Nadi (pronounced -fjˈnandi) is the third-largest conurbation in Fiji. It is located on the western side of the main island of Viti Levu, and had a population of 42,284 at the most recent census, in 2007. Nadi is multiracial with many of its inhabitants Indian or Fijian, along with a large transient population of foreign tourists. Along with sugar cane production, tourism is a mainstay of the local economy. The Nadi region has a higher concentration of hotels and motels than any other part of Fiji.

With its large Indo-Fijian population, Nadi is a centre for Hinduism and Islam in Fiji. The downtown area is defined by the Nadi River and Viseisei village on the west side, and the beautfiul Sri Siva Subramaniya temple on the east. It is the largest Hindu temple in the Southern hemisphere, and is a site for pilgrims.

Nadi International Airport located 9 kilometers from the city, is the largest airport in Fiji and is served by Air Pacific (the international airline of Fiji), Air Calin, Air Niugini, Air New Zealand, Jetstar.Pacific Blue, V Australia, Korean Air, Continental Micronesia, and some other domestic airlines such as Pacific Sun, Air Fiji and V.I.P charter airline Air Wakaya. Thus, Nadi is the principal port of entry for air travelers to Fiji, even though it is on the opposite (western) side of the island of Viti Levu from the nation's capital and largest city, Suva.

Nadi is a hub of commerce and tourism, with about 18 hotels, and is popular among travelers seeking to take ferries to island resorts in Fiji's western Mamanuca Group of islands. The town is also close to the western mud-flat beaches. It is also close to the Nausori highlands to the east, and can access the Sabeto [samˈbeto] and Sigatoka [siŋaˈtoka] valleys. Other sites are the Waqadra [waŋˈɡandra] Botanical Gardens, and the Sleeping Giant Gardens, which house Raymond Burr's orchid collection.
