Fiji’s Southern Splendor — Viti Levu and Kadavu

Fiji’s “mainland” is in reality its largest island of Viti Levu and home to the nation’s capital Suva.  From its stunning, curving coastline to the dramatic escarpment views which are a “Highlight of the Highlands”, there’s something for everyone on this large island.  The breatktaking Momi Bay and Natadola Harbour which both lie on Viti Levu’s southwest coast are considered be two of the most iconic visual delights of the island.  All the way north across the island is located the phenomenally photogenic traditional Fijian village of Navala, which completely contrasts with all that is modern in the resorts on the coast.  Head south of Viti Levu and you’ll happen upon Kadavu, Fiji’s fourth largest island which is enclosed within the Great Astrolabe Reef, a large barrier reef which also encompasses Ono, a smaller island which sits off the north east coast of Kadavu.

Approaching Navala which is widely regarded as showcasing one of Fiji’s premier traditional villagescapes, one could be forgiven to believe they had walked onto a movie set, where aesthetically set perfect rows of majestic bures rise dramatically above exquisitely manicured grounds.  With a similar idea in mind, Momi Bay features a cornucopia of reincarnated traditional Fijian bure dwellings in an ultra-modern setting.  Natadola Beach also highlights traditional Fijian architecture interpreted with a futuristic vibe.  Around sixty or so miles south of the “mainland”, Kadavu island features pristine, unspoilt rainforest, while a manta ray cleaning station is located on the northeast coast of Ono island.
