Fiji - Yasawas

Doing our very best stretch in the Yasawas.

One of the most beautiful places you'll ever visit

Our oceanswimsafari to Fiji's Yasawa island group is one of our marquee adventures. We stay and swim around the fabled "Blue Lagoon". You saw it in the movie; now you can swim it.

Our Yasawas oceanswimsafari in 2017 runs prior to the Mana Fiji SwimFest, from October 16-23.

The Yasawas are a long, skinny, mountainous island chain that runs along the outer reef to the nor'-west of Fiji's main island, Viti Levu. From Mana Island's North Beach, you can see, on the northern horizon, a shadowy mountain, like Michener's Bali Hai (which for Michener actually was off Santo in Vanuatu). That's the bottom of the Yasawas. The journey up there on the Yasawa Flyer, a daily, ocean-going ferry service, is worth it for the journey alone: the islands are stunning in their craggy, looming presence. The journey on the Flyer stops at tiny resorts all the way up, and all the way back. We go all the way, to the fabled "Blue Lagoon", Tavewa lagoon.

By Tavewa lagoon, we base ourselves at a small, boutique resort, also named, Blue Lagoon. From there, we embark on a new swim each day, over reefs, across channels between islands. And we visit the heart of the Yasawa, the caves at Sawa-i-Lau. The locals reckon that, unless you've been to the inner cave at Sawa-i-Lau, then you haven't really been to the Yasawas. It's in that inner cave, they say, that the spirit of the Yasawa resides.

You can fish; you can dive; you can visit local schools and villages; you can attend local church services -- the singing is beautiful -- or you can just laze on the beach between swims, sipping cocktails, reading, enjoying soothing massages under the palms, nodding off to the music of the wind in the palm fronds...

Tavewa lagoon is surrounded by the islands of Nanuya Lailai, Nacula, Matacawalevu and Tavewa. At its southern end is Nanuya (levu -- big Nanuya), otherwise known as Turtle Island, one of the world's most exclusive resorts. The Yasawas are one of the most remote places on earth, and one of the most glorious places to swim.

We've been involved in tours to the Yasawas since 2004. We've been running our own tours there since 2010.
