Mana, Amanuca, Treasure and Castaway all have really good snorkelling straight off the beach.

Navini (not to be confused with the Naviti on the Coral Coast) gets really good ravs too.

Im sure others will jump in with a few other suggestions.

Hey thanks. We were also hoping for adult oriented not family. I know Castaway is family friendly. How are the other islands?

All of the above mentioned are family friendly. Kids are welcome at Navini but it seems the majority who stay are adult from what I understand.

You could look at Tokoriki or Matamonoa, both of which are adult only.

Here is a link I was going to put up earlier for you before I got side-tracked by the phone... :(

It has most if not all of the resorts in the Mamanucas. Even though its all in Aussie dollars, it will at least give you a good description of each resort.

Good luck and happy researching!

Kids are fine at Navini, read the recent reviews. We have taken grand kids there and they were never bored. Matamanoa has great snorkeling and my favorite after Navini but no kids. Castaway would be next. Amanuca has a very pretty reef but not large. Mana and Treasure similar but I prefer the other much more.

If able, try the jet ski safari through Adrenalin Fiji that leaves from Sofitel that goes out for a snorkel at Beachcomber .

Pricey, but a whole lot a fun!
