Coral Coast early March 2012

Hi trippers,

Off to Crusoes's, Hideaway and Bedarra for most of March 2012.

Due to the recent flood weather I though it may be good idea to check with the community at TA for any tips or news on how things are there. Or any advice or precautions.

We did book travel insurance but am not sure if it will cover postponing due to the flooding or whether we really need to worry about it.

Any information gratefully appreciated.

Kindest regards

Hopefully the weather may be kinder in March, who knows, the forecasts for March aren't available yet.

I wouldn't worry about it at this time. Check the Fiji MET site closer to the time you are travelling.

all the best LTB

Thanks for the prompt reply.

So the floods haven't wiped the place out? I'm struggling to find info regarding current conditions and damaged caused.

Thanks again,

CC

Most of the damage was around Nadi and Ba.

Resorts like Crusoes have been there for some 40 years and a long way from Nadi area. There were no reports of Coral Coast resorts suffering damage.

Was on Coral Coast last week. Saw a bit of left over flood damage around Nadi. Weather was great. Didn't see any problems around Sigatoka. I stayed at Crusoes years ago when it was Man Fridays - great spot! Enjoy, Kaz

Was the weather good ? The forecast is not very clear as to how much sunshine is currently being experienced

We were supposed to be on Treasure Island for one week, however, the weather was terrible and all the activities were indefinitely postponed. So after four days we decided to transfer to Outrigger for a chance of better weather. The late afternoon we arrived it was a bit overcast, but no rain. The next two days were perfect - sunshine, light breeze, hot. The day we were leaving it was drizzily. Other guests told us the weather leading up to our two days had been terrible, but nowhere near as bad as out on Treasure Island. I checked out Plantation Island webcam this morning (I know its not near the Coral Coast!) and there was blue sky and calm water, so hopefully it is on the Coral Coast as well. You would hope it might be more stable by March.

This was todays post about the weather from the Nadraki weather service in Fiji. We are expected to see an improving trend in weather today and over the coming week. The cloud band that brought the rain to the west late last week and on Saturday has now contracted to the northeast of the country and though it is still affecting Vanua Levu, Taveuni and other nearby islands, it is expected to move away to the east by tonight leaving relatively clear skies over Fiji.
