Levuka Historical Port Town
Nestled amongst swaying palm and coconut trees, stretched along white-sand beaches Levuka is an idyllic place to visit. As the only town on the island, Levuka is rich with the island’s history (it’s home to the oldest hotel in the South Pacific) and was the site for several historical events including the signing of the 1970 treaty that officially claimed Fiji’s independence from the British.

Island Hop to Leleuvia A tiny coral cay south of Levkua and Ovalau Island. It is a popular destination for beachcombers and kite surfers and truly makes one feel as though they are on a private island. Great for a day trip or maybe a stay overnight Leleuvia is just a little slice of beachfront paradise.
