Mamanuca Islands

The glorious Mamanuca Islands are picture-postcard Fiji. These are the islands of eternal sunshine, pristine beaches and coconut palms.

Lazing about in the sun is one of the best ways to enjoy the Mamanuca’s and they offer plenty of opportunities from the tiny, uninhabited Monuriki which featured in the movie Cast Away, to Bounty Island where Survivor: Fiji was filmed.

There are plenty of activities to partake in around the islands and snorkelling would have to be one of the most endearing, with fantastic opportunities to view Neptune’s world. There are also some excellent dive sites, especially Gotham City and the Supermarket. If you’re a surfer there are some good breaks around the southern islands.

If you’re keen on calmer activities then the islands of Tokoriki and Navini offer great walks, good native birdwatching and decent game fishing.

Practical Info

The Mamanuca Island’s are easily accessible by light plane which takes 15 mins from Nadi or by many of the boats and catamarans that travel between Nadi and the islands.  There are also plenty of tours that travel around the islands giving you the chance to get away from the madding crowd.
