Your Fiji BUCKET LIST!
Four things you must say yaaass to while exploring the Yasawas...
SCUBA S DIVING
Always A Alwayswantedto wanted to try scuba diving? d Well, there’s no better place to give it a go than in Fiji! As you swim among amazing coral reefs and ruins, your instructor will gently pick up creatures for you to touch, such as starfish, sea cucumbers and clams. If you’re lucky, you’ll also spot stingrays, sea turtles, eels and maybe a reef shark or two!
SAWA- I- LAU CAVES
A quick b boat ride id f from Blue l Lagoon Beach Resort, the magical Sawa-i-lau caves are a must-see! With a local guide leading the way, the first cave you’ll come across is filled with natural light. As you float and splash about in the clear, cool water, feel yourself being totally transformed by the raw beauty of the limestone rock formations. After a short swim through an underwater passage – don’t freak out, it’s literally about one metre long! – you’ll find yourself in the second chamber, which is in complete darkness! Making your way back to the first cave, you’ll be given the opportunity to climb up inside the cave wall – and jump off a ledge into the pool below. Locals believe that if a woman can’t fit through the small gap that is the entrance, then she’s newly pregnant!
W Whileitdoesn’tnecessarily While it doesn’t necessarily sc scream adventure, a visit to a l local village is still an exciting activity – and gives you the chance to experience the real Fiji. Check your resort’s website – or daily activity board once you’re there! – to see if they’re being offered and the costs.
