View Fiji Routes in a larger map
The map above shows our historical routes and plans around Fiji. The green lines show the routes Tahina has already traveled around the south and eastern parts of Vanua Levu. The orange route show a rough approximation of our planned routes over the next couple of months. As you can see, we plan to stop at the island of Namenalala (home to Moody’s Namenalala Resort, and some great scuba diving).
Then we will head northwest, first stopping at Yadua island (we may not be able to stop here because we heard they are trying to protect the lizard/iguana sanctuary there). Then we’ll head southwest to make our way around some reefs to the northern part of the main island of Fiji, Viti Levu, to a place called Volivoli Point. There we will wait for the right weather. Then we head west to the northern Yasawa Island group and make our way south eventually to the popular Musket Cove Resort – which caters to visiting yachties.
We need a few parts for the boat, so we are buying stuff and having it sent along with other mail to Nadi sometime next month. Having stuff sent is always a big deal for us cruisers. There’s a lot of work involved in going through customs procedures and a lot of cost in both shipping and customs fees. Therefore, we only do this a couple of times a year usually. It will be like Christmas when we finally get everything here!
Due to weather factors, we won’t be leaving Savusavu until at least Friday afternoon.
