A brief but scenic flight from Nadi or Suva lays the friendly Northern Fiji. Fiji’s second to fourth largest islands, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and Qamea are only an hour away from Viti Levu and are the ideal spot for a Fiji honeymoon offering seclusion, breathtaking sceneries and a warm Fijian hospitality.
Vanua Levu has rugged, meandering shores, numerous scenic bays and beaches along the untouched coastline. There are two main towns, Labasa in the sugar-cane growing area on the island’s millennium north and Savusavu, a small port and market centre to the south, also home to a magnificent natural deep port with anchorage. Savusavu offers the best range of accommodation suitable to meet all needs, ranging from best value for money to more luxurious resorts.
Fiji’s second largest island has lots to see and do for the more adventurous traveller. The island is home to the Wasali Nature Reserve, an untouched rainforest with hiking trails leading to spectacular views, the Snake Temple near Labasa, a spiritual area of worship where thousands of people go to pray every year, beautiful scuba diving spots covered with colourful soft corals and the Hibiscus highway where you can go for a scenic walk in the afternoons.
In the evening, the nightlife in Savusavu tends to be on the quiet side with a handful of restaurants offering Chinese, Indian and island style menus. The hotels and resorts in the area offer fine dining and evening entertainment to their guests and bring in the local villagers with their traditional songs and dances. This is a great way to interact with the local community and gain a good insight to their way of life.
The costs per day in resort will depend on the resort of your choice and we will offer you the best available options. If you are looking for an all-inclusive package with maximum pampering and comfort the Namale Resort & Spa is perfect and you can be sure to have a great time and return rejuvenated. For a resort close to the hassle and bustle of Savusavu and good value for money the Koro Sun Resort & Rainforest Spa is located 10 minutes from the port and local restaurants.
Being one of Fiji’s official ports of entry, Savusavu can be reached by air and sea. A short scenic flight from Nadi or Suva to Savusavu takes approximately one hour on a ten seat plane. This is a great way to get a bird’s eye view of the multitude of colourful reefs below. Pacific Sun operates three flights per day between Nadi and Savusavu airport. You can also charter a seaplane or a wheeled plane through Pacific Island Air & Seaplanes from Nadi International Airport which will allow you to carry your all-important extra luggage allowance.
Known as the “Garden Island of Fiji”, Taveuni is the result of a gigantic volcanic eruption which created a beautiful paradise island setting with a blend of reefs, beaches, tropical rainforests, coconut plantations and highlands, perfect for families and couples looking for adventure or that special getaway. Taveuni is Fiji’s third largest island, lying on the north east of Viti Levu and one of the few places that lie on the 180 degree meridian, the point turning one day to the next, not that you will get to see any difference but still something that is good to know and you will get to cross this point on the way to Paradise Taveuni .
Taveuni is well known for amazing and colourful scuba diving adventures as well as beautiful walks though the Bouma National Heritage Park offering hiking trails and world-class bird watching with Kula Lorikeets, Silk tails, Orange Doves and over 100 other species of birds.
In the evening Taveuni becomes very quiet, calm and serene, offering the perfect atmosphere to unwind and relax after a full on day of advetures. Paradise Taveuni will organise evening entertainment for guests and bring in local village chiefs and entertaining groups to prepare some of the best kava you will ever have while dancing under the moonlight.
Getting to this hidden paradise can be a little challenging but you are guaranteed an experience of a life time. The direct flight from Nadi lasts less than one hour followed by a road transfer that lasts around one hour taking you through Taveuni’s highlands whilst enjoying the mountain and ocean scenes.
Qamea and neighbouring islets offer you a tropical paradise of adventure and beauty that will remain in your heart for many years to come. You may ultimately decide to lounge the day away on the beach or by the resort’s free form swimming pool nestled in the jungle, but if it is activities and adventure you seek, you can be sure you will be as busy as you want to be. The Qamea Resort & Spa is the only resort on Qamea Island featuring a beautiful white sand beach and a stunning house reef. Yes, a house reef and a white sandy beach on the resort’s doorstep!
At Qamea you can avail yourself on a wide range of complimentary activities including incredible snorkeling, hobie cat sailing, windsurfing, sea canoeing, hiking, croquet, visiting one of the local villages and lots more.
In the evening at the Qamea Island you will be offered a range of complimentary activities in which you can take part. The atmosphere in the evening is great offering a mix of mouth-watering food, dance, entertainment and songs. You will be in for a special treat as soon as the group of local villagers starts singing. The “Meke” performance is high on the agenda, a traditional way of passing history and legends from one generation to another through music and dance. Typical Meke songs and dance representing the journey of the Fijian ancestors across the ocean in search of a homeland, as well as significant battles, joys and tears.
Qamea Island is just off the north east coast of Taveuni, a scenic fifty minutes flight from Nadi. Upon arrival in Nadi or Suva, you will be transferred to one of Fiji’s domestic airlines for a visual adventure flight over the breath-taking azure blue waters, coral reefs and deserted islands to Taveuni. You will then be met at the airport and transferred by private car and boat crossing to Qamea Island.
