Your eyes will struggle to take it all in!
The intense blue sea, the tall leaning palms, the idyllic hammocks that line the beach, the beach-lazers - book-in-hand. This place was living up to its name. Paradise.
Fiji has been on our bucket list since basing ourselves in Sydney, only a short 4 hour flight directly into Nadi airport. We bagged ourselves cheap flights in Jetstar's sale - $400 return flight per person.
Choosing the Yasawa islands
Fiji is made up of 333 islands, with the main land being Vitu Levi where the main international airport is based in Nadi.
We decided on the Yasawa Islands as we had a short 5 day trip, they were convenient being only a few hours from the Marina. They are also renowned as being home to some of the clearest waters and finest sands in the world.
How to get to the islands
Paradise Cove resort is located on Naukacuvu Island in the Yasawa Island chain and can be reached by boat, seaplane and helicopter. We boarded the Yasawa Flyer at Denarau Marina which can be booked online, this departed at 08:30am and we arrived at the resort just before midday. You are looking at around
