Malevu is located on the east coast of Naviti (directly across the island from the Manta Ray back packers Resort) in the central Yasawa Islands. Your host Toye meets you on the beach at Manta Ray Resort. The trip involves two boats - the catamaran and the local boat.

Please note the local boat does not travel on a Sunday.

It is important to note that the trip by catamaran from Nadi to Manta Ray Resort leaves at about 7am from Nadi and returns from Manta Ray mid-afternoon arriving back at Nadi at about 7pm. Unless you are arriving very early or departing very late you should allow for a night in Nadi to account for the departure and arrival times of the boat.

Guests staying at a number of resorts in the Yasawas:

We recommend that you purchase a seven day BulaFiji pass on the yellow "Awesome Adventure" catamaran that leaves Denarau Harbour in Nadi at 9.15am each morning. The cost is F$235 per person. The pass allows you access on and off the catamaran in the Yasawas at no cost for the seven day period. We recommend that our Fiji based travel agents book your catamaran tickets once you have made your homestay booking - they will contact you directly by email to discuss this with you once your accommodation to Malevu has been finalised.

You get off the catamaran at Manta Ray Resort on Naviti Island where your host, Toye, will meet you on the beach and take you by a smaller boat for the hour long trip to Malevu. The boat can take up to ten people - the trip costs a minimum of F$100 each way for groups up to three, an additional F$25 per person for larger groups - the money is to be paid to Toye. (Petrol costs F$20 per litre on the Yasawa Islands).

Note: the local boat trip takes about 45 minutes

Guests only staying at Malevu Village:

If you are only visiting the village of Malevu in the Yasawas then it is better to purchase a one way ticket for F$90 on the catamaran from Denarau. We recommend that our Fiji based travel agents book your catamaran tickets once you have made your homestay booking - they will contact you directly by email to discuss this with you once your accommodation to Malevu has been finalised.
