How Many Places Have You Visited So Far In Fiji? 
I have been to Lautoka, Nadi, Sigatoka and Suva of course. I also loved the Coral Coast – Maui Bay especially. I’ve been to Rakiraki once and found it is a very beautiful place!

Pacific Harbour is also one of my favourite places to go – you have the beach, the river and the beautiful waterfalls. Also a few of the outer islands which are so pretty!

However, my absolute favourite place is my home in Saweni, Lautoka.

 

What Is The One Spot You Would Take Every Visitor To, And Why?
Yanuca island. It’s a beautiful, isolated island near Beqa.

It has been my favourite island among all I have been to so far in Fiji. The water is so clear, the marine life is so full, and the colour of the sea is of vibrant turquoise colour which contrasts perfectly with the green untouched forest.

What Is Your Favourite Secret Backyard Spot?
My backyard favourite spot will have to be my home.

We live on an island basically, so I have access to the sea all the time which I absolutely love. We go out fishing, wake boarding or just out for swims almost every weekend with my family.

We’ve previously harvested oysters and now have managed to plant more. We have also caught some crabs and fish right by the mangroves which I think is pretty cool.

It is really the simple things that make me happy.

 

What Is Your Favourite Place In Fiji For A Pie/Coffee?
My favourite spot to have a coffee/ pie would be the Eco Café which is located along the Coral Coast right out of Sigatoka.

With the friendliest customer service, this local business serves their customers with home-based organic products and the best coffees.

 

What Is The One Fiji Spot On The Top Of Your Bucket List?  
I have always wanted to visit Taveuni or Savusavu.

The pictures I have seen of these two places are just too beautiful.

One day, for sure I will cross it off my bucket list.
