Kadavu is Fiji’s fourth-largest island. It’s renowned for being largely untouched (there are few roads) making it a drawcard for nature lovers. 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.
The Great Astrolabe Reef, one of the largest continuous reefs in the world, wraps from the northeast to the 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.

Additionally, it’s a good base to explore the mountainous hinterland of Vitu Levu.
Beqa Lagoon is one of the world’s most exceptional dive spots. The water is warm and visibility is great so you won’t miss the beautiful corals and schools of colourful fish.
