After getting off the transfer bus it was complete confusion at the check-in desk for the Yasama Flyer (the boat that would be taking me to islands). I was missing my ticket, which I expected to pick-up when I arrived. However there wasn't one ready as they'd been expecting me the previous day. That said, I was still allowed onto the boat, where everything could be sorted out.
I got onto the boat and settled in for the long four-hour journey to Nacula Island. The journey was eventful to say the least as the chopping seas made for a few green-looking people. Anyway, after plenty of Champ. Man. on the PSP the boat stopped at where we had to get off onto the smaller power boats that the resort provides to get you from the ocean to the island. It was now that I realised the resort I picked (recommendation by the woman at the travel desk at Nadi Bay) would be quite quiet as there was only two of us getting onto the little boat.
Once at the resort, I found out there there were only seven of us staying there and I had the whole dorm to myself. The other six that were staying there were staying in there own huts or Bures as the locals called them. Whilst I was looking for somewhere to chill, this was a bit too quiet for my liking. That afternoon I just found a hammock and caught up on a bit of lost sleep.
The food here was prepared in a traditional manner, e.g. in a hole in the ground and was probably the best I had on all of the islands. The meat, which was smoked, was really tasty, and the spicy gravy that went with it was very impressive also!
