Fiji’s second largest island is less westernized and less mainstream than Viti Levu (Fiji’s mainland). The coastline of Vanua Levu is irregular and deeply indented; the large Tunuloa Peninsula forms Natewa Bay, the longest bay in the South Pacific. It is edged by steep, green mountains and has a resident population of spinner dolphins.
Vanua Levu has a well-deserved reputation for diving and snorkelling. The nearby Rainbow Reef has some of the best dive sites in the South Pacific. The many deep bays are fantastic for kayaking and the lush, rugged interior offers exceptional bird watching.
Vanua Levu offers many authentic natural and cultural experiences, and the local township of Savusavu was a copra port in earlier days. There’s vibrancy about the place with forty to sixty boats at anchor in the harbour at any given time. Locals say it’s what the mainland was like fifty years ago.
With Savusavu only ten minutes by road from Savasi Island, you can go anytime you want, but we’re betting you’ll want to kick back and enjoy Savasi Island and its immediate surrounds as much as possible.
