You think the pace is slow on the main island of Viti Levu, it goes down a further few notches on Vanua Levu Fiji!
There's much less tourist infrastructure, gorgeous laid back tranquil resorts (if the resorts on the main island weren't relaxing enough!) and unspoilt natural beauty with a sprinkling of villages. Oh yeah, the diving is world class too.
Hot Labasa is situated in the north and you
won't be 'passing through' here unless you're exploring. Visiting can be done along the sole paved road between the two townships.
All of the tourist activity happens around charming Savusavu beautifully situated in Savusavu Bay on the south coast. It has Savusavu Airport, ferry and yacht wharfs, with beautiful resorts (check below) situated a short drive away. If you've booked your relaxing resort accommodation on Vanua Levu, it's more than likely here.
Savusavu is a must do when coming to Vanua Levu having restaurants, bars, supermarkets, tourist sights and activities, historical sites and more.
Air - Most people come via a domestic flight to Savusavu Airport. Flights are available from Nadi Airport (where you'll mostly be transferring from your international flight) and Nausori Airport (near Suva) with Pacific Sun (Fiji Airways). Chartered flights are also available.
Sea - Ferries from Suva on the mainland services stops including Taveuni, Labasa, and Savusavu. Those with considerable more time on their hands can check this option out with Bligh Water Shipping and Consort Shipping.
All details are found in our Transport in Fiji section.
Resort transfer - Chances are your resort will escort you with transfers to and from Savusavu Airport. Check with them upon booking.
There are local buses and plenty of taxis around Savusavu. Taxis are cheap and convenient to get around. If you are going out of Savusavu and your resort, hiring a 4WD can be done in Savusavu or through reception at your resort.
