Location: Tavewa, Fiji

MapWe had booked a 7 night long island hopping tour with Awesome Adventures of the Yasawa Islands. A massive yellow boat took us 4 hours out to our first island, Tavewa. When we arrived we were shown to our accomodation, a traditional Fijian Bure. The only way we could describe this was as a little wendy house, no fan, no electric and no light. As the locals would live possibly. We had a great group and a great laugh for the 2 days we were here. The island had some great beaches including a place called the Blue Lagoon which was absolutly amazing. The water was crystal clear and the sand was white. Ro played a bit of volleyball with our fellow travellers and the locals. We also got to try some of the local drink, Kava. It looks like dirty dish water and doesnt taste much better but we had to try it. Although the accomodation was basic and food not that great the staff here were fantastic and made the stay here so much better.
