You're Going to Love Savusavu

Regarded by many as Fiji's "undiscovered paradise", Savusavu is a place to escape from stress and worry, as well as one of the finest diving and snorkeling centers in the Pacific (which is saying something).

Located on Fiji's second largest island, Vanua Levu, the resort is tucked away from international flight routes and doesn't attract hordes of tourists - just those in the know who appreciate its understated, idyllic charms.

The only time to really avoid is cyclone season, which runs from November to late March. Any time from April through to July should ensure fine weather, though the resort will be at its busiest (which still doesn't feel too hectic).

How to Get Around Savusavu

The Cost of Living in Savusavu

Shopping

If you're hunting for distinctive jewelry, Savusavu is a wonderful place to be, because J. Hunter Pearls create masterpieces from locally harvested black pearls. And handicraft bargains should also be easy to come by at Savusavu Farmer's Market, where craft sellers offer masi cloth and handwoven baskets on a daily basis. Look out for handicrafts sellers outside the Copra Shed Marina as well.

Supermarkets and Food Stores

The market is often a great place to purchase fresh seafood, but for most essentials, supermarkets like MH Paradise will have everything you need. Expect slightly higher prices than in Suva or Nadi but nothing too excessive. 12 eggs should come to around F$5, while large bottles of water will cost about F$2.50.

Where to Eat in Savusavu

Savusavu isn't a world-famous dining destination, but it's a place where you can easily eat well. Some of the best seafood in Fiji is served up at Surf and Turf, which is a wonderful place to munch on lobster from the lagoon, with the Pacific Ocean lapping a few yards away. Spicier delicacies are available at Taste of Hidden Paradise Restaurant (which is actually really easy to find), while Savusavu Wok is an accomplished Chinese eatery. Prices aren't high at between F$20-40 per head.
