Although situated on the beautiful south coast of Vanua Levu, the second largest of Fiji’s 333 magnificent islands, Savusavu is a remote, hidden away paradise. Unlike some well-trodden Fijian destinations, this wonderfully picturesque town isn’t on the regular tourist trail, so its natural treasures and forested, mountainous landscapes remain largely untouched, and its sleepy streets retain their authentic charms.
Most visitors to Savusavu come to escape the crowds and the bustle of Fiji’s busier holiday resorts. Time here affords opportunities to relax and enjoy the glorious sunshine at the breathtaking beach; experience some of the world’s best snorkelling and scuba diving in warm, teal waters teeming with exotic fish and coral reefs; while away a few hours at the volcanic hot springs; explore tropical gardens overlooking the spectacular bay; and much more.
A wander into town is rewarding too however, with a collection of cosmopolitan restaurants serving an eclectic mix of Fijian and Asian-influenced cuisine, welcoming bars, shops run by friendly locals, and a busy market – each offering an authentic taste of life here – to discover too.
