    Destination Information

    Kadavu

    Take the path less travelled, get off the beaten track, and immerse yourself in the authentic Fijian way of life in Kadavu. A tiny town with very few roads, the communities in the surrounding area are relatively isolated, lead somewhat subsistence lifestyles, and preserve strong cultural values.

    Exploring Kadavu can be challenging, but it has some astounding rewards. Trekking through the luxurious rainforest, joining a sea-kayaking tour, and birdwatching are among some of the most popular activities on the island. 

    However, perhaps the most impressive drawcard is the Great Astrolabe Reef. Reef systems here are healthy due to seclusion from the mainland and less pressure from people. Subsequently, this reef is home to a variety of stunning marine life living amongst the colourful coral gardens.
