Itinerary

Day 1: BULA Welcome Pack at Smugglers Cove
Bula – Welcome to Fiji! Take the hassle out of arriving in Fiji with a ‘Welcome Pack’. Our friendly staff will be waiting at our Airport Office to greet you, check your arrangements and arrange to transfer you to your accommodation, Smugglers Cove Resort. The office is located on the left as you exit the customs hall into the arrivals area. Smugglers Cove is a fantastic place to begin your Fiji adventure, set on the beautiful Wailoaloa Beach, Nadi Bay. A backpackers and hotel rolled into one with quality rooms and dorms, they also have a girls only dorm. Enjoy a cold beer or a meal in the Ghost Ship Bar & Restaurant overlooking the pool and the beach. A modern, comfortable, friendly place popular with international travellers and only 20 minutes from the airport. Inclusions: Meet and greet by Awesome Adventures staff at the airport office • Airport transfer to your accommodation • Accommodation at Smugglers Cove • Breakfast the next morning • Transfer from Smugglers to Port Denarau for the vessel departure • Fiji Vodafone Sim card for your mobile with F$7 talk time & 2 GB of data.

 
Day 2: Overnight Beachcomber Island
Early coach pick up from your hotel to transfer you to Port Denarau in time to check-in for the 9:00 am departure for your “Seaspray Day Adventure”. Passengers travel to and from Mana Island on board our fast catamaran (where you will then transfer directly to the Seaspray yacht) to maximise the cruising time amongst the beautiful island areas. There’s nothing like a day at sea to ignite a big appetite so we include morning and afternoon tea plus a BBQ lunch. All your drinks are included as well with wine, beer, soft drinks, tea and coffee available throughout the day while onboard Seaspray. After your “Seaspray Day Adventure” you will be transferred to Beachcomber Island for your overnight stay.

 
Day 3: Overnight Mantaray Island Resort
After breakfast check out and be ready for your 9:15 am departure on board the Yasawa Flyer to head North to Mantaray Resort. Arrive around 11:30 am. Mantaray Resort is ideally nestled between two gorgeous white sandy beaches. The dining room and bar are set atop a hill with glorious views out over the surrounding islands. What a scene for that sunset cocktail! There are communal tables for mixing and mingling as well as tables for two. Down below on the beach is a lounge, bar and pizza bure. Set along the shore and in the trees are the sleeping bures (Fijian word for wood and straw huts) where you will stay each night, falling asleep to the sounds of the sea. Just off the beach is one of the best snorkeling areas you’ll find in the Yasawa’s. Manta rays cruise the nearby channels (seasonal), over 40 dive sites are in range and there is also excellent fishing to be had. There are hammocks, two beaches for topping up the tan, cool drinks to be had and friends to be met. During your time at Mantaray you have the choice of three activities to choose from (one included but you can also book/pay directly to the resort should you wish to do the others). Enjoy a sunset tube trip while you're here, a great way to chill out with a drink in hand, floating along the water (in a tube or boat) watching the sunset.

 

Day 4: Overnight Mantaray Island Resort
If you didn’t choose to do the Sunset Tube Trip, then choose from two other activities. You can swim with the manta rays (May to October) one of the most amazing experiences the natural world has to offer! These magnificent, majestic creatures come to this particular channel between two islands each day on the change of tide to feed. No photograph will prepare you for that first sighting of them. The mantas don’t seem to mind swimmers so there’s a good chance your encounter will be a lengthy one as they turn and glide in the waters beneath you, huge mouths open to feed on the plankton. Or, join a guided snorkelling trip (November to April). Mantaray Resorts’s unique guided snorkelling trips provide insightful information on the hundreds of species of fish, corals and marine life that inhabit the reserve directly in front of the resort. Guides ride in kayaks to offer support and reassurance for those less comfortable with snorkelling. Guided snorkelling trips operate on demand at mid to high tide. Please arrange to hire snorkelling equipment directly with your resort or take your own if you have it!


Day 5: Overnight South Sea Island - Meals Included
Morning free at Mantaray before we depart at 2:45 pm on board the Yasawa Flyer to head back to the Mamanuca Islands. Arrive at South Sea Island around 5:15 pm. South Sea Island is a tiny island but what a place - surrounded by crystal clear waters, coral reefs and home to thousands of tropical fish. You can stand on the beach on one side and watch the sunrise and later that day walk for all of a minute to the other side to watch the sunset! There’s a salt water swimming pool and non-motorised watersports equipment available free of charge. Take in the underwater world by snorkelling or aboard the semi-submersible. South Sea is also a great place to learn to dive. Our expert instructors and the shallow water with great clarity ensure your first dives will be memorable. The marine life and coral you’ll see will amaze you. Perhaps take a dive on our wreck. There is a traditional Meke performance and craft market put on every day at lunchtime (except Sundays) while you enjoy the BBQ buffet feast. Come the evening there is no more tranquil place to be – cold drink in hand and just the lapping of the waves. Located in the Mamanuca Islands just 30 minutes from Port Denarau, it’s the perfect pre and post Yasawa touring accommodation and with five arrival/departure times a day it’s easy to get to. The island has a 32-bed dorm with a large deck and sun loungers as well as three Double Bures. Tiny in size but big on awesomeness!

It was amazing trip, for Fiji you need to go with tour otherwise it's more expensive. Thr program is really nice : authentic fijian life experience, more modern life experience. Everything was different and interesting BUT Backpackers deals is really bad organization. They don't really card about you and all the itinerary time is fake. They forgot Read more about review stating Beautiful butto give us some paper and stop replying me when the trip is starting soon. I need to ask details by myself to them like "hi my trip start in 2 days, what time the tour will pick up us at hotel? And what's going on when we arrived?" They should give us this kind of details long time before and not waiting that I contact them.

My group of 3 did the one coconut full monty. Gold Coast: Amazing hospitality and people, but everything else was pretty limited. No blankets, no soap, no mirrors, no electricity, and no choices in what you will eat. Also, pretty pricey to rent or buy things there. Korovou: Really amazing backpacker resort. Great group of people and vibe. Read more about review stating Amazing overall true Fiji Experience; but not the typical resortsExactly how I would imagine a backing hostel to be in Fiji South Sea Island: Absolutely beautiful, but not much time on the island with this package which was upsetting. Amazing food, location, staff, and everything else.

My trip to the Mananuca and Yasawa Island Group was amazing. After two weeks travelling through the other islands of fiji, the time on the island group was perfect to rest a little bit, while enjoying the sun. The snorkling trips, that I could do own my own, around the islands and even the trip to the Sawa-i-lau cave were beautiful. The most amazi Read more about review stating Beach Holidays with adventure trips.ng moment, I have while snorkling with a Mantaray. It was awesome. Unfortunately, two of my resort hadn't my booking on their book, so I lost time, when they tried to find a room for me. But they always found a good solution.
