Postcard view ... Sunset on the renowned strip on the Korotogo back road along the coral coast.

... or for a spot of exploring.

Right next door to the Gallery is Viti Surf Legend, which sells beachwear, bags and accessories.

Walk for a few minutes and you come to Crow's Nest, "a small, relaxed resort with gourmet fare and a seagoing flare."

Having recently changed owners, the resort has been extensively upgraded and refurbished to meet international standards but maintains its nautical origins.

The nautical theme runs throughout and rooms are named and decorated after ships that shaped Fiji's history in the 1800's.

The Crow's Nest has eight deluxe oceanview villas and 12 executive self-contained villas. Dormitory accommodation is also available. Facilities include a restaurant that serves "international and local cuisine at affordable prices" and a pool. Cultural theme nights provide entertainment at the resort. Horseback riding on the beach can also be booked through reception. A half hour ride along the beach costs $10 while an hour-long ride up to the mountains costs $20. The Crow's Nest calls itself "the heart of coral coast on Fiji's sunset strip."

Next you have the Vakaviti Surf Shack, the ideal place for surfers and backpackers. The Casablanca Hotel stands out with its white, stuccoed Mediterranean style architecture. The hotel has eight self-contained fully furnished rooms, a pool, private park, barbeque area and an outdoor shower surrounded by plants. Step out on to the balcony for a marvellous view of the deep blue ocean Fiji is renowned for. "We like to serve people, we treat you as part of the family, not as a guest," says owner, Mostafa Khattab. Sit down for a cuppa with Mostafa for all the goss along the Sunset Strip. The beachside Sinbad Pizza House serves up European, Indian and Mediterranean fare alongside Middle Eastern style pizzas. At night, you can put your dancing shoes on and head to the Cous Cous Nightclub for a fun night out.

Next up you have Bedarra Inn, another cosy option to choose from. Waratah Lodge next door takes its name from the national flower of Australia. It has three A frame bures that house up to seven people. There are plenty of plants and flowers on the property and one has a feeling of being in a garden setting here. Waratah is ideal for all types of travellers from couples, senior citizens to whole families.

After Waratah Lodge you have Le Cafť, which has a splendid bar and outdoor dining area as well as a pool table.

It is the perfect place to have an exotic cocktail, grab a bite to eat or shoot a few rounds of pool.

At the end of sunset strip is the Beach Side Mini Mart, where you can do a bit of shopping, play pool or just lounge around and watch a bit of local television.

Also located in the Sunset Strip area is Teuila Flowers. Teuila is Samoan for ginger flower and the woman behind this is Ann Hicks Mohammed.

She currently does all the floral arrangements for the Outrigger Hotel, including bouquets for weddings held at the hotel.

"All the flowers are cut on the day when orders are placed, so they are fresh and the bouquets are long lasting," she says.

Just immediately behind the sunset strip lies the luxurious Outrigger Reef Resort and directly opposite that is Fiji's only wild life park, the Kula Eco Park.

About 15 minutes drive from these places is Sigatoka Town where you can go to and browse around for more shopping and insights. Of course the best part of the Sunset Strip is the beach.

Swim, snorkel and canoe to your heart's content. Or simply grab a book and some tanning oil and lay out on the beach.

Whatever you do, be sure to take in a sunset on this heavenly strip.
