Savusavu, Fiji

Savusavu boasts one of the most spectacular harbors in the South Pacific. Its serene waters are dotted with islands. Rugged volcanic ridges, their slopes covered in rainforest, tower above the coastal plains. Coconut palms and old copra plantations line the southern shore. Strolling through the streets of Savusavu town, the visitor feels as if he or she has stepped back in time to the Fiji of old. Life here seems to move at a more serene pace. No wonder the international yachting set has made Savusavu one of the Pacific's top destinations.

Protected by mountains, Savusavu Bay is one of the finest sheltered anchorages in the South Pacific. The US Navy chose it as a "hurricane hole" during World War II - a place of refuge during the Pacific typhoon season.
