Whether you’re well-read or well-travelled, you will have heard of Robinson Crusoe, and the island of the same name is just as extraordinary as the novel.
This otherworldly island, like the rest of Fiji, enjoys warm, mild weather all year round, with the hot season between November and April, and the wet season lasting from May – October. But there’s never a bad time to visit Robinson Crusoe Island, thanks to its gorgeous environment, array of activities and welcoming resort.
Just 10 minutes from the mainland of Viti Levu by boat, if you stay on Robinson Crusoe Island, you can do as much or as little as you please. Its entire coastline is fringed with coral reefs and sandy beaches, and the island boasts traditional thatched bures, exotic fruits, freshly-caught fish and locals that will welcome you onto their shores with music and dancing. Typical activities – many of which are free – include snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, walking, dancing, jewellery making and relaxing on the white sands. There’s also a bonfire every evening and a traditional Kava ceremony. Turns out island life really is all it’s cracked up to be.
The location of Robinson Crusoe Island makes it so easy to take a trip elsewhere and be back in time for dinner. Go on an off-road safari to Naihehe Cave, meet the parrots, reptiles and fish of Kula Eco Park, try your hand at kite surfing, sail the waters by boat or soar through the rainforest on a zipline – there are many opportunities for adventure from Robinson Crusoe.
A resort island, accommodation is affordable and facilities impressive. From budget-friendly dorm accommodation to private bures and lodges, you can expect a high level of comfort and cleanliness with the opportunity to meet new people if you’re up for it. The fish is fresh, the fruits and vegetables are bought from a local village supplier and the meat comes from their own butchery. You can also take advantage of the Wreck Bar on the beach, serving cold beer, wine, cocktails and water for easy refreshment. There’s even Wi-Fi so you can get in touch with those that aren’t lucky enough to be out here.
