If you have the chance of visiting Fiji then do not miss this island. Yes it’s called “The Garden Island” because it’s hot, steamy and often wet, but go and you will be rewarded with one of the most authentic parts of Fiji. But it’s not just on dry land that Taveuni makes an impression. The island’s beauty descends below the water’s surface, attracting divers from across the globe. The Somosomo Strait (Fijian for ‘good water’) has strong tidal currents which provide a constant flow of nutrients, idyllic for soft coral growth, healthy and diverse eco systems and plentiful fish life. Yes it’s quite a trip to get here, but the diving is phenomenal! Just go and you’ll see. We did it and we loved it!

The best time to visit Fiji is between the months of April and November when the weather is dry and the temperature ranges between 26°C to 30°C. Outside this period it can get quite hot and unpleasantly humid.
