Travel Blogs from Kadavu Island
This was my second trip to Kadavu Island and I stayed at Waisalima Beach Resort & Dive Centre again.
On arrival at Vunisea its like stepping into Sleepy Hollow and you can feel that you're on "Fiji Time"!
My boatman, Tulala, was waiting at the airport for me when I arrived, helped me with my bags and we boarded the boat for …
... round to Perth)
30 Jan - Singapore (Long weekend stop over)
03 Feb - Philippines (Various Islands including Palawan)
01 Mar - Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh up to Hanoi)
25 Mar - Thailand (Bangkok, Chiang Mai and some island hopping)
24 Apr - Hong Kong (Long weekend before flying home)
... so small you could walk it in 20 mins,it was just beach sea and greenery. The only way off the island was by boat and the electric went off at 12.00am so going to the outside loo was always a bit scary.
We had an amazing time on Robinson Crusoe Island, its just beautiful and the Fijians made us feel so welcome.
Fiji's promise of water sports and other activities did not disappoint.
We were there with Helen and Ed, and my Kiwi cousins: Alex, Thomas, Madeleine and Hannah- was great to see the Crook crew again!
A personal highlight for myself was a 1 hour scuba dive around Fiji's colourful reef, including a sighting of a turtle! Only the second time I've been diving but I can safely say the best dive of my life!
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 ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
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.
