Day to day itinerary
Denarau Marina to the Mamanuca Islands
Take a short 1.5 hour cruise to the South West to the Mamanuca Islands, and aim to anchor in the lee of Tavarua Island which is in the centre of the surfing capital of Fiji - and includes the ‘Cloud’ and ‘Restaurant’ breaks. Renowned as the ‘heart-shaped island, this is your first postcard-perfect experience. Even for guests without the surf interest, these islands are stunning and are a great start to the trip for all onboard. If the weather does not suit this anchorage, a short 1 hour trip will take us to the Malolo Island lagoon, home to the famous Muscat Cove Resort and Marina and explore the surf breaks by tender.
Malolo and Tavarua Islands
the day exploring Malolo and Tavarua islands which can include surfing, swimming, snorkelling, shopping and sightseeing. The white sandy beaches here will have you wanting to get ashore for a walk. You can relax in the cool waters at the sand bar or venture out to the Cloud 9 Platform and watch the famous Cloud break whilst enjoying a cocktail. The snorkelling is excellent in this area and it is a great place for watersports. We will spend the night here, so if you feel like a stroll around the local resort before dinner then this is a great opportunity to do so. The beach bar here has spectactular sunset views to be enjoyed.
Navadra and Vanua Islands
After breakfast, and maybe a morning swim or surf, we will sail 3 hours to the North West towards Navadra and Vanua Islands. These stunning islands have a beautiful stretch of beach and great snorkelling on the Garden Reefs. The beach can be accessed by tender from mid to high tide otherwise paddleboards or kayaks can be used at low tide. If weather permits, we will anchor here for the night or sail a quick 1 hour to the North for South Waya Island and anchor at Yalobi Bay which is more protected. There may also be an opportunity to visit the local village where you will receive a warm welcome from the local villagers who will happily show you around their village including the local school. The Fijians have had kava ceremonies for years and you may be invited to take part in one whilst ashore!
Waking up at Navadra Island or the protected waters of Yalobi Bay is a beautiful way to start your day. After a refreshing swim and breakfast we will make our way North for 1.5 hours to Cuvu Bay on the Southern end of Naviti Island which is a fantastic place to snorkel and a rare opportunity to swim with manta rays. We will fish along the way and see if we can catch something tasty for lunch. We can anchor here for the night or continue 2 hours North to the Blue Lagoon near the Nanuya Levu and Matacawa Islands
The Blue Lagoon
Blue Lagoon was the location of the 1980’s movie “The Blue Lagoon” starring Brooke Shields. This is a beautiful place to spend the day and a great place for a hike should you wish to stretch your legs. The snorkelling here, as you can imagine, is breath taking and the beaches are picture perfect. We can anchor here for the night or move to nearby Sawa-i-lau Island. Sawa-i-lau is famous for its underwater caves. Here the locals will help you through a small underwater cave and when you resurface you will be in these exquisite caves. The lagoon has some really good snorkelling spots or can be explored by kayak or paddle board. Ashore are some shell markets which are definitely worth a visit. If you feel like a little pampering or massage then the resort here offers some great treatments.
Yasawa Island and Champagne Beach
After our usual morning swim and breakfast, we will relocate 2 hours North to Yasawa-i-Ra, which has one of Fiji’s best beaches aptly named Champagne Beach. This is a perfect spot for the crew of Silvertip to organise a beach picnic or BBQ for you. The snorkelling is terrific here so a good opportunity to lap up some of the crystal clear waters and take in the underwater marine life. In the evening you can go ashore to watch a Meke, a traditional Fijian dance and take part in a Kava ceremony.
For the next few days of the trip we will make our way South to eventually return to Denarau Marina. Depending on your experience and impressions, you can re-visit a favourite spot, explore new coves and bays such as the beautiful Somosomo Bay on North Naviti Island, or Paradise Cove in the South. Both locations are located within a few hours of cruising or sailing. Regardless of where we stop in the last few days, we will take every opportunity possible to explore the best of the Fijian islands.
Vomo Island offers a beautiful anchorage, this is a great spot to relax on board Silvertip where the crew can look after your every needs. Vomo is a private island with no other resorts or villages, therefore a perfect place to go for a quiet stroll along the beach. The resort here is 5-star so you will be embraced by a truly unique and personal Fijian experience. Mt Vomo rises on the eastern side of the island and provides spectacular 360-degree views to those who wish to conquer it. Soft white sands fringe Vomo and drift into the clear waters that can be safely enjoyed throughout the entire day for snorkeling, swimming or paddle boarding. You will feel pure serenity on board Silvertip in this peaceful anchorage.
the day cruising back to Namotu Island on the stunning Roro Reef. Namotu Island is a South Pacific fantasy that is considered world class for surfing, diving, sailboarding, kite surfing, fishing and standup paddle boarding. This is a great location for game fishing out from the southern reef. The chef can prepare something to your taste with the days catch and you can sit back and relax at the anchorage this beautiful island offers.
