What is your favourite secret backyard spot?
The area behind the Naviti Resort is my favourite secret backyard.

It’s really a quiet place there and you can have a picnic in the small island near Naviti Resort.

You can also go for jogs with fresh air along the road.

You will have a view of the beautiful island beside Naviti Resort and mountain and it is totally free.

What is your favourite place in Fiji for a pie/coffee?
Bulaccino Fiji café in Namaka, Nadi, Gloria Jean’s in Suva and Lautoka and Gazebo Restaurant in Maui Bay are a few of my favourite places for coffee.

Bulaccino is a great place to have delicious coffee with the flourishing green plants decorating the café.

Additionally, Gazebo Restaurant is an amazing spot to stop by and have some snacks and coffee during a long drive.

Bonus is that you could also get a view of Maui Bay

 

What is the one Fiji spot on the top of your bucket list?
Sawa i-Lau Caves in the Yasawa islands is on the top of my bucket list.

I find cave myths and legends very interesting and fascinating.

I heard there are majestic views of the caves when diving in the crystal-clear water.
