The Destination

Taveuni Island is very unique & located in Fiji's far north. Taking a 1hr25m internal flight or overnight boat trip you will end up on Fiji's garden island. With it's unique flora and fauna, the island is about 45km long and 15km wide with Fiji's Des Voeux peak, the small island nations highest mountain creates steep run off, untouched rainforests, over 600 waterfalls, the international dateline and the only World Heritage NP in Fiji. We work closely with local villagers, making sure they benefit from kiteboarding activities thus maintaining good relationships & giving our clients the opportunity to enjoy Meke's with villagers venturing inside the village & local schools for a real cultural experience. Weather - The weather in this region of Fiji is generally cooler than in the south due to the height of Des Voeux Peak, this more cloud cover and rain fall, pair this with the cool SE trade winds and the temperatures day and night are perfect. Expect a warm tropical climate and less rain during the windy winter months.

With famous dive sights like the Great White Wall in the Somo Somo Straights rated in the top 5 soft coral dives of the world, game fishing to get you hooked, over 600 waterfalls and inland rivers to discover with water so clean you can drink from the stream. Lavena Coastal tour is a must and leaves everyone blown away with waterfalls emerging from pristine rainforest, out over sheer cliffs and into the blue waters of the South Pacific Ocean.

Village tours and special dinner invitations with traditional cooking and dancing is a favorite, walk the out door markets or discover the locals wet n wild natural rock waterslide park.

What to bring

Kite and boards, bring your own or enquire about kites available. A two kite quiver (e.g. 12 & 9) and twin tip does the trick. The key is to pack light and leave unnecessary weight at home. But don't forget your rash vest/top, and booties are recommended as well. There is no kite shop on the island so a basic spares kit is essential.

Clothes - For the most part shorts, singlet’s and going out thongs is all you will need. We're not trying to impress anyone, unless you suffer from a serious bout of coldism you will only need one jumper and one pair of pants.

Getting There

Flights Generally speaking this time of year you can get flights Melbourne - Nadi (main island) return between AUD800 - 1000 keeping in mind an additional internal flight to Taveuni Island. This internal flight is partner airline to Fiji Airways, formally Air Pacific. It is important to note that if you fly Fiji Airways, also a QANTAS partner, that your international luggage allowance carries on. If you fly Virgin for example for the main leg you can expect to get be charged fairly heavily for excess luggage on the internal flight. It's important to book early as the internal flight often books out quickly. Melbourne - Nadi - Taveuni return with Fiji Airways is approximately $1100- $1200 expect to pay more during school holidays.

Luggage allowance It's important to check with your carrier. As a general rule the 23kg checked & 7Kg carry on rule applies, so a total 30kg. Most of the airlines are happy to spread the weight if you check in as a group or will allow the kite bag to be more than 23kg (no more than 32kg) if the carry on weighs less than 7kg. Expect to pay some excess for over size luggage even if you are within the 30kg limit.
