We had the most wonderful time in Fiji. The places that we stayed at where great, very luxurious and we are glad that we splurged a little and whet to them.

The food here was AMAZING!! Lunch was a 3 course affair, Dinner was 4 courses, and Breakfast was almost anything you wanted (they even did lobster omelette's!!). Dinner always started off with a small tasting of soup; at first we where a bit sceptical, as the air temp was still in the mid to high 20’s, but these soups were soooo goood! We could have happily eaten a big pot of them and nothing else. But if we had done that then we would have missed out on all the other food! After most meals, you almost had to roll the two of us out of the restaurant!
The beaches were great. The sand was so soft that when you stood on it you would sink about 20cm, even on the wet sand! Because there are lots of beach options, we found that if one side of the island was windy, we would pop over to the other side and it would be calm.
We did the hike up to the top of Mt Vomo. It is recommended to do it early morning or late arvo. We did it at about 3pm. We knew it would be hot and tiring. And it was. We had such red faces during the hike, and also for a while after we finished. We took up water with us, and boy did we need it! The view was wonderful though and we took many photos.
We enjoyed having drinks at the Rocks Bar, that overlooks Little Vomo Island. And the Meke night on the Thursday night was lots of fun.
When it was time to leave Vomo, there was some issues with the boat we were catching back to the main land and it was running behind schedual, so we didnt leave the island til after 5pm, and then had to go out in small boat to meet it. We arrived back at the main land at 8pm and stayed at the Raddison for the night.
