not accepted on Seventh Heaven – only Visa and Mastercard can be used so make sure to bring your card! It’s always wise to bring a couple of cards just incase you have problems with one and it gets declined for some reason (always happens to me!).
You don’t need to bring any of your own food to Seventh Heaven – it’s not permitted, plus the food is delicious here!
When Is Seventh Heaven Open?
The good news is that you can visit Seventh Heaven any day of the week (unless they are closed for a private function).
Seventh Heaven is open from 10am to 3pm – that’s 5 whole hours of happiness!
What Food Is Available At Seventh Heaven Fiji?
The food and cocktails are really great at Seventh Heaven. They have a wide range of cocktails and local and international beers, as well as wine, spirits and soft drinks.
They also have a wide selection of food available – their speciality being the authentic wood-fired pizzas. We actually had the ‘Fijian’ pizza – which is basically like a Hawaiian pizza (makes sense right?!), but you can opt for chicken instead of the ham if you wish – so we did to have a change, and it was really delicious!
If you fancy something smaller, they have options such as salads and fries.
Prices were similar to what you would expect in the high-end resorts – pizzas were in the $30FJD price range, a Fiji Gold was $12, Coca Cola was $7 just to give you an example.
What Amenities Are Available At Seventh Heaven?
As mentioned before, Seventh Heaven has a bar, restaurant, a massage area and toilets. There is also a lovely little gift shop here if you want to buy souvenirs of Seventh Heaven, as well as a small smoking area is available.
The whole platform is entirely solar powered and there’s even a shower so you can rinse the salt water off which was really convenient.
Plus, snorkel geared kayaks are provided free of charge at Seventh Heaven.
Overall the amenities here are excellent and there was everything we needed here.
How Much Does Seventh Heaven Cost?
Seventh Heaven costs $189 FJD for adults – this includes your boat transfers to and from Seventh Heaven. All food and drinks are additional.
The boat departs at 9am and arrives back at 4pm which means you get 5 hours onboard Seventh Heaven!
Can Children Visit Seventh Heaven Fiji?
Children aged 10 years and older are welcome at Seventh Heaven! It costs $139 FJD for children aged 10-16.
Due to safety reasons, Seventh Heaven is unable to accommodate guests under the age of 10.
Who Is Seventh Heaven Suitable For?
Seventh Heaven is suitable for any fun-loving person who wants to explore a piece of paradise in Fiji!
Whether you’re a water baby and want to spend the day diving off the platform and swimming amongst the fish and coral, or you just want to lay on a sunlounger all day and get food and drinks delivered to you whilst you tan, listen to the music and soak up the good vibes – you’re bound to have a great time at Seventh Heaven!
Is Seventh Heaven Worth It?
Seventh Heaven is absolutely a must-do when in Fiji – it really is a paradise!
It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Fiji, we had such a great time here and the energy was just fantastic. There were lots of people in our group who were literally begging to delay the boat back to the mainland at the end as they just didn’t want to leave – and the staff said that happens most days, which just goes to show how much people enjoy Seventh Heaven!
The staff are incredible, so welcoming and go above and beyond to make sure everyone has a great time.
So many places over deliver on what they promise, but Seventh Heaven was everything it says it is, plus more!
I honestly had such a great time at Seventh Heaven and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
