Nacula

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Nacula is one of the most northern Yasawa Islands and is arguably home to some of the most beautiful beaches on earth. The sand is white and the water is crystal clear. This place is as near to paradise as one can find.

Get in[edit]

Awesome Adventures Fiji provide the Yasawa Flyer as the primary transport to and through the Yasawa Islands from Nadi. If you are transferring from within the Yasawas, a local water taxi may be a cheaper option in good weather, however be prepared for it to take a lot longer and possibly running out of fuel! Awesome Adventures have an office in the main street where you can book the Yasawa Flyer and the boat departs Denarau at 8:30am daily.

Get around[edit]

Walking is the only method of transport whilst on the island.

Do[edit][add listing]

Beyond snorkelling and enjoying the beautiful water a range of activities are available either independently or often organised by a resort. These include: hikes across and around the island, village visits, blue lagoon trips, fishing trips, volleyball and craftwork. As with most resorts throughout the Yasawas, they also usually organise some sort of evening activities/entertainment.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Eat[edit][add listing]

Eating is restricted to the resorts on the island. However on the beach just down from Nabua Lodge you were able to get cake and hot drinks every afternoon. The flavour of cake varied from day to day and were baked daily by the two women from the local village who ran the cafe. Several basic benches and tables overlooked the ocean.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Water, soft drinks, beer and mixed spirits are available at the resorts. Bottled water is best in the Yasawa Islands and there are palm trees where coconuts are available.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

Nabua Lodge is one of 4 resorts on the Island. Being owned and managed by Fijians it had the most 'Fijian' laid back atmosphere of the resorts that we visited. The bungalows at the time could've done with some maintenance but you overlooked arguably one of the best beaches on the island and at half the price of the other resorts, Nabua Lodge was great value. The staff were very friendly and were happy to organise a variety of activities such as trips to the Blue Lagoon, village visits and fishing trips. The food was unpredictable, the bbq was great but sometimes the food combinations were a little perplexing (sausages and noodles for example) but when we asked for a traditional Fijian breakfast it was great. There are several walking tracks on the island so you get some very panoramic views of the island and the Yasawas as well as being able to walk to other resorts (30-60 minutes).

Other resorts on the island are: Oarsmans Bay Lodge (beautiful beach, relaxed resort, white sand and turquoise waters), Blue Lagoon Beach Resort (pure white sand, blue waters and a bit up-market), and Safe Landing Resort.

Contact[edit]

Awesome Adventures Fiji offer a range of popular multi-day packages exploring the Yasawas and Mamanucas. These Fiji packages range from a few days to a few weeks and include accommodation at a range of island resorts, transfers on the flyer, meals (in most cases), and activities.
