Savusavu Things to Do

  • Saint Andrew Catholic Cathedral

    It is located at one hour walking from Savusavu. I went there walking, both ways. Its name is Savarekareka Mission.

  • Hot Springs

    They are located in downtown, at about 5 minutes walking from teh market. There is a hotel in front, up the hill, with more hot springs, but since I was not a customer I did not go.

  • Learn to Waterski

    Because the water in front of Namale is so flat, it is a great place to learn to WaterSki! Additionally, it is also beautiful as the area is surrounded by lush tropical rainforest and you get to look back at the resort when out on the ocean. Sam, who is the dive master, is also the water ski teacher and he was very thoughtful and thorough when...

  • Spa Service at the Namale Spa

    The Namale Spa is consistently rated one of the highest in all of Fiji year over year. And for good reason. Not only does it have amazing views from every room, but the service and the staff are top notch. I had two massages during our stay and both were amazing. They also have what is called a hydro-therapy room (clothing must be warn) where you...

  • Rainforest trek to Namale waterfal

    On the Namale property is a secluded area with a waterfall and swimming hole. By making arrangements with the concierge you and your partner can have lunch served at the amazing spot. A hotel driver picks you up and drops you off at the beginning of a short hike through the tropical rainforest, about 15 minutes. Upon arrival, you have time to play...

  • Salt River Float

    This is a must do at Namale and is the perfect way to enjoy an afternoon in tropical rainforest. Just a short ride from the resort is a natural salt river which flows through the lush landscape to a large lake where you and the other guests relax. Once at the starting point, you jump from a bridge about 10 feet above and into the water. You have on...

  • Diving with Dive Namale

    We did a few diving day trips with Dive Namale and they were top notch, first class. Since we were staying at the hotel, it was really easy to book our trips. We just walked over to the dive center, told them the day we wanted to go and we were set. The charge was added to our bill. They have some amazing spots that you can get to within 5-15...

  • La Dolce Vita Dolphin Encounter

    If you like dolphins, then this is a must! We booked the "Dolphin Encounter" with our hotel concierge. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to a very secluded beach about an hour away. We boarded a small boat (approx 10 people) which took us out to a site in the ocean where the dolphins are known to be. After a few dolphin calls, we were...

  • Naturubu House - the Courthouse

    This is the local Court House of Savusavu! It is quite a modern building at the end of the village and even when the building is not so very interesting, it is a good place to see the coat of arms of the islands (see it in my 3rd picture)! The local flag will be fixed on the mast of your cruiseship as long as the ship is in port !

  • Hot springs, steaming grass & beaches

    Watch out, where you step, because a lot of the wonderfull grass that you can see in my main picture here is muddy and at some places there and on the closeby beaches you can see the steam coming out of the ground, so you need shoes to walk there on the beach, otherwise you will burn your feet. Not far from there is also a hotel with hot springs.

  • You will see some great, oldfashioned...

    You will see a lot of lovely, oldfashioned shops and colorfull shop-fronts in Savusavu, they reminded me a lot of the shops that I saw in the carribean more than 30 years ago. There are modern supermarkets as well in Savusavu, but they seem to look the same all over the world.

  • Dont miss the local market

    The local fruit-market is a must for all tourists and in the almost always extremely high temperatures in Savusavu it is also a place to cool down a bit and relax, while taking a look at tropical fruits. Dont miss to watch out for inscriptions with a quite unique spelling - see some of them in my "local customs" - tips !The merchants were very...

Savusavu Transportation

  • Pacific Sun Airlines from Nai to...

    You can get to Savusavu from Nadi either by air or by sea. We chose by air, Pacific Sun's domestic carrier, as it is the faster route. We boarded our very small plane (about 16 seats total) for our hour flight from Nadi to Savusavu. It's important to know that there is a chance that your luggage may not make it on the same flight with you. They do...

  • Flying on Air Pacific from LAX to NADI

    I have flown internationally many times and this was the worst aircraft I have ever been on. We were in economy and not only were the seats small and narrow, the flight attendants weren't friendly and the TV's in our seats didn't work. Fortunately, we had our ipad so we were able to pass the 11 hour flight with our own entertainment. They also do...

  • Take a walk in Savusavu

    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...


Savusavu Shopping

  • Good Chinese shoes

    I still use the shoes, they are good and paid about 10 Euro. In my country I would have paid at least 60 Euro. Shoes

  • Savusavu town Shopping on Saturday

    If you're looking for handmade gifts to bring back for yourself or for your friends, you'll want to go in to Savusavu town on Saturday. In addition to all the craft shops being open, this is the day that the local farmers are there with the fresh catches, fruits and veggies and more. The handcrafts shop that is inside the farmers market is the best...

  • you cannot miss them !

    As soon as you have left the building, where the tenderboats are landing you will find a large amount of stands offering all kinds of souvenirs for you ! When you buy anything to wear, it should be no problem to take it back to your homecountry, BUT when it comes to wooden souvenirs you might get into troubles in case that you travel back to...


Savusavu Local Customs

  • Beautiful local flowers

    You will find such beautiful flowers inside the building, where the tenderboats will take you ashore. There will also be local ladies offering such flowers as a welcome-present to the passengers of the big cruiseships (my last picture)!

  • Funny inscriptions galore

    The local people speak english, but sometimes they use quite a funny spelling , so watch out for inscriptions at the local market, at the shops etc.NO sitting on the table ??? - whats wrong about that ?Please click here for an easy reading of this page !

  • Bula Bula !

    Bula or Bula, Bula is something that you will hear quite often, when you take a walk on any of the Fiji Islands. Bula is the local word for "hello, how are you?" and a lot of people will great tourists as well that way in the streets.It is always ment in a friendly way, and almost never it is just a way to get in contact with a potential customer....

    Cristall Clear water & Hot Springs

    by globetrott Updated Feb 19, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The water around the island and in Savusavu is cristall clear and so you can see a lot of tropical fishes there in the water, while waiting for the tenderboats to take you back to the ship.

    Fondest memory: The weather was quite hot in the middle of November 2011, when I got to Savusavu by the cruiseship Dawn Princess. Most of the shops did take only their local currency.
