Savusavu is located 100 miles northeast of Suva on Vanua Levu, the second largest island in the Fiji Group. It is located on the shores of a large picturesque, deep water harbour where cruise ships visit regularly. The town has only one main street with a range of shops and services on offer.
Activities on Savusavu include scuba diving, sailing trips, sport fishing, cultural tours, snorkeling & kayaking. Attractions in the area include the thermal hot springs at Nakama and the blowholes at Namale. Tours and scenic drives, bay cruises and fishing, reef-beach activities and local entertainment are all easily arranged. A tour of a working copra plantation is a unique experience. The Planter’s Club located at the end of the main street is a center for social activity, as is the Copra Shed Marina.
