Activities

We offer a daily-changing schedule of activities, including complimentary non-motorised watersports such as stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing and wind surfing, plus complimentary snorkeling equipment.

In addition, there is a myriad of land and sea tours and activities available in and around the surrounding Mamanuca Islands.

Snorkelling

The islands of the Mamanucas are rich with coral reefs and a vast variety of amazing tropical fish. Likuliku Lagoon and Malolo Island are surrounded by a fringing coral reef making snorkeling ideal.

If you want to venture further afield and explore other snorkel sites, we offer daily trips to various sites nearby and sometimes you may even end up in an undiscovered part of the islands, seeing amazing marine life for the first time.

Fishing

Within the immediate area surrounding Likuliku and Malolo Island, there is a marine reserve and fishing is strictly forbidden. However, we do offer a variety of fishing excursions to areas where keen anglers can troll for Tuna or perhaps a Giant Trevally.  Also, Dog Tooth Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Rainbow Runner, Barracuda, Coral Trout, Scad and Billfish are just some of the fish that swim our waters.

In line with our Sustainable Tourism Policy we do not actively fish for Marlin or Sail Fish. In the event that one is caught it is our Policy to “catch and release”.

Walking Trails

There are several walking trails varying in length and difficulty from the resort. Our walks currently include Jona’s Lookout with magnificent views over the resort and island waters, the Ridge Track to Naroba Point and also the walk along nearby Naivaka Beach.

Village Trip

Here you will experience how our indigenous land owners live at the local villages of Yaro and Solevu by taking the “Shell Village Tour”. Solevu is also the home of the Paramount Chief of the Mamanuca Islands.

Or why not experience a traditional Fijian church service available to guests each Sunday. Fiji is a multi-religious country represented by all major religions. The majority of Fijians are Christians and on Malolo Island there is a Methodist service each Sunday at Yaro Village where the highlight is to experience the exquisite voices of the local Fijian choir.

Island Hopping

Often the best time to be on the water is in the early morning before the wind picks up and it is certainly the best time for an early morning island hopping trip. We take you past Castaway Island, Mana Island, Matamanoa Island and finally MonuRiki Island where we stop for a swim, snorkel and walk along the beach. MonuRiki Island is one of the most stunningly beautiful islands in the Mamanucas and is where the famous “Cast Away” movie with Tom Hanks was filmed. The trip then heads north around Monu Island, west round the top of Yanuya Island, past Tokoriki Island before turning south for the return trip past Tavua Island and finally stopping at Mana Sand Bank for another swim and snorkel, before heading back for a late breakfast at the resort.

Sunset Cruise

Malolo is referred to by the local Fijians as “Na Siga e dromu I Malolo”. Translated this means “That place where the sun comes to rest.” The sunsets from Likuliku can be quite magnificent and what better way to enjoy the scene than from one of our sunset cruises whilst sipping a glass of sparkling wine, enjoying Chef’s canapés and listening to the sounds of one of our Likuliku serenaders as you sail around the island.

Sandbank/Beach Picnic

A very special activity but unfortunately one that isn’t always available due to tides and prevailing weather conditions, is our Picnic Lunch to a local Sandbank or private island beach.  These Sandbanks are only accessible at mid to high tide and is a new island in the making. The surrounding waters are pristine and clear and there is great swimming and snorkelling. The activities team will set you up with umbrellas for shade and your picnic lunch.

Please note that Likuliku Lagoon Resort does not have exclusive use of these sandbanks.

Adventure

For the more adventurous, why not try a Jet Ski Safari to the nearby island of MonuRiki or a perhaps a Parasail around the Malolo waters.  We also offer water skiing and wake boarding.

Surfing

Close to the Resort are some of the world’s most famous surf breaks found along the southern part of the Malolo Barrier Reef.   We offer surf tours to Cloudbreak (home to the Fiji Pro annual surfing championships), Wilkes Passage, Desperation and Restaurants.   Daily trips can be taken from Likuliku for F$125pp (min. of 3 people).  Bookings can be made on arrival at the Resort with the Activities team.

Wet Weather Program

We do occasionally get rainy days in Fiji. But this won’t stop you from enjoying a walk in the rain or even a swim or a snorkel. Alternatively take the time to catch up on some reading or watch a DVD in the comfort of your room. We also run a wet weather program usually in the Dua Tale bar. Here you can join the activities team as they demonstrate the many ways to tie a Sulu/Sarong, learn to weave baskets and hats from palm fronds, learn some Fijian and hear about the Fijian culture and some of the famous island legends while sampling a bowl of Kava (Yaqona).

Meke and Lovo

Friday nights be entertained by members of staff who will perform the traditional Meke (dance). Here you will experience traditional stories through dance and song.   This is followed by dinner of the traditional Lovo (earth oven feast) and South Pacific BBQ.

Kava Ceremony

The drinking of Kava is an important Fijian tradition. On Monday evenings, join the activities team for a traditional Kava ceremony at Masima Bar. Learn about the origins of Kava, the plant and its attributes and the protocols surrounding the ceremony itself.
