01 Jun 2013

Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Ask eg. From your accommodation about the alternative means of transportation.. Fishing boats do go from Lautoka to Yasawas and back time to time, & save you a log of money if on a tight budget. Allow enough time though, the boats don't have specific timetables but leave whenever the captain/fishermen are ready to go :)

Liked: Beautiful nature, great beaches, good snorkeling

Disliked: The whole consept of these so called 'backpacking' places in the area. Most are expensive, especially the packages + the transportation is very expensive if using the yellow boat. Could get similar experience 1/10 the price e.g. In Thailand or Indonesia..

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Family Holiday Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: take lots of mosquitoe repellant and make sure the accommodation has mosquitoe nets. Also take your own medical supplies. It is hard to get supplies in the islands, though the resorts have limited supplies and will send for more on the boat. It took 3 days to get eye drops for conjunctivitis. We did get antibiotics from the resort for a chest infection.

Liked: The palm fringed beaches are truly beautiful. The coral reefs are fantastic for snorkelling over. The water is lovely and warm. The people are friendly, kind and helpful.

Disliked: The mosquitoes and sandflies.
