1 night at Smugglers Cove.
When we arrived into Fiji, we got some info at the airport about the Bula Pass (the ticket you need to island hop). Turns out that if we'd bought the pass in NZ we would of paid the same amount quoted in Fiji, but in NZ$ instead of FJ$ - BIG saving made already. So we bought our passes and would depart on our 10 day island-hop first thing in the morning.
Smugglers Cove's a cool hostel, its right on the beach with a good atmosphere and a nice beach bar.
We met a funny american (rare commodity) - he was an aspiring stand up comedian and after a few beers & lashings of peer pressure, he was soon standing up and telling us gags.
Off to bed for a busy day!
Nadi to Nabua Lodge
The boat we were getting - The Yasawa Flyer II departs at 8.30am (we were up at 6am though for showers and all that lark) every day, calling at all 24 resorts in the Mamanuca and Yasawa Island groups before returning home to Port Denerau at 5.30pm.
We were going to Nabua Lodge, which is the furthest point north possible and our boat ride took about 4.5hrs. I will also note, that in that 4.5hr timeframe, Charlie turned from a nice golden brown colour to a rich mahogany. I on the other hand gained 4 freckles and a pasty glow. Not fair.
