About the Yasawa Islands

Yasawa-IslandsGiven that the island nation of Fiji encompasses more than 300 islands, it should come as no surprise to learn that said landmasses can exhibit a remarkable range of characteristics, which also make them suitable for a remarkable range of travelers. For example, the Yasawa Islands are a collection of about 20 islands to the northwest of Viti Levu, which have become more and more popular in recent times with people interested in an experience that will prove to be both authentic and memorable.

For the most part, the Yasawa Islands have managed to earn their reputation because of their reduced level of commercialization compared to most of their counterparts. However, less commercialization is not the same as no commercialization whatsoever, which has resulted in an excellent balance between the beauties of nature and the conveniences of civilization. In a sense, the Yasawa Islands are a place where travelers can see the Fijian landscape in its most beautiful and unspoiled state while still retaining sufficient access to all of the tourism amenities needed to make their experience restful and relaxing in addition to being fun and exciting.

About the Resorts on the Yasawa Islands

Yasawa Island BeachOf course, none of this would be possible without the resorts that can be found on the Yasawa Islands, which have been increasing in number since the 1980s. Due to the reduced level of commercialization, said resorts tend to be situated at some remove from each other, which increases their sense of peaceful seclusion while also making it possible for them to put their own setups into practice. For example, some resorts (like Turtle Island Resort) consist of a small number of private buildings situated on private beaches whereas other resorts (like Castaway Island Resort) make efficient use of much more centralized facilities, thus making the resorts found on the Yasawa Islands capable of accommodating a wide range of travelers with a wide range of budgets, circumstances, and personal preferences.

From these resorts, travelers to the Yasawa Islands can engage in a range of nature-oriented activities. The bold and the adventurous might be interested in either hiking the inland or diving to see the wonders of Fijian waters up close and in person. In contrast, travelers interested in something more restful and relaxing can take their time on the beaches, participating in cultural activities, and then socializing with other travelers at night.

With that said, the Yasawa Islands’ state of relative isolation can make reaching some of the resorts more of a challenge than it should be when using boats. Fortunately, this is a problem with a simple solution in the form of Turtle Airways, which offer simple and straightforward transportation via seaplane.
