Comments Power at the resort was turned off from midnight to 0630, and for a few hours in mid afternoon. Bring mosquitoe lotion - Skin so Soft works just fine. Pretty beach at the resort. Meals were very good and are eaten either outside on the huge veranda, or inside the spacious main lodge family style. We stayed in a two bedroom beachfront bure with ceiling fans. There's a dive locker in front of each bure, where divers must stow their gear(including weights). Hot tea or coffee and cookies served on the beach between dives. Diving was wonderful! Two covered dive boats both with ladders, dunk tank for cameras, giant stride into the water. Joelie, the dive master checked our C-cards when we arrived. He led us on some great dives, pointing out, with a "Yippee", some Ghost Pipe Fish, sea snakes, Eagle Rays, bi-colored parrotfish, sharks, a blue ribbon eel. We saw Mantas, schools of barracuda, lionfish, incredible soft coral. Charming Figian people.
