Comments Second trip there, nice remodeling job - especially bathrooms
Extremely pretty location - lots of fruit bats in trees to liven things up especially around sunset.
Food sometimes fabulous but always good - tales also of good Indian restaurant up the street, but didn't have time to go.
It's a work-in-progress, but some of the dive and hotel staff remembered us from 5 years ago, even though Aqua Trek has moved on. The Fijians are super nice people!
180 degree Meridian a short walk away - Taveuni gorgeous island
Great White Wall rather spectacular - hard to photo, but pretty.
Octopus activity during the day
Surface interval beach on Vanua Levu pretty spot (Christmas Tree Worms, Tridacna Clams, Sea snakes - all in the shallows.)
Also did Fiji Aggressor II - nice trip! Will go again!
