Cruises and sailing
Taking a cruise is a terrific way to see more of Fiji. Fiji, with its many groups of islands, each with its own culture, identity and attractions is what makes it unique and cruising is one of the best ways to get around them.
Depending on what you are looking for, there are various islands that one can cruise around. Each island in Fiji whether it’s the Mamanucas, Yasawas, Kadavu, Taveuni, Lau or Ovalau – there’s an opportunity to learn about Fijian culture and lifestyle with villages dotting all the islands here.
Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second-largest island, is a popular cruising destination and consists of places like Savusavu and Labasa.
For a taste of what life was like in Fiji’s colonial days, cruise around Ovalau Island and visit Levuka, the country’s first capital. Nearby, the islands of Gau, Batiki and Nairai are virtually untouched, consisting mainly of villages.
Cruising through Kadavu is a must if you want to experience Fiji’s truly pristine environment. Kadavu is the fourth largest island in the group and is remarkably untouched, containing a mixture of volcanic peaks and magnificent rainforests which sweep down to the water’s edge.
If that doesn’t quite give you your fill of environmental high, continue on through Taveuni, the Garden Island of Fiji, where everything is a brilliant, vibrant green. The island has fabulous waterfalls, national parks, lush rainforests filled with birdlife and beautiful mountain treks.
