Postcard from Mamanuca Islands, Fiji

Postcard From Fiji Chelsea Rowe

I was lucky enough to get hosted by Tourism Fiji on a trip to the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji (pronounced Mamanuthas).


South Sea Cruises hosted us on their Sabre Sailing experience on their new Catamaran, which was such a fun and relaxing experience as we lounged on the beanbags, ate an awesome lunch, snorkelled and then swam to a sandbar. They even brought us a cooler of drinks to the sandbar.


We also got to spend a day at Malamala Beach Club Island, which surpassed all of my expectations. If you’re staying in Denarau, it’s less than 30mins by Ferry to get out there and is very affordable for a day trip.  


We went in November, so we also got to experience a Cyclone, as this is Fiji’s wet season. One thing I can say is that these island resorts are very well equipped to deal with weather events. We never lost power or water, there were regular updates from the resort and there was plenty going on to keep everyone entertained. At no point did I feel unsafe.


Once the sun came out, we got to see Fiji in all its glory with blue skies, warm breezes through the coconut trees and crystal clear waters – which only got surpassed by the wonderfully friendly Fijian people. Whether you’re travelling with family, friends or your partner – there is something for everyone in the Mamanucas.
