White Sandy Beach is definitely a stop to make if travelling around the Yasawas! The four of us travelled here as part of the Awesome Adventures Combo Pass, and as such only booked for a dorm, but when we arrived, the staff was nice enough to upgrade us to a private bure out of their own generosity for a night.
The staff of White Sandy Beach definitely make up most of the atmosphere, who by the end of the first day will know you by name and make sure you know them too. The night entertainment was definitely the highlight, with lots of Fijian singing and dancing, and games to get everyone involved. The boys even set up a bonfire on the beach where you spend the rest of the night chatting, singing and joking with other guests and the staff.
The short 10min trek to Honeymoon Beach is definitely worth doing, as you are rewarded with a secluded and beautiful beach, and the snorkelling is amazing. If you're not up for the walk, the snorkelling out the front of the beach at high tide is also great, with unending colours of coral and fish. Do make sure to check the snorkels you pick though, as many of them have obvious holes, and some of them leak slowly. Unfortunately the manta rays were not in season, but I am sure it would've been amazing.
The meals are great here, inclusive of a 3-course meal for dinner and of course lots of fruit. The dorms are not as great, slightly small and a bit of a squeeze. But the entire atmosphere of the place completely made up for it, and if you're looking to have a great and memorable time.. this is definitely the place to be! I recommend this place to anyone visiting the Yasawas, and will definitely go back someday!
