When you are coming by cruiseship, your ship has to anchor outside of the port and
the small tenderboats will take you ashore within a time of about 15 minutes.
The landingplace of the tenderboats will be at a shopping-centre including also a travelagency, there might be local musicians like we enjoyed them there all day long.
There is no further customs-formalities and not even our boarding-card was checked by the local authorities.

Everything that might be of interest for the ordinary tourist is within walking-distance
from the place where the tenderboats are landing. I took a walk of about 2 hours in the hot sun and as this was my only visit in Savusavu, you can see here in my page how much you can see and enjoy within that quite short periode of time.
All places of interest in Savusavu are within a range of 700 meters from the place, where the tenders will take you to !
The ones of you who are daring enough might even try to take one of the many local buses that are waiting on the big square in front of the covered market in Savusavu.
Dont expect to find an AC, but a lot of the windows will be open and cool down the bus a bit while driving. Most drivers will speak english and tickets have to be payed in the local currency !
Good luck & hopefully you will be back in time onboard the ship !
