The accommodation ranges from traditional thatched beachfront Villas and Bures (Fijian for cottages) to a fun tree-house shared facility that makes picking a great and affordable diving holiday to Fiji very simple. The Uprising Beach Resort offers a unique variety of accommodation options where you can make yourself feel at home in one of the 23 guestrooms featuring spacious kitchenettes and private patios with beautiful ocean and garden views.

The resort’s restaurant is set on the beachside with a wide range of dishes from all-time favorites such as beef burgers, large selections of pasta and fresh pizzas, Asian and Indian spiced dishes and curries, large salads and the chef’s daily specials. The kitchen sources all of its fresh ingredients locally and aims to deliver a menu that will satisfy any taste bud.

Aqua-Trek Dive Centre

Pacific Harbour

Aqua-Trek pioneered shark diving in Fiji over 20 years ago and shark expert Brandon Paige (the founder and creator of the shark feed) created the Beqa shark dive on Shark Reef in 1999. Aqua-Trek now operates the Ultimate Shark Encounter on nearby Lake Reef offering the best visibility, longer bottom time, a larger shark population and more regular tiger shark sightings. Since 1999 Aqua-Trek has been working closely with the Fiji Government and the traditional owners of the reefs to protect the sharks by having the reefs and the surrounding area declared Marine Protected Areas.

Aqua-Trek is Fiji's premier dive operator serving divers with very friendly and professional staff, a 5 star standard of quality and a pristine safety record. The Aqua-Trek's facility offers world-class dive adventures in Beqa Lagoon, renowned for its stunning soft coral displays, reefs teeming with fish and numerous caves and tunnels that are home to weird and wonderful exotic critters.

Whether you are a novice or an experienced diver, Aqua-Trek can offer you first class diving adventures. The dive shop, located in Pacific Harbour, features top brand equipment, fast modern boats, and friendly and experienced professional staff. Dives generally take place in the morning or afternoon depending on the dive centre’s schedule.

The dive crew will pick you up from your resort from 8:10am onwards.
