Fiji’s unique Yasawas

Mysterious and magical, the Yasawa chain which winds slightly northeastwards of the Mamanucas are simply like no other — a unique confluence of the traditional, remote, and sensationally natural.  While they may appear on a map to be an extension of the Mamanuca Group, the proximity between the two Groups is where the similarities end.  While several of the Mamanuca islands are hardly rise above sea level, the islands of the Yasawas are high and mountainous, which simply by being so offer exceptional hiking opportunities all across the chain with a plethora of stunning 360⁰ vistas over the ink-blue Pacific and over to Fiji’s “mainland” of Viti Levu to the southeast.

One of the most stunning views in all of Fiji and even the Pacific is the striking sandbar which connects the islands of Waya and Wayasewa, especially visible at low tide.  These two brethren islands lie close to the southern edge of the Yasawa chain, while heading further north brings us to that one-and-only star which some would consider one of the Yasawa Group’s best-known attractions — the Blue Lagoon ringed by its supernaturally broad, blinding swathe of sand on Nanuya Lailai island.  A couple of islands away lies Sawa-i-Lau, a limestone island which in itself is a bit of an anomaly surrounded as it is by volcanic islands, and is the location of partly submerged caves within the interior of the island which are connected by an underwater passage.  Sawa-i-Lau is just off the southern coast of Yasawa Island, the largest in the Yasawa Group and home to sensational beaches.
