Fiji is a diving mecca. An underwater world that is unadulterated, beautifully intact and teeming with life. With over 1,200 species of fish to admire, and a colourful display of both soft and hard corals, divers are spoilt by the sheer diversity of sea life on offer.
The more undeveloped and rugged sibling to Viti Levu, Fiji’s second largest island of Vanua Levu boasts a plethora of natural beauty that has as of yet remained mostly untouched by tourism. Reminiscent of Hawaii half a century ago, Vanua Levu is the perfect spot for more adventurous spirits or those simply seeking some pristine Fijian beauty.

There’s no denying Fiji can easily be considered one of the best diving spots in the world. Its warm, crystal-clear waters feature one of the world’s densest populations of underwater marine life (including colourful fish, turtles, sharks, eels and manta rays). It has channels that connect lagoons to the ocean and pristine coral structures.
