Independent review of Tivua Island in the Mamanuca Islands of Fiji
Tivua Island Fiji is a small coral cay surrounded by a white sandy beach with just two simple wooden cottages. The island is used as a day trip destination by day, and offers absolute solitude at night. This is a wonderful down to earth experience on a beautiful island that takes just eight minutes to walk around.

Both bures are simple wooden cottages and are absolute beachfront, on either sides of the island about 60 paces from each other. The cottages have high ceilings with a queen and two single beds, all with mosquito nets, and a private cold-water bathroom with shower. Furnishings are simple and some what out dated but it is the early morning and late afternoon serenity that makes this place special. Both cottages have a wooden deck on the beach edge with fantastic sea views
Meals are cooked by the island care taker, Lai - there's a large kitchen and supplies for the day guests - and afterwards, Lai will mix Yaqona drink and you can sit down and talk under the stars. Electricity is by generator and is on only between 6pm and 10pm - Kerosene lamps are provided.
Snorkelling equipment and kayaks are complementary (snorkelling is average in the lagoon), and as with the day guests, drinks including local beer and wine are free between 11.30am and 3pm - once the day guests depart you pay for drinks..
