About the Yasawa Islands

The Yasawa Islands fulfil the South Pacific holiday dream – spectacular volcanic peaks, palm fringed beaches, coral gardens, aqua-marine lagoons, mythical caves and traditional villages living from the bounty of the sea
Over 20 islands are situated in an 80km chain off the north-west coast of the main island of Viti Levu and the islands are separated by spectacular cruising passages. The whole island chain is a cruising paradise with a new island, lagoon, reef or headland to explore every morning and afternoon.

Because of their remote location, the waters are crystal clear and warm, the marine life prolific and the palm fringed beaches long, unspoilt and mostly deserted.

Village life in the islands is very traditional and there are many customs to be honoured. Visitors should be aware Fijians are very modest. Knees and shoulders should be covered, hats removed and religious practices respected whenever visiting a traditional village.

Accommodation in the Yasawa Islands ranges from five star luxury resorts where international film stars play, to home-stay style villages. A fun and cheap alternative to commercial resorts is the Barefoot Lodge. Situated on the southern end of Drawaqa Island the lodge offers a great way to experience village living. The accommodation is simple twin share village-style bures – basic with absolutely stunning views. Only a few steps from your bure and hammock you’ll find one of the Yasawa Islands most spectacular lagoons where giant gentle manta rays can be found. Meals and showers are communal, and only visitors and staff stay at the lodge, so the customs are relaxed and carefree

Captain Cook Cruises operates a 3 day cruise through the Southern Yasawa Islands, a 4 day cruise to the Northern Yasawa Islands and a 7 day cruise which combines the 3 and 4 day cruises and provides guests with the full tour. Relax on the luxurious small cruise ship, the M.V. Reef Endeavour as you meander through spectacular scenery with twice daily stop-offs to explore the local area.
