Fiji Sandy Point Beach Cottages

Updated: July 16, 2018

Sandy Point Beach Cottages – Modest self-contained cottages, ideal for budget-minded travellers.

Built in 1960, and the antithesis of the omnipotent Outrigger Resort nearby, the handful of basic cottages are well-separated among a manicured lawn of swaying palms. They almost feel like a home (albeit the sort found at a military barracks), with a fully-equipped kitchen, small dining table and space for 1 (or even 2) extra single beds, while the Family Cottage sleeps 5. The beach directly in front is so narrow that it’s almost useless, but only metres away is an undeveloped beach perfect for walks, and the immaculate beach at the neighbouring Outrigger is also public. And the pool is oversized, considering the few guests. It is isolated, however, with no village shops nearby, so come prepared if self-catering.

Sandy Point Beach Cottages – The Basics

  • Location: Along the southern coast, in an area known as the Coral Coast, on the main island of Viti Levu. Next to the massive and well-known Outrigger Resort. About 8km from Sigatoka and 77km from Nadi and the airport.
  • Guests: Caters for those on a budget, especially anyone driving and keen on self-catering.
  • Beach: Almost non-existent in front, but very good at the Outrigger Resort only 100m away.
  • Views: Views of the lawns and sea vary because they’re often blocked by palms, or simply too far away.
  • Wi-Fi Internet: Not provided.
  • Parking: Plenty of secure parking onsite for free.
