STEP 3 VILLAGE VISIT

Fijians are strongly rooted to their culture, land and mataqali (family). Be accompanied by a guide to teach you basic protocols to experience village life and meet the villagers. The Ratu (Chief) may even welcome you and you could also have the opportunity to try kava, a traditional Fijian drink.

SAWA-I-LAU CAVES TRIP

The spectacular scenery in the Sawa-I-Lau region is worth this trip alone, but then there’s the magical experience of the sacred caves themselves (be brave and take the underwater tunnel to the secondary cavern!). No diving experience is necessary and flotation devices can be provided.

GUIDED HIKES

The Yasawa Islands are made up of a series of volcanic peaks. A climb to one of their summits offers panoramic views of the region’s unique landscape.

SEASPRAY DAY ADVENTURE

Experience a special day cruising the crystal-clear waters, beautiful beaches and lagoons of the Mamanuca Islands aboard a 15 metre yacht. You’ll snorkel at the uninhabited island of Modriki where the Tom Hanks film Cast Away was set. Enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch on board (drinks included) and visit a traditional Fijian village.

SUNSET TUBE CRUISE

Chill out with a cool drink in hand, floating in the water, in a tube or on the boat, watching one of Fiji’s famous sunsets. A spectacular end to the day.

FIJIAN COOKING LESSON

Learn to cook simple and delicious traditional Fijian dishes using fresh local ingredients.

Mouva Reef is only a short boat ride from the white sandy beaches of Barefoot Kuata, Naqalia Lodge and Wayalailai Resorts. A spectacular site from above and below the water, the reef has an abundance of colourful fish, beautiful corals, along with whitetip and blacktip reef sharks. If you’re feeling nervous, rest assured these friendly sharks are more interested in the fish than you.

NOTE: If events beyond our control make an AWESOME EXPERIENCES add-on activity unavailable, an alternative will be provided. Not all activities are included in all packages. Please refer to itineraries and the pricing supplement for details.
