A beautiful chain of islands amongst Fiji’s 333, the Mamanucas have numerous resorts that deliver fun and frolic for families, privacy and seclusion for couples besides endless water sports for both. With family friendly resorts like the Mana Island Resort, Castaway and Plantation Island; and adults-only havens like the Tropica Island Resort, there is no end to the number of options.
Call our South Pacific Specialists and Hideaway Holidays will guide you to some of the best adults-only resorts in the world. From private island escapes to candle-lit dinners under the stars, everything romantic becomes possible in the Mamanucas.
The Mamanucas have always been a favourite haunt of luxury superyachts, dive-liveaboards, catamarans and tall ships as its islands make for perfect cruising waters. Long, uninhabited beaches, great diving and cool Pacific winds make for an unbeatable combination. Fill out the enquiry form and let our Specialists come up with a roster of available cruise charters perfect for your holiday requirements.
The Mamanucas are a fabulous group of 20 volcanic islands with around 7 of them under water at high tide. Some are tiny, others not so tiny, scattered hither and thither amongst exotic, clear, clean reefs that are home to pelagic and reef fish attracted by nutrients swept in by strong currents.
These islands will offer you more sun than you can probably cope with, one of the reasons why they were selected to host the reality shows, ”The Resort” and “Treasure Island” plus enough activities that will have you looking for a holiday to get over the holiday. In the early days of tourism, and still today, this group was famous for catering to day trippers.
The Mamanucas were the trailblazer in resort tourism in Fiji and it’s not hard to work out why. Relatively close to the mainland and Nadi international airport, and closer now that they are serviced by high-speed catamarans, the great tropical weather combined with all the fabulous bounty that nature has endowed on them, makes for a ‘perfect holiday in a tropical paradise theme’. The Mamanucas are picture post card stuff with no touch-ups. What you see is what you get!
Fijian legends talk of a box filled with goodness, prosperity and luck being lost in the depths of Mamanuca Islands. Till date, the box, or ‘Katonimana’ has been spreading it’s magic all over the group of islands. Maybe that’s why there’s always a little bit of magic hanging in the air here.
Also, that’s why the Mamanucas are ridiculously pretty. Blessed with glassy blue waters and live coral reefs, travellers can traipse across isles such as Treasure island, Beachcomber, Namotu, Malolo and Castaway Islands (because the movie was shot there) to discover hidden beaches and unbelievably pretty dive spots.
Go scuba diving with the shoals of colourful fishes or snorkel your way to happiness. For couple and group activities, try kayaking or visit the nearby villages to learn about cultures, traditions and tribal music passed down from generations. And for those with adventure in their veins, the Mamanucas offer a great opportunity for windsurfing, kiteboarding and diving with reef sharks to get that thrill of a lifetime. Come lovers, come families, come backpackers, party animals, divers, surfers, day trippers, come one, come all.
