    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 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,...

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....

  • 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.

    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...

  • What not to do!

    Singatoka Things to Do

    There is no better advice of what not to do in Fiji while on your tour of the Singatoka area. The pottery village visit should be obliterated from your itinerary because it is way under any expectations. What you see is a misery of artistic performance. On top of this, the curators are overly self-confident and quite adamant in demanding a...

  • 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.

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...

    Yasawairara Things to Do

    The village we visited is still very traditional (read primitive) - the only building to have electricity is the church and water comes from a spring. The doctor visits every two months or so and the children have 2 1/2 hours each way to school. On our way back to the ship, the villages had laid out a little market for us, with shells, corals, wood...

    Yasawairara Things to Do

    Meke is a group performance which mixes singing, chanting and drumming in a very catchy combination . Traditionally it is only performed in a village on special occasions - usually when the village is being visited by someone important (like us). However, meke is much more than a colourful dance, it is a way of keeping alive a culture and for...
