Day 2: Cruise to the Blue Lagoon region
Relax on deck as we cruise towards the Blue Lagoon region, passing several of the larger Yasawa islands with their beautiful bays. The Blue Lagoon is a stunning stretch of water encircled by islands, creating a coral-filled lagoon – a great place to enjoy some snorkelling.
We have our own private beach on Nanuya Lai Lai Island where you can play beach volleyball, enjoy a massage or just relax on the sun loungers taking in the view. You’ll have plenty of time here to swim, snorkel and feed the fish, with the option to go for a dive at an additional cost.
Happy hour this evening will be served on shore, accompanied by canapes before dinner. Get ready for your first taste of a traditional Lovo meal cooked underground in a specially prepared pit, served on the beach under the stars. Dinner is followed by a fantastic 'meke' (performance) from a group of villagers, including singing, dancing and storytelling.
