Overview – A Journey Pacific ‘Best Dive’ Resort
A real Fiji Island experience awaits you at Matana Beach Resort, Kadavu’s longest established resort. You are invited to share the unspoilt beauty that Kadavu Island has to offer. Located only ten minutes by scenic boat ride from Vunisea airport, yet with no cars, no traffic, no shops, and a beautiful white sandy beach just steps away from your bure, this is just the place to chill out and enjoy the nature. Our spacious and comfrotable bures are set in lush tropical gardens, facing one of the top rated beaches. Kadavu Island is still untouched by major development, so you can experience the true Fijian lifestyle and culture along with the modern conveniences of the Resort. It’s a South Pacific dream location, for divers and non-divers alike. Our PADI dive operation, Dive Kadavu, is run from the resort premises, providing world-class diving with over 40 exclusive dive sites close-by. You can expect an abundance of brilliantly-colored soft and hard coral and tropical fish, endless swim-throughs and the chance to see Manta Rays, turtles, dolphins and sharks.
