Tailor-made Vanua Levu Beach Holidays

Tropical Beauty & South Seas Paradise

A sparkling gem dropped onto the Pacific Ocean's blue velvet: Welcome to Fiji Island's beautiful Vanua Levu. Famous for its lush, tropical vegetation and quiet setting, Vanua Levu is just right for nature enthusiasts and those in search of a pristine hideaway. In former times, fragrant sandalwood was produced on Vanua Levu, having earned the island its unofficial name Sandalwood -Island. Five and a half square kilometres large, Vanua Levu is the second largest Fiji island. Close to 130.000 inhabitance enjoy life on the triangular island that is located about 70 kilometres north of the main island Viti Levu. The largest city is the vibrant and cheerful Labasa. Right on the other side of Viti Levu lies Savusavu that is every bit as charming but far more quiet. Savoir-vivre is the unofficial motto – the clocks run slower, the smiles are wider. Every Saturday is market day. Savour the rich smells and exotic sights. The products for sale also include local arts and crafts but the focus certainly lies on tropical fruit, fresh fish and healthy vegetables. We recommend visiting both cities, discovering the island along the way. There are many ways to get around. Hop on one of the local buses or get a rental car. Another, surprisingly cheap, option is hiring a taxi for the day. And the physically fit may do a fair bit of exploring with a bicycle. A taxi for the day certainly has the advantage that your friendly driver may take you to hidden treasures and tucked-away sights and sites. It is not uncommon that the natural friendliness even moves your driver to take you to his home town. Accept the invitation and experience the famed and fabled Fijian hospitality. The small stores and the markets are the best places to pick up the one or other souvenir or gift for your loved ones at home. The merchants will often have trouble with changing large bank notes so remember to bring some smaller denominations. In past years, Vanua Levu was also known as the Hidden Paradise. A favourite hideaway for sailors and globetrotters. Today, tourism greatly contributes to the island's income. Other substantial businesses are the production of sugar and copra. Translated from the local dialect, copra means “dried coconut”. First the coconuts are peeled and split. After careful drying, the coconut fibres are used as a filling for mattresses. Having cooled off again, the fruit flesh is easily separated from the shell. The empty and cleaned shells are then often recycled to make souvenirs or everyday objects whereas the copra, the dried fruit is either pressed to produce coconut oil or ground. Half of the island's natural beauty is found in the water: The vibrant and colourful coral reefs that line Vanua Levu are home to a fascinating marine diversity. It is no coincidence that the island is steadily building a great reputation with diving enthusiasts from all over the world. And on a different day, why not join one of the experienced local fishermen. Armed with hook, line and sinker, try to pull a tasty dinner from the ocean's unfathomable depths. Allow INTOSOL to introduce you to the heart-warming charm and great natural beauty of Vanua Levu and discover the secrets of the green island in the heart of the Pacific Ocean!
