Navini Island, Mamanuca Islands, Fiji

Mariella and I left the Paul Gauguin and headed with an organized taxi to a marina at Vuda Point. We took the 30 minute ride to Navini Island.

The island is simple, elegant and comfortable paradise.

The staff is so nice and the serene island environment just lends to taking it easy. Our bure is fabulous and right on the beach. I took a snorkel in low tide and quickly realized that I would need to wait until more water came in before going later that afternoon after some island “rest”. Mariella took a tidal pool walk and saw amazing things including white speckled eel.

I did snorkel later that afternoon and was not disappointed. Titan trigger fish with his assistants was posing for me. No real fear of me.

Lovely dinner with some very nice Aussies. Guess who we talked about. There are about 20 or so guests on the island with no day trippers. Great sleep with a lot of wind and cool. Navini offers a complimentary morning activity and I went on a snorkel trip away from Navini and will share this pictures.

Mariella went snorkeling with her late in the afternoon.

Yes sharks.

More later. Peace out. Namaste Tres
