Although isolated, the advantage of staying on Beqa Island (versus the more populated main island or the well-traveled Mamanuca Group where the majority of the larger hotels and tourist trade is located) is that you’ll experience a much greater sense of Fijian hospitality.
The locals that live on the island are true villagers and because of the rural nature of the island they are naturally friendlier. They simply see fewer visitors and retain their genuine Fijian warmth and innocence.
Beqa Island is small and rugged, with jagged hills, waterfalls, and unmarred physical beauty. The lagoon is home to a staggering array of sea life – large sea creatures such as the blue marlin wahoo, swordfish and tuna – as well as the brilliant soft corals, gorgonian sea fans, octopus, electric clams, angelfish, grouper, butterfly and lion fish, parrot and anemone fish, spotted rays and blue ribbon eels, nudis and a whole lot more.
