Spend a day around Natewa Bay

Sign up for a day-tour where you’ll snorkel, kayak, visit a village and sample some true island entertainment! The Natewa Bay is a striking piece of paradise, just half an hour’s boat ride away. It’s South Pacific’s deepest and the largest natural bay, teeming with spinner dolphins, eagle rays, lemon sharks, shoals of multi-hued fishes and marine life. Here, you can snorkel and dive to your heart’s content in the crystal-clear waters, or kayak around to explore the bay’s beautiful land/seascape. When you’ve had enough, the boat tender will take you to the nearby Leya village. You’ll be welcomed, treated to a traditional kava ceremony, an island-style earthen oven luncheon, and some great song and dance performances. All in all, it’s a brilliant way to spend a day.

Waterfall Hike Tour near Vuodomo Village

This tour leads travellers deep into the island’s sub-tropical forests. From the resort, the Vuadomo village is around 40 minutes’ drive away. The tour starts with driving into the island’s lush jungles, then Vuadomo village’s headman greets the travellers via a spokesperson. There is the ceremonial sevusevu, a traditional presentation of offerings to the headman for permission to visit the village’s forests and waterfall. The tour also goes through the village’s orchards and plantations of wild ginger, banana and passionfruit trees. It’s a great hike through the forest, and the waterfall is just amazing. Just remember to take a spare set of clothes, walking boots and water.

Salt Lake Kayaking along Qaloqalo River

The island of Savusavu has great tours just built into the geological features. For example, the island is split by the Qaloqalo River (well, technically it’s just a stream) which connect the sea to a huge saltwater lake. From the island’s edge, the river is bordered on both sides by lush mangrove forests. Travellers kayak their way to the lake in a leisurely two-and-a-half-hour paddling session. When the views change from the interior of the island to the forests to the open sea, it’s an unforgettable experience.
