Venua Levu

Page subtitle here

Vanua Levu is Fijis’s second largest island and is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Viti Levu. Most of the land is taken over by stunning mountain scenery, untamed forests, waterfalls and sugar cane plantations. The roads are mostly dirt tracks and the biggest city, Labasa, has little more than a street of shops as it’s centre. The main reason tourists come to Vanua Levu is to head to the South of the island where there are a number of resorts with access to the stunning Namena Marine Reserve.

The Namena Marine Reserve is a 2 hour boat trip away from Savusavu and is the jewel in Fiji’s diving crown. It encompasses the entire reef around Namena Island between Viti Levu and Vanua Levu and is a protected area from fishing since 1997. There is an incredible amount of biodiversity here with over 1000 species of invertebrates, over 1100 fish species and 400 known coral species. Namena is also a migratory pathway for whales and dolphins and the island is a seabird and snake nesting site!

The underwater world is thriving due to the protection from fishing here and you can see all manner of colourful coral reefs, large groups of schooling fish, sea snakes and reef sharks in excellent visibility.   

Vanua Levu has 2 airports, Labasa in the North (50mins from Nadi) or Savusavu in the South (1hr 10 from Nadi) with flights operating daily into both.

Getting around Fiji is fairly straightforward with Fiji Airways operating direct services to most of the islands, so if you are looking for a twin or triple centre diving holiday Fiji is an ideal place to visit.
