Vanua Levu

Vanua Levu

Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second largest island, is less tourist-oriented than Viti Levu, making it a great destination for the more adventurous traveller.
From the picturesque main town of Savusavu, with its sheltered bay that provides a popular mooring spot for visiting yachts, to the untouched rainforest of the Wasali Nature Reserve with hiking trails leading to spectacular views, Vanua Levu is a natural paradise. Whether you’re exploring the Snake Temple near Labasa, diving to discover the magnificent soft corals off the coast or just driving the Hibiscus Highway, Vanua Levu has lots to offer.

On Vanua Levu, cross an item off your bucket list by getting up close with a pod of local dolphins. In Natewa Bay, both Spinner and Bottle-Nose dolphins are common sights. Even if the dolphins don’t make an appearance, fantastic diving and snorkelling will make the trip worthwhile.

If you’re keen to stay on dry land, you can meet the locals at Vuadomo Village, discover hidden waterfalls and tropical flora in the rainforest, or explore the bustling Savusavu Farmers’ Market.
