Maybe this bar in Fiji is called Cloud 9 because it’s as close as the people who visit will ever get to heaven on Earth. No matter the meaning behind its name, Cloud 9 bar is well worth a visit: It floats in the middle of the ocean in Fiji , and offers a luxurious experience in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

The Cloud 9 bar in Fiji is a bar that floats in the middle of the crystal clear, turquoise waters that Fiji is known for. The bar is two levels, offers a fully stocked bar, and serves pizza. The bar sometimes hosts a DJ, so expect a party atmosphere. Given the location and space, it might not be rowdy but probably won’t be totally low key either.

Cloud 9 also offers 30 and 60 minute jet ski and island tours, which take people to the secluded tropical islands around Roro Reef, including the uninhabited Modriki Island. You can also book a parasailing tour in advance.

Guests are permitted to jump off the bar into the turquoise waters below, so swimming off Cloud 9 is encouraged. You can also rent snorkeling gear for $15.

If you’re hoping to simply relax while sipping a tropical cocktail, the bar is outfitted with comfortable deck chairs and chaise lounges where guests can take in the turquoise waters and endless horizon.

Where is Cloud 9 bar

The Cloud 9 bar is on a secluded stretch of ocean surrounded by small islands and coral reefs. The exact location is the Vanua Malolo waters on Ro Ro Reef. The island to bar is Denarau, and it’s probably easiest to get to Cloud 9 from there unless you’re staying at a nearby resort.

How to get to Cloud 9 bar

The bar is about a 45 minute boat ride from Port Denarau, one of the most bustling tourist hubs in Fiji. The bar recommends booking one of the official transport boats from the port directly to the bar. These ferries depart at 9 am and 1 pm, and return to the port at 2pm and 6pm, your group could easily spend the day at Cloud 9.

If you’re staying at one of the resorts, including Funky Fish resort and Malolo Island Resort, you can take a 10 minute speedboat ride out to the bar. Guests are also welcome to arrive by jet ski or sea plane.

There is no entry fee, and the bar does not take cash.
