Yasawa Island Resort
If you’re a solitude junkie, then this remote spot will play to your preferences. Limited to 18 bures (Fijian for ‘sanctuary’), the resort promises a bona fide getaway, with all accommodations right on the beach and with thatched roofs, hammocks and sun decks. Diving and trips to the Blue Lagoon caves are available when you’ve had enough of sun worshipping.
Cutting a swathe along the Western Region of Fiji, these 20 or so volcanic islands are a favourite for short cruises, stopping off over three or four days and getting a taste of island life. Snorkelling and diving are obvious popular pastimes along the beaches here, and it’s possible to see local crafts such as bracelet weaving in the villages. It’s most famous spot is Nanuya Levu – more famously known as ‘The Blue Lagoon’.
