Diving the Yasawa Islands

A chain of 20 dramatic looking ancient volcanic islands called the Yasawa Islands can be seen north of Viti Levu, and stretching over 80 kilometers towards the east. Imagine relaxing in unspoiled islands with some of the most picturesque white sand beaches in Fiji. The underwater world is just as stunning as what you see above water. Prepare yourself to see a dramatic landscape that includes gullies, walls, caverns, and awesome swim-throughs. The Yasawas are a diver’s paradise for all levels of divers. Colorful shallow reef dives perfect for beginners can be found here, as well as deep-water dives close to shore for the more experienced where you can find large pelagics that come in for a visit. One of the most sought-after activities in the Yasawa Islands is shark snorkeling near Kuata and the Waya islands. If you are looking for adventure you can also head south of the Naviti Island to swim with manta rays. You will find over 20 resorts in the area for every type of budget, ranging from budget friendly eco-resorts to all-inclusive luxury resorts. Take a short 30-minute seaplane ride from Nadi to arrive, or go on a longer ride on ferry that makes multiple stops, this will take you from 2 to 5 hours.
