After living in NZ for a year it was time to move on, the visa had run out so on to a new country, on my way to Hawaii I decided to first stop in Fiji for nearly 3 weeks. I had seen pictures before and it looked beautiful so it was a place I had to visit. I flew from Auckland to Nadi where I stayed in a hostel for 1 night before getting picked up and taken to Port Deanarau to start my 12 day trip around the Yasawa Islands with Awesome Adventures Fiji.
My first stop was South Sea Island for 2 nights. It is one of the most beautiful islands I have been to, it’s very small takes maybe 5-10 minutes to walk around, there is a dorm room for people to stay overnight and even a swimming pool!! During the day there are visitors from other islands but you can still easily find a quiet spot and relax. When I arrived, I was welcomed with a song from the staff, everyone made me feel very welcome.
That afternoon I decided to take a trip on the semi submersible to see the fishes on the coral reef around the island. After that I watched a traditional Meke performance before finding a sun lounger and relaxing for the afternoon.
That evening I watched sunset on the beach while we were sat down having dinner. I was staying on an island with a dorm room and eating dinner on a table on the beach, was unbelievable, such an amazing night.
The next day I was doing the Seaspray Day Sailing Adventure to Modriki Island where Tom Hank’s film “Castaway” was filmed. This island is amazing, so beautiful, there were hardly any tourists and we got plenty of time to snorkel. It was an amazing day out, the water was so clear, only a small part of the Island is accessible so it didn’t take long to explore and then it was time for relaxing on the beach.
After the beach we all got back on the boat for an amazing lunch, so much good food to eat. We were then had a Kava Ceremony on the boat and we all got to try Fiji’s national drink. It looked a bit like dirty dishwater but it would be rude not to have a shot!! It was a great day and I had so much fun.
After changing to the little boat to take us back to South Sea Island, I got a chance to drive/pilot the boat around the island, it was great fun, I wasn’t the best at going in a straight line but I didn’t sink it, which was a bonus!! It was then another night watching the sunset and dinner on the beach. Of all the Islands in Fiji this was my first one but it still ended up being my favourite and if I ever return to Fiji I will be back there without a doubt.
