Kevin Rotsaert manages Skyward Industries in Legalega Industrial Subdivision in Nadi.

He was born in Belgium but has been traveling since he was young.

In 2012, Kevin and his family decided to make Fiji their first permanent home and work to become part of the local community.

“I run Skyward Industries, a local company based in Nadi dedicated to creating new and exciting products, services, and technologies,” said Mr Rotsaert.

“Over the past eight years, I have had the privilege to visit most corners of Fiji, exploring the many hidden gems our islands have to offer.

“When I get the chance, I enjoy exploring new parts of Fiji, particularly the interior and places less travelled.

“In the future I hope to see more public resting places along beautiful locations around Fiji, including public viewing points designed for people to park and sit down.

“I saw great examples of this in Hawaii and I believe that Fiji has so much more to show-off, given the opportunity to access some of these locations.”

What’s one place you’d take every visitor to Fiji and why?

Fiji is known for its islands, coconut trees and white sandy beaches.

However, there is so much to see within the interior of Fiji and other remote locations around the country.

One of my all-time favourite places I recommend family and friends to visit is the Nabalasere Waterfalls near Viti Levu Bay, near Rakiraki.

Here visitors can enjoy some of the many wonders of Fiji, including one of the largest waterfalls in Fiji (my personal favourite), a wonderful and welcoming village and a great trek through a bit of jungle.

Despite it being a long drive from the West, it is well worth it.

What’s your secret backyard favourite spot?

The Nausori Highlands. For many years I would drive up almost every weekend and have a picnic surrounded by stunning views, a nice breeze, and the quiet sounds of nature.

Although a little more popular now, it is still a fantastic drive and location, well worth for most people to go and enjoy.

What’s your favourite place in Fiji for a pie/coffee?

I very much enjoy having a coffee or snack at Eat Greek, which recently took over from another restaurant before it, located at the top of the Ramada.

I enjoy great views and this location has one of the best views of the Nadi Bay, while being able to enjoy refreshments.

Whenever I can, I try to enjoy the stunning views Fiji offers, even with a meal.

What’s one Fiji spot on the top of your bucket list?

Vanuabalavu and other Lau Islands.

I have had the opportunity to visit most other places in Fiji, but not this far.

It is at the top of my list of places I would love to visit these amazing outer islands and their people.
