Beautiful place but staff does not care about you. Not sure if they didn't care about is because we were here for the day but we definitely didn't receive any love. Go to South Sea Island instead. You will love it.

You must go out on the boat and visit the island where Tom Hanks filmed Castaway. It’s beautiful and the snorkeling is good there as well. You can collect shells as you walk the island, it’s just amazing!

Booked the day trip excursion through South Seas Cruises. Was unaware that the large catamaran actually operates as an on/off transport to all outer island resorts for vacationers and locals. The stated 1.5 hr trip from Denarau actually took approx 3 hours from marina to...More

Did you go see the surfers and if so may I ask did you also get to swim in the waves at a nearby island and or snorkel after? Which company did you go with and would you recommend them? Thanks!
