The Yasawa Islands: Nacula

August 17, 2008

I’m not going to write much about Oarsman’s Bay Lodge on Nacula (pron. Na-thula). I will just post a few photos.
 
The quality of accommodation and service is really top-notch.

There are a number of swanky resorts including Nanuya Lai Lai Island Resort and the highly opulent Turtle Island Resort, where Britney Spears chose to spend her honeymoon. Jennifer Aniston is currently staying there at the time of visiting.

We’ve just spent 2 nights staying on the mid Yasawa islands of Waya and Waya Lai Lai (Little Waya) which was a wonderful experience. The nice thing was how much the villagers integrated with the vistors and how keen they were to show us their crafts (fishing, weaving, cocunuts, fire dances) and; to let us have a go and then proceed to roll about in laughter at our efforts!
