Mamanuca is made up of about twenty small islands on the western coast of Vitu Levu. The islands can be reached by air in about ten minutes or by ferry, which takes about an hour from the mainland. On arrival you will see a lagoon formed between the Great Sea Reef and the mainland and a shoreline edged by white, sandy, reef-fringed beaches. There are lots of hotels in the region to cater for all budgets and tastes. One of the islands was used to film 'Castaway' with Tom Hanks. Diving is typified by reefs, islands and islets, with calm, coral reefs for beginners. Life includes dolphins, sharks, manta rays, turtles and tropical reef fish.
