Getting To Paradise Cove
Paradise Cove resort in Fiji is in the Yasawa Group of islands off the west coast of Viti Levu. Poor to the 1950’s, these islands were a popular cruise ship destination even though the Fijian government did not allow the guests to actually step foot on the islands. Between the 1950’s and late 1980’s, land based tourism was heavily restricted. Since then, several eco-friendly boutique resorts have sprung up to dot the islands. These resorts are mostly owned and operated by local Fijians eager to maintain the islands unique ecosystem and leave their islands free from the type of massive build up that is all to common in other south pacific tourist destinations. If you want to experience an eco-friendly vacation and see how Fiji has really looked for thousands of years, the Yasawa Islands are the place to go.
However, you can’t just drive from the international airport in Nadi out to the Yasawa islands. Many people choose to take a boat trip that can take around 5 hours. It leaves every morning from Nadi, so if your flight into Nadi isn’t early enough, you may need to book a night in Nadi.
