Fiji’s Best Sand Cay & Private Island Picnics 

Few culinary experiences are more romantic than a gourmet picnic lunch on your own private island rising from an aquamarine sea.  

Likuliku Lagoon Resort -Mociu Island is a nature reserve sitting within a marine reserve and is available for exclusive use of guests. Lap up the island lifestyle from a shaded beachfront daybed, tuck into a picnic lunch, hike to the highest peak and swim and snorkel on the fringing reef.

Sand ClayLikuliku Lagoon Resort - Mociu Private Island

Royal Davui Island - Take a boat ride to a remote sand cay rising from fringing reef where a gourmet picnic lunch is set up, complete with beanbags, chilled refreshments and sunshade. Enjoy complete isolation as the tide falls and the sandy cay rises from the sea, with a soundtrack of serenity as wavelets lap the shore.

Vomo Island Fiji – For the ultimate castaway indulgence hire the tiny island of Vomo Lailai for a white-linen luncheon for two set up on a shaded beachfront platform. Laze on the daybed beneath palm trees, swim in the sea and stay as long as you please – ‘rescue’ is moments away by two-way radio.

Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort – Escape to the white sand beaches of  Naviavia Island for an intimate island picnic for two. A short boat ride from the resort, the island rises from fringing reef and a marine sanctuary, where late afternoons are tinged with dusky pastel hues as the tropical sun slides behind the horizon.

Organic Farms and Fresh Seafood Options 

Few culinary experiences are more romantic than a gourmet picnic lunch on your own private island rising from an aquamarine sea.  

Kokomo Private Island Fiji – Championing local, seasonal produce, a 2.2ha organic farm including hydroponic garden, vanilla plantation, beehives and hen house underpin Kokomo’s farm-to-table philosophy. Mediterranean and modern Australian flavours tantalise at Beach Shack, Asian-style street food features at Walker d’Plank, try wood-fired pizza followed by house-made gelato at Kokocabana.

COMO Laucala Island – Menus are thoughtfully planned around the bounty of the island’s organic and hydroponic gardens along with fresh-caught bounty of the sea. Where cuisine is nutritionally optimised using purest raw and cooked ingredients, choose from five dining locations, from fine dining at Plantation House, treetop dining influenced by Asian flavours at Seagrass Restaurant, poolside, beachside or private in-residence dining.

Vatuvara Private Islands Resort – An eco-conscious solar-powered resort, guided by the island’s horticulturalist, fruit, vegetables and microgreens are harvested from the island’s organic farm and greenhouses while fresh-caught seafood is plucked sustainably from the surrounding sea. At Valhalla dine on Pacific Rim cuisine from the elevated deck overlooking the South Pacific Ocean, or try a Fijian Lovo feast, wood-fired pizza amongst tropical gardens at Jim’s Bar & Grill

Turtle Island – With an eco-philosophy of sea-and-farm-to-table cuisine, dining at Turtle Island is all about sustainability inspired by a fresh harvested island bounty. Evening dinner parties featuring sumptuous cuisine are hosted at exquisite locations around the island, whether beachside beneath a setting sun, amidst tropical gardens or on the island’s summit at Mt Ford where panoramic views provide a backdrop to unforgettable dinners.

Six Senses Fiji – Guided by an ethos of sustainability, social and environmental responsibility, Six Senses Fiji’s culinary delights are harvested close to home to minimise environmental footprints. Menu inspiration at five dining locations comes from a hen house known affectionately as Cluckingham Palace, beehives producing honeycomb and honey, and an organic farm harvested daily from diverse plantings of herbs, fruits and vegetables
