Independent review of Coral View Resort in the Yasawa Islands of Fiji

coral view resort hotel location picture

Coral View Resort is one of the orginal backpacker resorts in the Yasawa Islands and has evolved to become one of the more popular choices for watersports - there's jet boats, a PADI dive centre, kayaks and good snorkelling offshore, plus a lively backpacker atmosphere with air-conditioned dorms. The downside is the beach, which is narrow and eroding away although a seawall has been built to create a small beach for sunbathing.
