Barefoot Manta Island is ideally located between two beaches. Manta rays cruise past the resort to feed during the day, and there are plenty of fantastic dive opportunities.
This resort at spectacular Drawaqa Island lies in a superb location between two beaches. Each beach looks out in differing directions, so there is always a tanning spot out of the wind! One of the beaches overlooks the lagoon where the awe inspiring manta rays come to feed each day. Much of the surrounding waters of the island have been declared a Marine Reserve.
The standard bures and dorms (just 4 per room) are set amongst mature trees just back from the beach with a central facilities area for bathrooms. The superior bures are safari tent style with a full opening wall and deck toward the beach and an ensuite bathroom with outside shower.
The resorts new owners have a strong commitment to the environment both on land and in the ocean. Their background is in diving and they have undertaken a lot of research and conservation work in Fiji and Australia.
There is a Marine Biologist at the resort to provide in depth interpretation and information. There is excellent snorkelling straight off the beach including some great drift snorkels. An experienced dive team are also there to take you on some of the most awesome dive experiences you'll experience in Fiji.
The resort offers a relaxed nature based experience in a location you'll never get tired of photographing.
