The heart-shaped island has an area of 29 acres and is close to the main Fijian island, Viti Levu. Tavarua, part of the Mamanuca islands, is home to perfect, white powder sand beaches, completely clear tropical waters, lush greenery and coral reefs. For such a tiny island there’s also a surprising amount of activity there, if you can drag yourself away from the beaches. Guests can the island can choose from surfing, scuba diving, sport fishing, snorkelling and kayaking. Shell hunting is also popular choice, and trips to the famous Cloudbreak (a surfing haven) or simply chilling in a sunny spot in your hammock are a must. However, the top choice has to be a Fijian massage. We’re serious, don’t even think about operating heavy machinery after one of those! As for cuisine, it might surprise you to learn that as well as seafood, the islands cuisine also includes some Indian dishes that were introduced to the island by Indian labourers. A popular dish is called Kokoda, which is similar to ceviche, consisting of raw fish marinated in lemon juice and coconut milk, sometimes accompanied by pepper onion and tomato. Of course there’ll be plenty of fresh tropical fruit on offer too.
Tavarua, with perfectly-formed beaches, warm climate and relaxing atmosphere make for the ultimate in romantic honeymoon holidays.
