click to enlarge The town of Savusavu or the "the hidden paradise" as it is locally known, is situated on Fiji's second largest island of Vanua Levu.
Vanua Levu (pronounced Va-new-ah Lay-vu), with a population of approximately 130,000, is the second largest island of the Fiji archipelago.

With an area of 5538 square km, it is slightly larger than half the size of Viti Levu, the main island of Fiji. The island measures 180 km long and has an average width of 33 km.

The island is rugged, untrammelled and the coast is surrounded by an extensive system of coral reefs, the third longest barrier reef in the world is off its northern coast.

Once a center for the copra (Coconut) trade, sugar cultivation is the most important industry and large cane fields can be seen on the dry western and northern coasts.

Savusavu has excellent facilities including a full service boating marina to go with its newly acquired status of international Port of Entry.

The bay has navigable, deep water, perfectly sheltered from the ocean swells and is probably one of the largest and best-protected anchorages in all of the South Pacific Ocean.

There are many resorts in the area including Namale which is owned by Tony Robbins, best selling author, television star and peak performance coach and of course the Jean Michel Cousteau Fiji island resort.
One of the most striking aspects about the town of Savusavu is the hot springs, which add a surreal, twilight zone quality. The hot springs are scattered liberally around the town limits. Steam rises literally from the cracks in the sidewalks, in grassy lots, from the seashore and even from the municipal pier, which has to be paved periodically due to the corrosion from the thermal activity. Geologically, the whole town is kind of a devils kitchen, which locals have adapted to.

There are several flights everyday from Nadi airport and the capital city, Suva and inter-island roll-on roll off ferries call in most days.
