Located in the spectacular Yasawa region of the Fiji Islands, Octopus Resort lies 27 nautical miles west from Nadi International Airport (NAN). The resort is set on the western side of Waya Island, allowing for breathtaking views of sunsets in the South Sea Islands. Getting to Octopus Island Resort from Nadi is easily done by jumping on a boat, which is about 35 minutes. Along the way are there are many islands and if your lucky might see a pod of dolphins to watch play along the side of the boat.
There are Garden View Bure’s for accommodation but the perfect way to stay is in the Premium Bure as I recommend having the air-conditioning on those very hot days. Adjoining the room is your very own private outdoor shower and courtyard. The view from the front is relaxing and a nice change away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Say good bye to looking at your mobile phone and internet this is the perfect place to detox away from all those gadgets.
In the series of photographs. Can you see it? A face on the side of the mountain. The walk up is not for the faint hearted and I do recommend a level of fitness. With every step and grasping breath it was confirmed the height to the top of the island was 385m in total thanks to a German with a fancy watch. The hike took about 3 hours and is a great way to loose a little weight around the belly. If you do manage to visit this place please take plenty of water on the hike and some snacks.
Every day the local tour guide (depending on the weather) would take tourists up and he really enjoyed seeing how unfit we were often having a good laugh between breaks.. He had such a great sense of humour. The mountain walk is a great add to anyone’s bucket list and has to be one place on earth with the most breathtaking views. Just don’t look down it is by far another sheer drop if your scared of heights.
This is the type of holiday experience that is even better with friends and made as a group holiday.
