Turtle Island Fiji

Turtle Island Fiji is found in an archipelago in the western part of the Fiji Islands known as the Yasawa Group. Before 1987, the entire archipelago was totally closed to any type of land-based tourists. Cruise ships were only allowed to slowly float past this paradise and have passengers wishing they could run barefoot on Turtle Island beaches.

Today, Turtle Island Fiji commonly known as Nanuya Levu is home of one of the most exclusive yet famous resorts in all of Fiji. In the beginning, Richard Evanson purchased Turtle Island Fiji in 1972. He was the only resident on the entire 500 acres in the beautiful South Pacific. Evanson restored and built bures, which are thatch-roofed bungalows traditional in the Fiji Islands. Today, couples, but only up to 14, can enjoy a Turtle Island vacation and reap the rewards of all the work that Evanson put into restoring this paradise of Turtle Island Fiji including the replanting of 300,000 trees, protecting the coral reefs, the mangroves and constructing new wetlands.

A Turtle Island vacation is known for a time of romance, relaxation, and adventure. If you love beaches and relaxing then you will feel at home or paradise with 14 private Turtle Island beaches. From your own private bure, you will be able to enjoy your own Turtle Island beach or wander off and find other beaches to explore.
