ONE of the busiest tourist spots in Nadi suffered an oil spill from a fuelling station.

The oil spill at Port Denarau Marina came from a station located at the port.

Port Denarau Marina Ltd general manager Cynthia Rasch said the oil spill had been managed.

"At this point in time, I can confirm that there was an oil spill but we have managed to contain it," she said.

She said Port Denarau Marina would continue to monitor the situation at the spill site.

Yesterday, remnants of the oil spill were seen across the main foreshore of the port, where larger vessels were docked transporting tourists from the Mamanuca and Yasawa groups.

Despite the containment, the rainy conditions resulted in the spread of the spill through the docking station.
