If I ever see Vonu at a bottle shop, I’ll pick up a six pack. It’s a delicious beer.
Esther opted for the sea plane and it was an absolute blast. Once the sea plane (finally) arrived to pick us up, the fun part of vacay started.
One of the best parts about the island was the proximity of the other small islands around it, which meant there weren’t many ocean waves. Just calm water perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
The weather was a little off-and-on while we were there.
But the food at our resort was OUTSTANDING. Lots of reef fish, lobster, steak, and chicken. We had a “banafie” pie (banana & toffee) that was probably our favourite dessert.
Is “yac” a word? Hrmmmmmmm… IDK Esther.
If you want to step it up to a 5-star resort, Turtle Island Resort was on the island adjacent to us. It’s about FJ$2,000 a night to stay there, but it’s all inclusive and apparently very luxurious.
The final thing to keep in mind when taking a trip to Fiji, all prices on the island are in Fijian dollars. So fancy beach cocktails were about $12 and dinner main courses were about $30-$40 dollars… but that’s all in Fijian. The Australian exchange rate (when we visited) was $1.80 so really, you’re looking at just under 50% of the cost that an Australian vacation would cost. Outstanding value!
I hope to visit Fiji again when we have a couple of weeks to really unwind and island hop a more. It’s a place I will never forget.
