Located roughly 100km/62miles south of Viti Levu, Kadavu is Fiji’s fourth largest island.
This irregularly shaped island has few roads. You arrive at Vunisea airfield and from there virtually all transportation is by boat.
The island is great for nature lovers and those wishing to pursue more adventure (diving, surfing and kayaking) and a look at traditional Fijian lifestyle and culture.
The Great Astrolabe Reef, one of the largest continuous reefs in the world, wraps from the northeast to southern side of the island. Having maintained its strong cultural values the general population leads fairly subsistent lifestyles in sleepy coastal villages dwarfed by mountainous jungles and waterfalls plummeting from the hilltops.
The islands deeply indented bays, fringed by coral reefs and mangrove forest provide habitat to a host of birds including the endemic Kadavu musk parrot. Forest openings reveal lizards basking on rocks, and butterflies spiraling skyward in a lazy dance.
