Currently tenanted, high income

Fiji is rapidly becoming a sought-after safe haven from the troubles of the world. The economy is building with confidence, and political stability has returned to the country. Investors from all over the world are starting to see the opportunities available, with private sector-driven Government policies and investment incentives. Tourism has surpassed previous levels, and the expansion of infrastructure will ensure continuity of growth in this sector.
But the greatest asset of this gem in the South Pacific is the people of Fiji. The friendly smiling faces welcome a diverse range of nationalities to the country. The workforce is well-educated, and the standard of living is increasing steadily.
Navua is a rural town on the Navua River, less than an hour’s drive from Suva, 10 minutes from Pacific Harbour, and 2 hours from Nadi. Both Nadi and Suva have international airports. Services provided include post office, police station, supermarkets, hardware stores, sports arenas, provincial government offices, hospital and court house. Navua services a regional population of approximately 10,000. The hinterland is flat, rich delta country, with an extensive irrigation scheme, rising to the magnificent Namosi and Serua Ranges. The waterfalls, rainforest and dramatic rock sculptures are breathtaking. Tour companies operate whitewater rafting, kayaking, and cultural village expeditions in this region. Pacific Harbour has been described as the Adventure Capital of Fiji. The holiday/retirement residential centre boasts an international resort hotel, a Trent Jones Jr-designed 18-hole championship golf course, restaurants, shops, supermarket, cultural centre and museum, post office and police post. Pacific Harbour is the base for activities such as whitewater expeditions, scuba diving trips, game fishing charters, and rainforest trekking.
The property is just 3 kilometres from Navua. 3-phase electricity, water, telephone and broadband internet are all connected. Buildings on the property comprise a comfortable 2-bedroom weatherboard house, a packing shed/freezer complex and workshops.
The property comprises 245 acres of freehold land, surrounded on three sides by the Navua River and the Pacific Ocean. Fiji has the only freehold land in the South Pacific, and represents only 7% of total Fiji land. River frontage is 1800 metres, while sandy beachfront measures 1200 metres. This is the closest sandy beach to Suva.
The land is currently on 2 titles, with a third in progress to adjoin over 5 acres of increased beachfront land.
Approximately 150 acres is untouched estuarine vegetation, which supports a rich breeding environment for marine life, unspoiled by pollution, and flushed with pristine seawater and estuarine water from the river.
Subdivision of the property has huge financial potential, and the vendors have developed a subdivision plan, which would be available to the purchaser.
The reef, just offshore, is the gateway to Beqa Lagoon, acknowledged as one of the 5 top dive sites in the world. Game fishing abounds on the doorstep, with mahi-mahi, wahoo, yellowfin tuna, sailfish and the great black and striped marlin landed regularly. The Navua River provides safe anchorage and mooring for vessels of all types.
Originally purchased by the vendors for the purposes of establishing a shrimp farm, the site satisfies all criteria for successful aquaculture production, either marine, brackish or freshwater. Flat land, clay-based soil, absence of acid-sulphate, herbicides or pesticides, combine to provide potential organic classification for marine products grown.
Nutrient-rich pond water, when exchanged, is released into the mangrove system, stimulating the breeding environment.
A purchaser with hatchery skills would have access to local broodstock and, with a self-controlled supply of post-larvae, would have the key to a very successful operation. There is extensive scope for expansion. The farm has most recently cultured commercially the mud crab, arguably considered the most delectable crustacean of all.
