Which island is my perfect match?
It's a true luxury to have to choose between paradises! Will you opt for an island known for its party atmosphere or a resort renowned for cocktails and massages? You might go for a tiny palm-fringed speck of an island or one that is majestic, rugged, and wild. Some resorts have calm, shallow waters on white-sand beaches while others have deep channels just off their shores where manta rays glide by between May and October.
Whatever you choose, you won't be disappointed! Remember, you can always book a Package, which includes a fantastic range of resorts and islands meaning you'll experience more than one.
Here's a VERY brief rundown on some standout features, but most island resorts offer something for everyone.
Close to Port Denarau, lots of entertainment & water sports
The Mamanuca Islands are a great option. These islands are tiny and cute as a button but overflowing with activities. Try South Sea Island or Beachcomber Island Resort.
You can find your own secret pocket of paradise at Blue Lagoon Beach Resort, Octopus Resort, Coconut Beach Resort, or Paradise Cove Resort.
Every night is a Friday
If you want a more social atmosphere, we recommend Mantaray Island Resort or try South Sea Island which offers a range of evening entertainment, including limbo nights if you want to get your dance on!
If you want to get the adrenalin pumping Barefoot Kuata Resort is the go-to place for snorkeling with reef sharks or go all out and do the intro dive with Bull Sharks. Mantaray Island Resort is the home to the famous manta rays (May - Oct), which is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Blue Lagoon Beach Resort and Oarsman's Bay Lodge are at the centre of the Blue Lagoon region which is the gateway to the Sawa-I-Lau Caves and some pretty fabulous snorkelling.
Want to get the best insta shots to make all your mates at home really jealous? The summit hike at both Barefoot Kuata Resort (best at sunset) and Mantaray Island Resort (best at sunrise) should not be missed. The Sawa-I-Lau caves are definitely worth the trip as well as a walk over the hill from Nanuya Boathouse to Lo's Tea House for some great island and lagoon shots.
