Cloud 9 Fiji: The Floating Bar in Mamanuca Islands

by Hayley Simpson | Updated: March 10, 2020

Cloud 9 Fiji is a dream come true.

It’s a two-level floating bar in the middle of the Malolo Barrier Reef in Fiji.

Relax on the sun deck with a cocktail in hand as you look out over Fiji’s endless azure seascape. Or, jump off the bar into the inviting ocean before devouring a wood-fired pizza. 

Backdropped by a soundtrack of the most cutting-edge DJ music you’ll ever listen to, you’ll truly feel like you’re on cloud nine.
