Yasawa Islands

EXPLORE

A series of soaring peaks along a scattered archipelago, the Yasawa Islands are a testament to the natural beauty of Fiji.

Why Visit Yasawa Islands

Away from the glitz and glam of areas like Denarau Island, the Yasawa Islands are home to some of the most naturally beautiful spots in the country, if not the world. In amongst the verdant landscapes are a variety of accommodation options that seamlessly blend into this island paradise. Just a 30-minute seaplane flight from Nadi International Airport, the Yasawa Islands are suitable for a range of travellers from the budget-conscious backpacker to the luxury resort island-hopper.

Sights to See

While you might be tempted to spend your time sipping cocktails by your resort’s infinity pool, the real lure of the Yasawa Islands are the natural surrounds.
