Located about 64 kilometres north of the main island Viti Levu, Vanua Levu has been described as an ideal place to visit ‘The Real Fiji’ as it’s unlike the other resort-filled islands. The main town of Savusavu is renowned for diving and water-based activities. Ideal for couples and solo travellers, this island provides a more secluded escape, with plenty of transport options to the other islands.
