I am a solo traveller and decided to stay at Waisalima Beach Resort & Dive Centre on my recent stay in Fiji.
Had an excellent time. Great food, great staff and excellent snorkelling. I'm not a diver so just stayed in the shallows mainly but the Great Astrolabe Reef is fantastic.
Some of the most unspoiled reefs I've ever seen and there are fish everywhere!
Although the accommodation is quite basic, the food was excellent, the staff were friendly and if you're looking for a quiet place to relax and get away from it all then this is the place to do it.
The beach is nice though its only visible at low-tide since its a tidal area though the traditional bure I stayed in was right next to the beach.
Very relaxing and overall enjoyable. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a quiet getaway.

... of flip cup with beer. Smashed it. We were a little held back by some older women that didn’t know what was going on. Two women were like, “WE’RE WITH TWO PEOPLE WITH CELIAC’S DISEASE, THEY CAN’T DRINK BEER!”… Jacqui the bartender was like, “ma’am, it’s a game… you don’t have to drink the beer.”

... on the beach, we checked with others emerging from the water, and determined the best snorkeling spots. This was a far different type of reef than any we'd experienced previously, with an initial white sand bottom giving way quickly to sea grass, then rock and suddenly, coral outcroppings of all shapes and types, awash in every variety of fish. It was possible to just float a foot or two above the coral and marvel at all the different colors and types of coral, ...
... ever. The visibility is crystal and vast coral canyons and mountains are like piles and piles of colourful cupcakes at a baby shower. The reef is teeming with fish, but they are simply a decoration on the incredible back drop and are so numerous that you almost don't see them. I've seen sharks pop up through the crevices between coral chased up by the divers and I've frightened turtles bobbing on the reef top down to see them in return.
The dive boat feels like a ...
... Craig baked them in coconut milk and spices and shared with Cy and his wife on the boat. We left the next morning as the weather was set to be windy and rainy and we headed for a more protected anchorage.
We sat out the blow with two other boats, one of which we spent the next month cruising and diving with. It was nice to be traveling with another boat again and they love the water and diving as much as we do. When the winds ...
I've just come back from Fiji & had a wonderful time there. I caught the cheap local buses from Nadi along the Coral Coast, stopping at various places along the way, which was marvellous & then journeyed onto Suva for a few days.
There are some nice aspects to Suva, but it was hard to find anything to buy as it was fairly expensive. I did buy a few sarongs but avoided the markets as the storekeepers were quite pushy.
I had a few people come up to me with their hard luck/ ...
