About 100 kilometers south of Viti Levu, Kadavu is one of the best places to experience Fiji’s incredible culture and natural beauty. Completely unspoiled, there is just one town and very few roads. Surrounded by the world famous Great Astrolabe Reef, the islands are renowned for diving. You can swim with manta rays, dive wrecks and swim through amazing coral gardens. Fishing, surfing, and kayaking are also popular while inland you’ll find lush, green rainforests bursting with stunning birdlife, glorious waterfalls, and good hiking routes.
Accommodation is plentiful, with a range of guesthouses including those suitable for a backpacker’s budget and high-end resorts many of which are accessible only by boat. Pacific Sun has daily flights from Nadi and Nausori Airport just out of Suva. For those who want to experience inter-island travel as the locals do, there is a ferry that departs from Walu Bay, Suva, on Tuesday evenings. It travels to Vunisea, Kavala Bay then back to Suva around 2 pm the following day. A shuttle bus is available to pick you up at Kadavu Airport to take you to wherever your boat is leaving from.
