Swim in clear, warm water or lie on the soft, white sand of Castaway Island, miles from civilization. Enjoy superb tennis courts and swimming pools or explore the majestic underwater world just offshore where colorful fish inhabit bright coral reefs.
Spend long, luxurious days on the gorgeous beaches that encircle this 174-acre (70-hectare) island. Use the natural peace and tranquility to enjoy some reading or simply doze in the warm, tropical sun. When it starts to get warm, soak your feet in the Pacific Ocean that laps gently against the shore. If you are feeling adventurous, try skimming across the pristine water on a windsurfer or rent a snorkel and mask to observe the beautiful selection of marine animals that live here.
Play a game of volleyball on the beach or head to the tennis courts which provides rackets for guest use. After some exercise, cool off at either of the two swimming pools nearby.
As the pleasant evening temperatures arrive take a seat at the bar and sip a refreshing cocktail while you discuss the day’s activities or play some board games. Satisfy your appetite with delicious Asian cuisine or head to the grill where succulent meat and fish are cooked in front of you. With the moonlight beginning to sparkle on the ocean, refill your glass to the sound of a live Fijian band or try dancing with a bit of island style.
Castaway Island is part of the Mamanuca Island group and sits approximately 18 miles (30 kilometers) west of mainland Fiji. Catch the regular high-speed ferry from Denarau Marina or arrive by helicopter or amphibious plane from Nadi Airport. Accommodations are provided in private thatched bungalows spread across the island.
