Arrive in style at Tivua Island and become fully immersed in Fijian culture with a kava welcome ceremony. Once you’re on the island, you’ll have complete flexibility on what to do. You can go exploring, sunbathe on the white-sandy beaches, or swim in the sea. If you’d prefer to take part in activities, you can choose from snorkeling, fishing, or beach volleyball. Choose to use a kayak, stand-up paddleboard, or canoe.
The buffet lunch has an impressive mix of meat, vegetables, fish, salad, fruit, and more, with beer, wine, and soft drinks also included. Afternoon tea is the last refreshment of the day, before coming into the dock and enjoying hotel drop-off.

Island was gorgeous but you only get 3 hours on the actual island, don’t think it was worth this for the price. Would have been a lot better if more time could be spent on the islandMore
