Discover the Mamanuca Islands—Fiji’s exotic island chain just off the west coast of Viti Levu. The Mamanuca Islands personify paradise. The chain is visible from the coast of Nadi and there are charter boats and transfer services that operate out of Port Denarau. Depending on which island you go to, the journey will take between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours. Charter a boat, hire a jet-ski or ride in a helicopter to get there. Some resorts, like the Tokoriki Island Resort, will arrange the journey for you—you can check whether this is the case with our My Fiji Holiday Experts here.
Once there, stay in ultimate comfort, indulge your senses and completely unwind in your own private slice of Fijian excellence! The Mamanuca Islands sit in a lagoon between the Great Sea Reef and the mainland and each of the 20-plus islands boast lush mountainous interiors that meet pristine white beaches and there are surrounding blue-green waters to really set the tropical scene! Swim or snorkel in the clear, calm waters, dive at the famous Big W or Gotham City spots, surf the 8-10 foot swells at Cloudbreak, watch for dolphins from the shore or try your hand at parasailing, windsurfing and more!
The Mamanucas can cater for both active or indulgent holidays. Amongst the most popular of the islands are Malolo Lai Lai, Tivua, Vomo, Tokoriki, Qalito, Treasure, Bounty, Beachcomber, Navini and Mana and each are known to appeal to slightly different needs and interest groups. Head to Malolo Lai Lai to watch the yachts prepare for the Fiji Regatta out of Musket Cove, enjoy the nightlife and backpacking experience at Beachcomber, indulge in 5-star luxury at Tokoriki or book Tivua (aka My Fiji Island) privately for your group to enjoy after a Captain Cook Cruise!
Whether you’re after an adults-only retreat or a true island experience to enjoy with your family, the Mamanuca Islands are great places to visit! Contact our Fiji Holiday Experts now to find out more!
