Things to do in the Kadavu Islands
The Kadavu Islands are a haven for nature lovers.
Located roughly 100km / 62miles south of Viti Levu, Kadavu is Fiji’s fourth largest island. This irregularly shaped island has few roads so when you arrive at Vunisea airfield all transportation thereafter is by boat.
The island’s 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 spiralling skyward in a lazy dance.
There are great waterfalls on the southern side of Kadavu Island in Kadavu village.
The Great Astrolabe Reef
The Great Astrolabe Reef, one of the largest continuous reefs in the world, wraps from the northeast to the southern side of Kadavu Island, and is renowned as one of the best dive sites in the world.
Here you’ll discover the reef’s spectacle of colours, diversity of marine life and wondrous coral gardens and structures.
The more adventurous traveller need only venture a little further to encounter turtles, swim with manta rays and admire the majesty of whales, during the season.
North Astrolabe Lagoon
The North Astrolabe Lagoon offers close proximity to some excellent diving.
This barrier reef is the perfect example of Fiji’s amazing soft corals and your likely to see large pelagic species, schooling barracudas and turtles. Hosting many dive sites, the reef is one of the places where manta ray encounters are common. Divers can explore numerous channels and passages while viewing pristine coral formations teeming with tropical fish.
There is about 25 nm of open water from NE Beqa to Usbourne Passage before you enter into the lee of the Kadavu reefs and the entrance into the North Astrolable Lagoon.
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.
