Savusavu Hotsprings Hotel
Cousteau Fiji Resort.

Savusavu is Vanua Levu’s tourist centre, a small town hemmed in by steep hills and overlooking silvery Savusavu Bay towards moody mountains. In the town centre, hot springs bubble away behind the main street which has several excellent restaurants and bars, and three natural marinas which host over a hundred yachts at any one time during the sailing season from May to October. With great walks around the Savusavu Hills, fabulous snorkelling at Lesiaceva Point and a wacky old world atmosphere in town, Savusavu makes a pleasant short stay.

Hibiscus Highway
Heading southeast from Savusavu Town, past the airport, the Buca Bay Road, glorified as the Hibiscus Highway, is a single lane tar sealed road running through old copra plantations and past colonial style homesteads alongside the pretty southern coast. There are no specific attractions here but there is generally good snorkelling off the coast, especially around the mushroom islets of Maravu Point and there’s a decent public sandy beach at Sigasiga. There are several upmarket resorts along this stretch of road mostly aimed at scuba divers with access to both Namena Island reefs and the Rainbow Reef.

Natewa Peninsula
Twenty seven kilometres east of Savusavu Town is the turn off to Salt Lake where the Natewa Peninsula is almost severed from Vanua Levu, being connected by a kilometre wide strip of land connecting the lake to Natewa Bay . You can stay and explore the lake at Salt Lake Lodge which sits overlooking the mangrove lined Qaloqalo River . Fishing from the pontoon is excellent and kayaks are available for drifting up and down the river. Being in the mangroves, it’s also a pretty good spot for bird watching.

Beyond the Salt Lake turnoff, back on the Buca Bay Road , the Natewa Peninsula broadens with high forest teeming with endemic birdlife - it’s one of the few places in Fiji to spot the rare and tiny silktail. 4WD is needed to explore the region properly and if you end up at Dakuniba Village at the end of the road on the south coast, ask to see the petroglyphs etched into stone boulders alongside the creek bed. Boats leave from Natuvu on Buca Bay for Kioa, Rabi and Taveuni.
