A short 10-20 minute boat ride also offers easy and beautiful diving spots on Kadavu’s fringing reefs.

Malolo Island Beach
For the more adventurous and active, Malolo Island, a volcanic island part of the Mamanuca Group, offers an idyllic background to enjoy surfing, sailing wind surfing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding in its pristine waters. Or just relax on the lovely beach before touring the lush island forests. September in particular is a perfect time to visit.

Vomo Island Beach
A stunning and privately owned island, Vomo Island is surrounded by long, white sandy beaches on both sides as well as many other smaller beaches offering privacy in paradise.

If sunrises are more your thing, Mount Vomo is on the eastern side of the Island and boasts 360 degree views if you dare to conquer the peak early in the day – but any time of the day is spectacular.
The largest resort precinct in the South Pacific, Denarau Island is a short taxi ride from Nadi International Airport on the main Fiji island of Viti Levu.
