About 100 kilometres south of Viti Levu, Kadavu is one of the few remaining undeveloped islands in Fiji today.
Completely unspoiled, Kadavu is one of the best places to experience Fiji’s incredible culture and natural beauty.
Surrounded by the world famous Great Astrolabe Reef, the islands are renowned for diving and snorkelling. This magnificent reef is one of the largest in the world and home to an abundance of marine life unequalled in Fiji. You can swim with manta rays, dive wrecks and swim through amazing vibrant 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. Bird watching is also a popular pastime, and the colourful Kadavu Parrot, which is now a protected species, can be easily observed.
For travellers interested in getting away from the typical tourist spots, Kadavu is a great option where limited accommodation consists of a few small resorts and a guesthouse.
Kadavu is easily accessible with flights from Nadi and Nausori (Suva) Airport. For those who want to experience inter island travel as the locals do, there is an overnight ferry that departs from Walu Bay, Suva, on Tuesday and Friday evenings. A shuttle bus is available to pick you up at Kadavu Airport to take you to wherever your boat is leaving from.
