DAY 5, FIJI
Probably the nicest resort of them all, Blue Lagoon is one of the furthest from the mainland. Paying a slight premium comes with the privilege of staying at one of the nicest islands in the Yasawa Islands.
THE NICEST RESORT BY FAR
WHERE IS BLUE LAGOON?
We paid an additional £30, which to be honest in nothing for what is currently in front of me. Add that to how quiet it is as not many people fancied taking the 4hour ferry up to it. There is a Padi dive centre, tribal village excursions and Fijian dinner dances around the pool each night were there’s a BBQ. Like most of the islands the staff from Blue Lagoon take part in a welcome dance to greet you coming off the boat, a good way to set the chilled vibe for your stay.
DID YOU KNOW….?
- Fiji gained indépendance in 1970
- The capital of Fiji is Suva, on the island of Viti Levu
- Fiji’s population is 900,000
It was recommended by everyone I had met, none more do than Nathania from the Kiwi Bus. Its certainly more of a couples place but good that they still accommodate backpackers with dorms. Two Swedish guys from Octopus Resort are here also, they are working for the European Bartender School or something and are heading to the Phuket to teach it – you can study absolutely everything!
The snorkelling here is insane and just seems to get better and better. The fish aren’t afraid to get up right and close and if anything appear curious of humans jumping in and looking at fish.
Heading back down the coast towards the mainland with a stop at Barefoot Manta. Click to read.
