The Lomaiviti Islands group includes 16 islands in Fiji’s archipelago. Rugged peaks with spectacular beauty contrast with well-developed tourist destinations that offer great facilities and activities. At the heart of Fiji’s colonial past, discover the country’s first capital Levuka, or enjoy the spectacular islands Fiji
is best known for. Don’t wait for your next holiday to paradise - book your Lomaiviti Islands hotel right now!
Levuka is the largest city in the islands and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk through exhibits in the Fiji Museum to examine photos and artefacts from the region's history, as well as war clubs and cannibal forks from the islands’ more aggressive past. Head to Gun Rock for an impressive view just behind Beach Street that offers a lovely panorama across the city’s harbour.
The sandy white beaches and crystal clear water combine to form a snorkeler’s dream. Get in the ocean and check out the huge variety of coral and sea life flourishing around the islands. Love fishing? The water here is full of big fish, so book a charter and cast poppers into the reef’s backwash. You’ll have a heart-pumping time reeling in a local trevally which can weigh up to 50kg! If you’re looking for something more peaceful, a whale watching tour lets you see humpbacks up close, or rent a yacht and spend an afternoon sailing on the water.
Every island in the archipelago boasts its own unique sights. Don’t leave without visiting Caqalai, which is perfect for kayaking in the calm water, snorkelling or simply enjoying the beach. On Ovalau
stop in at a local village and meet the friendly people, they are very welcoming to tourists. Get a feel for history on Leleuvia, the "Kannibal Pot" in the centre of the island that is kept as a reminder and tribute to the islands ancient customs and traditions.
