Any Travel Advice for those considering this island as a destination (e.g., where to stay, ease of getting there, how best to get around, language, money)?
You’ll need to get a boat from Denarau on the mainland to get to Tivua. You can even hire out the entire island for a private event if you want! You will set sail with Captain Cook Cruises and enjoy the best of Fiji hospitality not only on the boat but of course on the island too. Fijians are the friendliest people on earth! You might even get the chance to participate in a traditional kava ceremony on the boat. Everyone speaks a English in Fiji but it’s good to know a few local words in Fijian such as BULA (hello) and VINAKA (thank you).
Just make sure you pack a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent.
