Where to go on Fiji
Going to Suva, Fiji on business next week and have scheduled a few days to relax before and after. I need suggestions for day trips from Suva. Looking for great beaches, perhaps resorts that will allow us to pay a fee for day use.

If you are interested in the best snorkeling - straight off the beach - on the most beautiful island in Fiji, I can highly recommend Royal Davui Island - you can look them up on the net to see what I mean. Suggest you stay at least 3 days - not cheap, but well worth it. We have done most of Fiji and this is absolutely magic!!!

jdsprod, If you do not want to spend over a $1000 a night at Davui why don't you go to Bounty Island for a few days before going to Suva.
Bounty Island is in the Mamanucas, 1/2 hour from the mainland.
Snorkling is great (gorgeous neon blue starfish), the food is great, the staff was fantastic, equipment is free. It is affordable!

donnae_b, Bounty Island sounds and looks very nice. Where did you stay? Do you know what the diving is like?
Royal Davui Island looks very nice but not sure if the budget will stretch that far

We stayed at the Bounty Resort. The Bures were rustic, with one exception, they had airconditioners. The airconditioners were a welcomed treat for us.
I did not see anyone diving at this resort.
A lot of snorkling and kayaking, but, no diving that I could see.
You might email them to ask about day trips diving.

We also stayed at Octopus. At this resort we saw people diving dailey.
The diving instructor from Beachcomer was at the resor the same time as us.
She spent a lot of time diving at Octopus.
