Fiji is the perfect place for a yacht charter holiday. Imagine white sandy beaches, aquamarine water and swaying palms trees. Many areas of the Fijian Islands are inaccessible to tourism because of their remoteness, which gives sailing yacht charters a real scope for adventure.The capital, Nadi is on the island of Vita Levu. There are a couple of island groups within a few hours by sailboat from Vitu Levu. Most of the Mamanuca islands host modern resorts with at least a bar and restaurant, so you’ll never be short of a good meal. Musket Cove Resort, one of the only islands with marina facilities for yachts, has been awarded the “Best Resort in Fiji” – not a bad place to start your yacht charter.
If you’d prefer to catch your own meal, sail up to the Yasawa Island group, famous for the filming of the ‘Blue Lagoon’. The Yasawa Islands are a true paradise. The volcanic nature of the Fijian Islands creates a spectacular backdrop for cruising. The Yasawa Islands are still occupied by local villagers. Most sailing charter guests find them a refreshing change from the commercialism of the Mamanuca’s and the Coral Coast. The water is clear and fresh, the fishing is great, and the locals are friendly.
In Vanau Levu the northern island you will discover a marine spectacle. Around Taveuni, Savusavu, Namena Reef and Koro Island, you’ll find some of the best diving in the world. The island itself is covered in lush rainforests and waterfalls and the water below, is home to some incredible coral and marine life. There are plenty of natural bays in which to anchor a yacht.
The Fiji sailing season begins in April and ends around December when unpredictable weather threatens the South Pacific. The types of yacht charter available in Fiji include motor, sailing, bareboat charter, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, and even the occasional luxury yacht charter.
There really is no better way to experience to culture, beauty and diversity of Fiji, than on your very own charter boat.
