If you’re looking for a Fijian getaway minus the tourists, Elizabeth Thurston writes in International Traveller that Vanua Levu fits the bill on so many levels.
This largely unspoilt piece of paradise boasts:
- Rolling green hills, primeval rainforests, coconut plantations and myriad examples of a rich colonial past
- Quaint bars and cafes frequented by expats and yachties, swapping yarns over Fiji Gold beers
- Hiking trips to hot springs and waterfalls and fishing, diving and snorkelling in stunning locations.
And all without the hordes of tourists found on the more high-traffic Fijian islands.
Comfortable, affordable places to stay on Vanua Levu include Hidden Paradise Guest House, Daku Resort and Naveria Heights Lodge. Great little eateries include The Surf and Turf, The Captain’s Table, Savusavu Wok and Sea View Café.
Located just 64 kilometres north of Viti Levu, Vanua Levu is a location largely untouched by tourism.
