Mamanuca Islands Tours

Blessed with eternal sunshine, pristine beaches, and lush coconut palms, the Mamanuca Islands are the definition of a tropical paradise. The cluster of tiny islands, dotted along the western edge of Fiji, were also the filming location for the film Cast Away and the TV show Survivor: Fiji.

The Basics
To reach the Mamanuca Islands, half- and full-day catamaran cruises set sail from Denarau Marina in Nadi and there are plenty of options from which to choose. Enjoy island-hopping around the Mamanuca archipelago, stopping to swim or snorkel at the beaches of Malamala, Bounty, Treasure, or Vomo islands. Alternatively, spend the whole day at a resort on Beachcomber or South Sea Island, where you can take part in water sports, tuck into a beachside barbecue lunch, and watch traditional Fijian dance performances. Independent travelers can also opt for a hop-on hop-off island pass valid for up to 15 days and offering unlimited boat rides between the Mamanuca Islands and Yasawa Islands. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Most shops and attractions on Fiji are closed on Sundays. 
  • Bring sunscreen, insect repellent, and your swimsuit—the Mamanuca Islands are perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
  • A majority of the island’s restaurants are within the resorts, but most welcome non-guests and most tours include lunch. 

How to Get There
The Mamanuca Islands lie just off the coast of Denarau, making them among the most easily accessible of all Fiji’s islands. The quickest way to get there is by seaplane or helicopter, which takes 15 minutes from Nadi, but there are also regular boats and catamarans that travel between Nadi and the islands.  

When to Get There
With temperatures reaching 86 °F (30°C) year-round, any time is a good time to visit Fiji. Peak tourist season is June and July, when it’s best to book tours and accommodation in advance. The summer months (November to April) have the hottest weather and the most rainfall. 

Things to Do on Mamanuca Islands
Lazing about in the sun is one of the best ways to enjoy the Mamanucas, and they offer plenty of opportunities, from the tiny, uninhabited Monuriki, which was featured in the movie Cast Away, to Bounty Island where Survivor: Fiji was filmed. There are ample opportunities for snorkeling and water sports at the islands’ many resorts, with popular activities including kayaking,  jet-skiing, waterskiing, and banana boat rides. More adventurous type can try wakeboarding or parasailing, go scuba diving at famous dive sites known as Gotham City and the Supermarket, or try surfing around the southern islands. If you prefer calmer activities, try the islands of Tokoriki and Navini, which offer great walks, good native bird-watching and decent game fishing.
