There’s no lack of romantic ways to spend your time together on the paradise island on Vanua Levu. Aside from days gliding across the water in a kayak or learning to scuba dive together, here are a few ideas on how to make your time on the island together truly special.

Private Beach Picnic

Let resorts like Nukubati Private Island set up a private table, umbrella and Champagne picnic for you on a sandbank amidst the Great Sea Reef. Koro Sun Resort and Emaho Sekawa Resort also offer private beach picnics where you’ll be transported to a secluded beach by boat.

Couples’ Massage

The Veidomoni Deck

The Veidomoni Deck is located at the Namale Resort and features a heart-shaped hot tub, as well as views of tidal pools and a magnificent display from a blowhole. The deck can be booked out for a private breakfast or lunch, giving you more reasons to share this stunning location nestled into volcanic cliffs together.

Walk to Beautiful Waterfalls

Set the scene right, perhaps for popping the questions or just to enjoy the view together at one of Vanua Levu’s majestic waterfalls. There is no lack of waterfalls on the wild and wonderful Vanua Levu, where many resorts will have waterfalls on their premises. The Emaho Sekawa Resort has three waterfalls near the resort, ranging from easy access through a local village to more difficult hiking.

Or if you’re feeling more adventurous, resorts like Koro Sun and Dolphin Bay Retreat offer waterfall tours where it’s encouraged to take a dip and even do a natural waterslide!

Romantic Scenic Flights

[Update: Scenic flights with Savusavu Helicopters are no longer available]. If sharing the excitement and intimacy of helicopter flight wasn’t enough, Savusavu Helicopters offers more ways to make a helicopter flight truly romantic. Fly over the breathtaking Natewa Bay and its coral reefs decorating the sea where you’ll also see a heart-shaped reef. Alternatively, choose the Romantic Beach Escape where you’ll be flown to your own piece of paradise to enjoy with sparkling wine and light refreshments.
