Fiji and its glorious tropical beauty — 332 islands in all — are considered within the tourism industry to be one of the last remaining frontiers of the Pacific basin. Perfectly situated between Fiji’s very popular Mamanuca and Yasawa Island chains, this stunning tropical island is a pearl of the South Pacific, blessed with three beautiful white sand beaches. At 70 acres, its large size and its stellar location make it the perfect setting for a luxury private island resort.
Just to the south of the island, the tropical island beauty of the Mamanuca Islands has been globally celebrated on screen, serving as the backdrop for the Tom Hanks movie Cast Away, as well as Survivor: Fiji. Excellent diving, snorkeling and surfing are just a few of the water sport options that have made the Mamanucas so popular with global travelers.
Meanwhile to the north, the Yasawa Islands and their soaring peaks offer a more rugged and untouched glimpse of Fiji — a place where outsiders weren’t even allowed to set foot until the 1950s, and where a government ecotourism initiative is now helping visitors to discover this fascinating area of breathtaking beauty.
Set just 50 kilometres (31 miles) from Fiji’s Nadi International Airport, the island is ideally located to welcome luxury travelers from around the world, who use Nadi not only as an entry point to Fiji, but as the gateway to the country’s many delights. Fiji’s hub location within the Pacific have helped it to foster close air and sea links with the major tourist markets of Australia, New Zealand, North America and Japan. With Fiji’s fast-growing tourism industry and great infrastructure, the island is an excellent opportunity for the right developer to capitalize on the prestige of Fiji within the luxury tourism market.
