Map
Likori Island, Nadi,

What to Expect: Located in an estuary along the Coral Coast of the main Fijian island of Viti Levu, 26-acre, palm-covered Likuri Island caters to intrepid party-loving travelers, with basic dormitories and small private thatched-roofed bures, or huts. The five bures have lots of windows, but the décor, though colorful, is sparse, with only the essentials. Note: Island Lodge is the only bure with a private bathroom. Meals are inspired by local ingredients, leaning heavily on curries, seafood, and tropical fruit, like payapaya, breadfruit, and noni; Happy hour starts each evening at 5:30 p.m. in the open-sided Wreck Bar.

 

What to Do: The options are endless: borrow a sea kayak and paddle around the island or explore the estuary; walk one mile around the island on its long white-sand beach; learn how to paddle a six-person outrigger canoe; take a class in Fijian, Polynesian, and Melanesian dance—or watch the local villagers’ own dance show, which includes a thrilling fire dance. End your day with a traditional Polynesian massage.

 

Getting There: The boat trip to the island near Natadola Beach includes a 30-minute jungle journey on the Tuva River and a 10-minute lagoon crossing.
