A vacation is usually an excellent way to get away from your stress and troubles for a while and just enjoy yourself. For many of us, the best way to do that is with an island vacation. Unfortunately, that means that a lot of the most popular island vacation destinations are overcrowded and commercialized. If you are someone who is looking for a more secluded spot, it is important to try to find the best off the beaten track island vacation.

Fiji’s Yasawa Islands

Best Off The Beaten Track Island VacationAbout 50 miles off the coast of Fiji’s big island of Viti Levu, you will find the Yasawa island chain. These islands only began to allow land-based tourism after the late 1980s. As a result, the Yasawa islands have remained purer than most tropical island destinations. You won’t find large corporate resorts out here. Instead, you will see that these pristine islands are dotted with small, boutique resorts that are locally owned and sustainable.

The local Fijian people that run these resorts take special care to keep the resorts harmonious with nature. As you would expect because this is their ancestral home. When you arrive at a Yasawa island resort, you instantly feel like you have been transported to another world far from your stress and troubles.

Something for Every Budget

I understand how many of you may be thinking that a tropical island getaway may not fit your budget, but it isn’t so. The resorts in the Yasawa island chain range in price from budget-friendly “backpacker” resorts to the ultra luxurious all-inclusive resorts. Whatever your budget, you are sure to find the best off the beaten track resort for you in the Yasawa islands.
