Depending on your flight arrival time, you can take the 8:30am, 9:00am or 12:15pm departure to the island. Perhaps an afternoon on the beach?
Day 4 & 5
Time to head for the Yasawas with a short vessel transfer on the ‘Yasawa Flyer’ to the southern end of the Yasawas where the islands are dominated by stunning monolithic mountains. There is a great range of activities and awesome beaches for topping up the tan and tranquillity levels!
Day 6 & 7
Today you'll be faced with even more beautiful beaches, friendly Fijians and relaxation as you take the Yasawa Flyer further north, up into the islands of Drawaqa and Naviti. These islands are pure bliss and if you are visiting between May and October, you’ll have the chance to swim with graceful manta rays!
Day 8 & 9
If you thought you'd seen Fiji as beautiful as it could get, think again! Today you will head up into Fiji's stunning Blue Lagoon region in the northern Yasawa Islands. Enjoy island walks, magnificent beaches and coral. Hit the beach at sunset, cocktail in hand and watch for flying fish!
You'll have the morning for relaxing, snorkelling, kayaking - doing what you please for your last day in the Yasawas. You'll then board the Flyer for the scenic cruise back down through the spectacular Yasawa Islands and then through the tiny Mamanucas. It's a view to remember as you make your way back to Denarau Marina.
Say goodbye to Fiji as you're taken to the airport for your departure.
Full Monty Featured Activities
These are the 'must-do' activities in Fiji. This upgrade option includes all the following activities:
To make it easy and guarantee a place for you on these great activities we have negotiated special prices and included them under the ‘FULL MONTY’ – your chosen package PLUS all the nominated activities or upgrades. The Full Monty activities are described day by day in the packages.
SEASPRAY DAY SAILING ADVENTURE
A special day aboard ‘Seaspray’ sailing amongst the outer Mamanuca Islands. Enjoy the crystal clear waters for snorkelling and swimming, a traditional Fijian village visit and Kava ceremony (except Sunday). Visit the island featured in the Tom Hanks movie ‘Cast Away’. All booze, morning/afternoon tea and a barbecue lunch is included. It’s a stunner.
SAWAILAU CAVES TRIP
The boat trip up to the caves is worth doing for its own sake but then there’s the magical experience of the caves themselves. No diving is required to enter the main cavern as it’s just a few easy steps. We recommend you take the option to enter the secondary cavern where you need to swim through an underwater tunnel. See your resort for details.
REEF SNORKELLING / SWIM WITH THE SHARKS (OR NOT!) TRIP
Moua Reef is only a short boat ride from the white sandy beaches of Kuata and Waya Lailai Islands. A spectacular site from above and below the water with an abundance of colourful fish and beautiful corals. This outer reef is also home to some “friendly” Reef Sharks that you can snorkel with – gets the adrenalin pumping but they eat fish not people so no need to worry! Your local guides hand feed the sharks creating awesome underwater photo opportunities.
FIJIAN COOKING SCHOOL
Learn how to cook some traditional Fijian dishes by actually preparing the meal yourself and then of course the best part - getting to eat it along with your fellow chefs!
FIJIAN VILLAGE VISIT
Life in the Yasawas is village based. All Fijians are strongly rooted to their culture, land and their mataqali (family). You cannot however just wander into a village and must be accompanied by a person from there. Being able to visit one of these villages is a special experience sharing and learning about this different world to that of modern city life. Your guide will teach you basic protocols and accompany you around the village. It is a very relaxed tour and you’ll be able to wander freely, meeting the villagers and children as they go about their daily life. The Ratu (or Chief) may even welcome you.
GUIDED SUMMIT WALK TO AMAZING ISLAND
PEAKS One of the more strenuous excursions on offer but definitely worth it. The southern Yasawas boasts rugged volcanic peaks with summits providing magnificent views over the surrounding islands and ocean. The best time to be there is sunrise or sunset (it’s also cooler for the climb!).
GUIDED KAYAKING TRIP
A number of the islands offer guided kayaking trips which venture away from the resort, ensuring you experience the very best spots. The guide knows the best route to take, the best snorkelling spots over a reef, the loveliest beaches and be able to tell you of life in the Yasawas as you go.
SWIM WITH THE MANTA RAYS (May to October)
One of the most amazing experiences the natural world has to offer. These magnificent, majestic creatures come to this particular channel between two islands each day on the change of tide to feed. No photograph will prepare you for that first sighting of them. The mantas don’t seem to mind swimmers so there’s a good chance your encounter will be a lengthy one as they turn and glide in the waters beneath you, huge mouths open as they feed on the plankton.
SUNSET TUBE CRUISE
A bit of fun under the sun! Chill out, cool drink in hand and mates floating around you as you get pulled through the water and watch the sunset. What a great way to end the day in Fiji!
Now this is a must! You’re in Fiji in relaxation-mode so you just have to treat yourself to a luxurious island massage and relax that little bit more.
HAND-LINE FISHING TRIP
This fun trip is a great way to chat with the locals and meet other villagers out in their boats. The trip is more about the experience of throwing over a hand-line, laughing and joking with your crew and admiring the view than actually catching a fish. If you do, it’s a bonus! All guests choosing the Full Monty option of their package get an Awesome Adventures Fiji
