Kadavu is an island in the south of Fiji. Kadavu is located in the South Pacific ocean and is party of the many islands that make up Fiji.
Kadavu is the fourth largest island of Fiji and is made up of smaller island like Ono an Galoa. Kadavu is 58km long and 14km wide and supports a population of 10,000 Fijian people. The main city in Kadavu is Vunisea, which hosts an air strip, hospital, post office and police station. Kadavu’s weather is tropical and has an authentic island feel. Some of the natural resources of Kadavu include mountainous jungles and waterfalls, bays fringed by coral reefs and a mangrove forest that provides a habitat to a host of wildlife and birds, including the Kadavu musk parrot. Kadavu’s seemingly untouched and natural state makes it a good remote vacation destination.
Kadavu has undergone very little development; it offers limited transportation and there are few if any surface roads that go through the island. The current system of transportation includes a system of boat taxis and ferries. Neither are there any dining out destinations, only some resorts. Most resorts have a relationship with neighboring villages that will allow one to sample traditional Fijian food during village tours, hikes or Meke nights. Kadavu totally integrates the wildlife, the locals and the tourism industry and is one of the leading places in the world for the promotion of environmental conservation and sustainable tourism.
Kadavu’s rich wild life and natural resources allow for a wide range of activities to partake in on the island. Kadavu is known for being the ultimate diving site. Popular diving sites are the Naigoro Passage which is a massive marine reserve. Also the Manta Reef which inhabits the Manta rays, the Soso Passage where it offers the largest underwater coral garden and lastly the Nacomoto Passage which is home to the eagle rays and cabbage coral. Other activities include: Visiting the waterfalls, bird watching, eco- experiences, sea kayaking, whale and dolphin watching, trekking, snorkeling and surfing.
