We began our first Fijian adventure arriving at Nadi Airport to be greeted by machine gun totting soldiers and blinding heat. We spent just one night at a local hotel and then it was off the next morning to Maolo island. The boat trip was a fun experience and the boat boys kept wanting to ply me with beer….more beer, more beer they kept asking. The island was just perfect and the accommodation in a Bure right on the beach was perfect.
We enjoyed everything the island had to offer but it was the stunning water that really captivated us along with the opportunity to kayak and float around the bays and snorkel the coral reefs nearby.
