The Yasawa Islands Fiji
Fiji is breathtakingly beautiful. As you cruise up through the tiny isles of the Mamanucas you’ll discover the picture-postcard Fiji. On the way to and from the Yasawas, our yellow boat, the Yasawa Flyer visits South Sea Island, Beachcomber and Vomo Islands. And then, as you cross into the ancient volcanic chain of the Yasawa Islands, you’ll uncover an entirely new, perhaps grander, paradise.
The remote Yasawa Islands were formed millions of years ago by volcanoes, most evident in the southern most islands of Kuata and Waya Lailai with their dramatic elevations, honeycomb rock formations and summits just short of 600 metres above sea level.
Further north, azure lagoons surround the pristine white sandy beaches. This - the Blue Lagoon Region - is the Fiji you dream of. The beautiful environment is perfect for relaxing or enjoying the many activities on offer.
There are just over 20 resorts sheltering in the peaceful bays of Kuata, Waya and Waya Lailai, Viwa, Nanuya Balavu and Drawaqa. Further north is Naviti Island, Yaqeta, Matacawalevu, Naukacuva, Nanuya Lailai, Tavewa and Nacula. The Yasawa Flyer (or ‘The Yellow Boat’) travels to each of these islands on a daily basis, delivering travellers to their island resorts.
