hi, I am planning a 6 month trip to Fiji, Oz and NZ from Easter weekend in April onwards. I have 5 nights to spend in Fiji and am most interested in visiting the Yasawa islands.
Only thing is, very confused about which is the best choice! Very overwhelmed by the amount of options and reviews I have been reading. Ideally I would like to be in the North so I have the option of doing the Sawilai caves, I'd like to be somewhere with great snorkelling (tho I have read that resorts such as Botaira have the best snorkelling), and somewhere that isn't a rowdy massive resort but as I am travelling solo with people I can talk to. From what I have read Sunrise Lagoon looks like a massive and very lively resort, whereas I don't mind paying a little bit more to have a very Fiji experience and have good food etc, I have seen the Nanuya Island resort and whilst I wouldn't mind going here I am not sure if it would be a couples only type resort.
I am 29 so am up for having drinks and chatting with people in the evening but i'd rather not be in a large back-packer type place.
Any tips on what resorts or nearby islands (still within reach of the Sawailai caves) that are very picturesque and relaxing and not entirely couples honeymooning?
