About the Mamanuca Islands

Due to their proximity to Nadi, the Mamanuca Islands are popular day trip destinations for guests staying on the mainland as many can be explored in a day trip. Malolo Island is the largest island in the group and the Mamanuca islands include Malolo Lai Lai, Qalito, Tivua, Treasure, Beachcomber, Bounty, Navini, Mana, Navini and Vomo to name but a few.

There are a wide variety of Mamanuca island resorts, many of which are well established with bars, motorised water sports, restaurants and nightlife and many allow day visitors to use their facilities, although overnight guests usually have priority to facilities. For those who enjoy the hedonistic lifestyle, you can’t beat Beachcomber resort – a famous backpacker resort where the party continues all night long, but other resorts offer a more relaxed vacation experience. Musket Cove is a sponsor of the annual Fiji Regatta and boasts its own marina, so is very popular with yachties.

Between the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands lie the Sacred Islands celebrated as the birth place of Fiji.

Captain Cook Cruises own our own piece of paradise with our exclusive Tivua Island. Our island caters exclusively to our day trippers and small ship cruise passengers and we offer all the facilities and services on the island to cater to their needs. The island can be booked exclusively for private groups and is popular with wedding parties and there are just two bures on the island so the wedding couple can waive their guests farewell and enjoy a night on their own private honeymoon island.

Explore Tivua Island on our Tivua Island Day Cruise or any of our Small Ship Cruises, where the atoll is the first stop. Our guests can enjoy a wide range of water sports here, including diving the new M.V. Raiyawa wreck, explore the gardens or simply relax on the beach.
