    Nadi Warnings and Dangers

    On the total I was quite happy with my cruise onboard the Dawn Princess, BUT in Port Denarau there was a lot of very bad organisation as well:OK, we had 1700 passangers onboard and we had just 4 or 5 tenders with a total capacity of not much more than 120 people at a time.The tenders needed for one way from the ship to the port 40 minutes,and then...

    Nadi Warnings and Dangers

    In Port Denarau I saw some of the most beautifull woodcarvings as well as rare, exotic sea-shells for sale in the souvenirshops. The only problem for me was the fact that I am not an expert about seashells and I dont know which ones might be considdered as "endangered species" and confiscated by any customs-controll in the world.The other problem...


Malolo Lailai Island

  • The birds have it

    Malolo Lailai Island Things to Do

    One thing I did do whilst on the island was take time out to shoot some birds. There were species here I was unfamiliar with and, due to the types of trees and the fact that they're spaced out, it made it easier to shoot them than when I'm at home in Australia.You didn't have far to go to get a picture of a bulbul, they're at every breakfast table,...

    Malolo Lailai Island Sports & Outdoors

    If you're into water sports then you may well enjoy your stay on Plantation Island. So much to choose from, diving, snorkelling, fishing, canoeing, sailing, parasailing, swimming and riding on something towed behind a boat, not to mention swimming. The stuff like canoes, catamarans etc, can be hired at reasonable rates while snorkelling gear and...

  • The Village church

    Viseisei Things to Do

    Fijians are Christians these days and they enjoy freedom of religion. In most villages the villagers share the same religion and in Viseisei they are all Methodists. Thus the village church is named after John Wesley, founder of the Methodist church. The church is very simply fitted out and looks very much like a little Methodist Church would look...

  • Village Monuments

    Viseisei Things to Do

    In Viseisei there are two monuments to the fallen in wars gone by. They each stand in very prominent positions in close proximity to the chief's house. The larger of the two features the three main weapons of war used by the fijians in early times. One was like a mallet used to hit the enemy over the head. the second was a "neckbreaker" which...

  • The Chief's House

    Viseisei Local Customs

    The chief's house stands in pride of place in the middle of the village. It is usually marked with a circle of stones around it. The house is always elevated in keeping with the tradition that the chief is higher than anyone else. All the villager's houses are low to the ground. When the chief dies, his brother (if he has one) becomes the chief....


Wayasewa Island

    Something easy to get on and off the boats.Packpack or soft sided overnight type case. Swimsuit, shorts, t-shirts, sarongs, and sandals.IT IS VERY CASUAL HERE. Be sure to bring everything that you may need.Don't forget the sunscreen. Bring film or memory card. There are none to buy there. An extra pair of shoes for hiking if you plan to do...

  • All things must end

    Wayasewa Island Favorites

    Soon it was time to leave this little island that we loved and our ever smiling hosts.We got back in the boat and headed back to Loutoka.The ride was much smoother on the way back. We have never seen more gracious and friendly people as we met there.It will be a lasting memory that we will cherish.

    Be sure to stop by the Dive shop.The Dive master will tell you want is going on around the island, in the water.When we were there the dive master was from the US but he wasleaving soon.Whoever is there now will be quite knowledgeable.

  • Welcome to Singatoka

    Singatoka Things to Do

    This is the first sign that I saw in Singatoka when the bus dropped me by the river.Then I paid attention to the high building behind the sign and discovered that it was a restaurant inside a Hindu temple.

  • The bus station

    Singatoka Transportation

    The bus sttaion is in downtown, just across the street where the market is located.It runs very often to Suva or Nadi.

  • Sigatoka Markets

    Singatoka Things to Do

    Particularly on a Friday or Saturday, these markets are probably the best in the country. Sigatoka Valley is the 'Salad Bowl' of Fiji, so all the wonderful produce comes through here. There are the usual gallery of Indian ladies desperate to sell you some beads. But equally you can buy a tapas (locally painted cloth) to take home, or a tsa tsa...


Nathula Island

  • Clear, warm water

    Nathula Island Favorites

    The water was a snorkeller's delight, crystal clear and comfortably warm. The reef was very shallow and thus ideal for snorkelling. Even if you were not into donning a mask and fins, the cruise ship had glass bottom boats which you could see the beautiful underwater world. Following a bright blue fish for ages all along the reef. He seemed totally...

  • Paddle boarding

    Nathula Island Things to Do

    The cruise ship keeps a couple of paddle boards on board which they take ashore with them to the various islands. You are free to use these at any time, and it is good fun. It is something like sea kayaking, but you sit with one leg either side of the board with your feet dangling in the water, so it is easier to balance. Even my father had a go,...

  • Underwater dangers

    Nathula Island Warnings and Dangers

    We were warned to be careful about corals, not stepping on them or breaking them off. Touching them can cause a rash, and obviously doesn't do much for conservation. Also found in and amongst the reefs here, is a very dangerous sea snake, which although not usually aggressive, is best avoided. I became quite alarmed when I saw this snake-shaped...

  • Pick your spot in the shade

    Nanuya Lailai Things to Do

    We grabbed a shady spot under the trees on the grass - I hate getting sand everywhere. The island is idyllic, beautiful white sandy beaches, totally desrted, fringed by gently swaying palms in the light breeze. It was fairly flat and there were lots of aplm trees providing welcome shade.

  • Awesome Adventures - Yasawa Flyer

    Nanuya Lailai Transportation

    If you are visiting Fiji and want to spend some time in clear blue water, white sandy beaches and not many people, you can't go past Nanuya LaiLai in the Yasawa Islands.There is a fast catamaran that visits these islands each day, dropping off tourists at the resorts, the trip is run by Awesome Adventures and offers the ability to access...

  • Singing competition

    Nanuya Lailai Nightlife

    After dinner we were to have a singing competition: each nation against the others. The Germans (the majority of the cruise passengers) took it all very seriously, whereas we'd made a big joke of it all, singing Old MacDonald had a farm, bringing out the bungy jumping sheep and tying knotted handkerchiefs on our heads. All good fun.We ahd trouble...

  • Getting there is half the fun.

    Tavewa Island Transportation

    The main ferry meets the local resorts boats out in the middle of the lagoon. Each resort has its own 18-20seat boat which they seemed to fit more people on. The first day i arrived the waves were big and crashing over the boat. 3 inches of water seperated us and the boat sinking.. Good times. But dont be alarmed as we made it just fine. Since the...

  • Fiji's Best View

    Tavewa Island Things to Do

    If you take the trail to the top of Tavewa Island you are in for a treat. It has the best view of the Blue Lagoon (yes where the movie was filmed). You have a 360 degree view from the top and it only takes 15 mintues to get there and is well worth it.

    One thing I learned at my stay on Vatulele...after a quick 20 minute guided beach trek into the serene cliffside, their are these little, pinkish creatures that only live on Vatulele in little pools of water...quite the interesting little guys...

    The "Red Prawns"' are only in this one place in the world!
