Beautiful Fiji Travel Destination for your Post-Iso Blues
With talks of Bula Bubbles allowing travel between Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, we can finally see the light at the end of the lockdown tunnel! We’ve put together some of our favourite Fiji destinations in the Mamanuca & Yasawa Island groups to inspire your travel for 2021.
Sitting off the West Coast of the main island of Viti Levu, is the stunning island group of the Mamanuca Islands. With daily boat, seaplane and helicopter transfers, this island group is easily accessible for day trips or a longer stay in paradise. The Mamanucas feature stunning beaches, colourful reefs and epic waves making it a mecca for water babies.
Best Island for Day Trippers –Malamala Beach Club
Malamala Beach Club is a fantastic day out and the world’s first beach club on its very own island! Choose from a Full Day or Half Day pass that includes return transfers from your Denarau accommodation, launch transfers from Denarau Marina to the beach club, Wi-Fi, towel service, and use of non-motorised watersports equipment. Experience white sand beaches, beachside cabanas, a resort style infinity edge pool, and views across the Mamanucas from Fiji’s best located island.
Best Island for Couples – Tokoriki Island
Home to the exquisite Tokoriki Island Resort, this boutique adults-only haven is the perfect setting to rekindle your romance and enjoy the warm Fijian hospitality surrounded by island luxury.
Best Island for Families – Malolo Lailai Island
Malolo Lailai Island is home to 3 resorts – Lomani Island Resort, Plantation Island Resort and Musket Cove Island Resort. Plantation Island Resort is definitely our pick for a family holiday filled with adventure, culture and most importantly fun! While there is plenty on offer at Planation, having close access to other resorts allows you experience new dining outlets & facilities (we recommend a treatment at Musket Cove’s Day Spa!) and let your little explorers discover more of the island.
Sitting to the north of the Mamanuca Islands is another picturesque island group called the Yasawa Islands. Although the journey is slightly longer to reach this group, you’ll be heavily rewarded for your patience by dramatic mountain peaks and white sand beaches. This haven for nature lovers is popular for divers and snorkelers alike with colourful underwater coral gardens to explore. Plus, this area is also home to Sawa-i-Lau caves, where you can swim in the turquoise saltwater surrounded by sparkling limestone caverns.
Best Island for Day Trippers – Barefoot Kuata Island
The Ultimate Encounters day trip with South Sea Cruises is truly an unforgettable experience! After being collected from your Denarau accommodation and enjoying a picturesque cruise on a high-speed catamaran past the Mamanuca Islands to the Yasawa Islands, here you’ll disembark at Kuata Island, the closest of the Yasawa Islands to Nadi. Kuata Island is a hidden small gem in the Yasawa Island archipelago. A picture postcard beach, transparent turquoise waters, unusual tall rock formations and that same warm hospitality synonymous with Fijian people. The highlight of this trip is snorkelling with sharks on the reef!
Best Island for Couples – Yasawa Island
Indulge in heavenly seclusion on an area renowned for its white sand beaches and crystal clear tropical waters. At Yasawa Island Resort and Spa there is no television and no traffic; only the sound of palm trees swaying and the ocean lapping mere steps from your private villa. With all meals and beverages included plus weekly excursions to the Blue Lagoon Caves, private beach picnics and guided snorkelling trips, everything is taken care of, so you can easily let those stresses of everyday life melt away!
Best Island of Families – Naukacuvu Island
Paradise Cove is nestled in a stunning cove on Naukacuvu Island.

With vast open spaces, coral reef, long stretch of beach and gardens, kids will be filled with wonder as they explore and play in this tropical oasis.
