Most beautiful island in Fiji, uninhabited, amazing water and sand! Very relaxing, try to go on the trip which takes not many people. Snorkeling around the island is fantastic, lots of wildlife + great reef.

Had a great day out at sea onboard the Whales Tale. Friendly staff and crew that made sure my friends and I were happy and laughing throughout the entire journey. The chef even baked a cake for a little boys birthday who was travelling with his family. Wouldnt mind doing this again.

We did this day out . last year in May. It was a really good trip. Crew are great. Food is good. Island is nice and has facilities and shade. Snorkelling was good once you got out over the drop off. The whole day was really well organised and value for money. Would go again.

Overall, it was good but I felt personality was missing. The crew wasnt that enthusiastic and I felt they were bored. The actual boat doesnt have the sails put up the whole time (which I expected).
