... 1.20 pm so we were way behind schedule. It was certainly a faster bus trip back to Suva. We were dropped off in the CBD area of Suva where Ros found the perfume she’s been looking for (Cacharel N’OA) so we struck a good deal $wise for that. Bruce got a new Bula shirt at a little shop where we were asked where we came from by a couple from Auckland (their son owns the shop and they were helping out!).
Everyone had to be back on board by 4.30pm and ...
... 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 ...
The staff of Coral View sing farewell to us with music and singing. Then onto the Flyer to our next resort Korovou, an eco resort which we found means that we only have power from sunset to bar closure and no hot water. However we had a beautiful fresh water pool and a long sandy beach. A much nicer Bure, more solidly built with a comfortable 4 poster bed and our own balcony overlooking the sea.A nice meal and lively entertainment ...
... of money stories & after parting with a small amout of $ I soon tired of them. Didn't mean to be mean, but I had to watch my money & safety.
After the hectic pace of Suva, I needed a value for money place to stay on one of the outer islands. I chose Kadavu, as I had heard good reports from people who had been there. I flew there & looked up Reece's Place in the Lonely Planet but it had closed down. I couldn't ring from Suva as the line was really bad, so I had ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsWaisalima Beach Resort & Dive Centre Kadavu Island
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.
