    Castaway Island (Qalito)
    Stop: 9 hours
    Castaway is one of Fiji's most beautiful island resorts and has an amazing 'Fijian family' friendliness. It is home to a fantastic range of things to see and do. You'll cruise out to Castaway on our high-speed catamaran. The beauty of the resort with its perfect white sand and swaying palms stretches before you as you are welcomed ashore. Enjoy lazing in the sun beneath the trees and wander along the soft sand. Snorkel straight off the beach in the crystal-clear waters and over vibrant coral reefs. An island massage experience or the use of motorised and non-motorised water sports equipment including kayaks, catamarans and windsurfers is available for an additional charge. Resort facilities include a freshwater swimming pool, three bars and a resort boutique. On the return cruise to Denarau you'll take in the sights of other islands in the Mamanuca group. The perfect end to a perfect day.

Great Day Trip for Relaxing
We went on this tour on 31 May 18 and loved it. Pickups and drop offs were on time and the catamaran was large, clean and provided a super smooth trip.
Trip to Castaway gave us a great look at other islands as we dropped off visitors to other islands in a well drilled passenger exchange.
Our day was well hosted by a lovely lady whose name escapes me. Loads of multicolored fish to see while snorkeling and lunch was a super buffet with a range that surprised me, so good.
Thanks folks.

The Overwhelming Castaway Island
My wife and I visited Castaway Island and were blown away. First of all the Convenience in getting to the island was amazing. The boat trip over was spectacular and the views were one for the books. Upon arriving at Castaway we were greeted with singing locals and probably the best looking resort we’ve ever seen. We snorkelled, Kayaked, swam, drank cocktails and enjoyed the immaculate buffet lunch. The staff and facilities were top notch. Great value for money and a day you will not forget.

Beautiful Island
Mar 2018 • Couples
From the moment we were picked up from the hotel to arriving on Castaway Island we knew we were in for a treat.

Whilst the trip to the island takes about 2 hours via Ferry it was worth the ride.

Once arrived we were shown around the island and told what we can do. Castaway Island is great for anyone wanting to relax or do some activities as well.

We did snorkelling from the beach which was nice, quite a few fish to see. After this we had lunch from the buffet which was very nice. Staff were all friendly.

The rest of the time we relaxed by the hotel pool, sat on the chairs on the beach as well as sitting at the bar.

The bar is a great place to take photos as well.

Would return again

Amazing!!!!
We were picked up on time in a luxurious bus. Clearly directed to where we had to go once the bus arrived at Port Denarau. Directed again on which cruise ferry we were on. They have snack food and drink available on board. There's seating in air conditioning, middle deck or on the top deck in the Sun. Informative commentary about the islands as we approach them, and instructed on who is to get off the ferry and who is to stay on. Their maps are easy to follow and so is their time table.
We had a fantastic time on the cruise/ferry and our day of fun at Castaway Island.

A great day out with lovely Tour Guide
Nov 2017 • Family
We spent a day in November on castaway.

Our daughter Ava, was absolutely taken by the guide Lo!

She made her feel special and we all had an amazing day, swimming, snorkeling, the food at lunch was very good.

Probably underestimated the length of the boat trip, it took nearly two hours to get there but it was a lovely trip.
