Where to go in Fiji: Top 3 Fiji Yasawa Islands 3


Far, far, far (depending on where you are) away lies Fiji and its 333 islands. Yes, 333. I didn’t know that before either. We’re here for 14 days, and since day 1 I feel like I’ve stepped into a postcard of the ultimate paradise island.

Everything is so beautiful. The water is clear and turquoise, the sand soft and white, coconuts and ukulele’s are plentiful and the people are so, so friendly. Every time we arrive on a new island, the hosts serenade us with a touristy “Bula” (which means ‘hello’ or ‘love’) song.

Fiji has so many islands, it’s hard to choose which ones to visit. Luckily, the transport in between the islands is very easy and comfortable. You just hop on the ‘Awesome Adventures’ boat and hop off wherever you like.

Be sure you have made prior reservations with your hosts/resort, otherwise you have to make a reservation on the boat and that’s way more expensive.

Our top 3 of Fiji’s Yasawa Islands:

There’s only one place to stay at Bounty Island, and that’s Bounty Island resort. In 30 minutes you can walk around the whole island.

There are 2 places to stay here, one of them Naqalia Lodge, run by a small Fijian family. Great people, great food. Creative and fun beach bungalows.

 

1. Nacula Island

Nacula Island is where they shot the movie Blue Lagoon, with Brooke Shields. By far the most prettiest island, and the best food. Bit more expensive than the others though (50$ per person, including 3 meals a day, tea, coffee, snacks), but completely worth it when you’re in the mood to pamper yourself.

Don’t forget about the kava (social drink event/tradition)! Just make sure you have a sweet candy or snack ready to drown out the bitter flavor after each bowl (and that’s a tip from a native Fijian, so take it!). 🙂

If you would like advice on planning your Fiji trip, feel free to ask.

BULA!!
