It has white gold sand and sky-blue water. The abundance of beautiful shallow sand around this reef means the visibility perfect for snorkeling. You are likely to see schooling fish, rays, eels, turtles and friendly reef sharks. This trip is unique because the island appears only for a few hours a day and then disappears.
Day 6: You have today at leisure. If you haven’t already take in some live Fijian entertainment tonight. Every night you are lured further into paradise with traditional dance performances or songs given with genuine heartfelt enthusiasm. Most nights the Beqa Bula Band are strumming on their guitars with their gifted voices filling the warm night air with their beautiful song, serenading you through dinner or while you enjoy a nightcap watching the moonlight dance on the water.
Day 7: You have today at leisure to relax, explore or enjoy island activities such as a coconut show, Fijian cooking show, learn Fijian mat weaving and more to pick from depending on what you feel like doing.
