Cruising & Sailing

Cruising & Sailing

Taking a cruise is a great way to see more of Fiji. Part of what makes Fiji unique is its many groups of islands, each with its own culture, identity and attractions, and cruising is one of the best ways to get around them. 

If you want to stay reasonably close to the mainland Viti Levu, the Mamanucas have a huge range of world-class resorts and activities to keep you going. Cruising these islands and ‘resort hopping’ is ideal for sociable types who love keeping busy and interacting with others.

If a more laidback experience is what you’re after, the nearby Yasawas are less developed but just as beautiful, giving you the opportunity to learn about Fijian culture and lifestyle with villages dotted throughout the group.

The Lau group of islands in Fiji’s far east offer a serenely untouched vista of exotic bays and safe harbours where locals live as they did before Fiji was discovered by Europeans. You’ll need special permission to visit this group, but if you do, you’ll be treated to a unique view of Fijian culture.

Fiji’s second-largest island, Vanua Levu, is a popular cruising destination, containing the small community of Savusavu and a range of resorts in relatively close proximity.

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.

To experience Fiji’s truly pristine environment, cruising through Kadavu is a must. The fourth-largest island in the group, Kadavu 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 eco-goodness, continue on through Taveuni, the Garden Island of Fiji, where everything is a brilliant, vibrant green. The island has fabulous waterfalls in national parks, lush rainforests filled with birdlife and beautiful mountain treks.
