Leleuvia Island is a small coral island located south of Ovalau in a sea area known as Moturiki Passage. Leleuvia is the perfect place for anybody who wants to get away from the troubles of the world.
The island is a gem, without a doubt one of the most beautiful islands in all of Fiji. Long, endless white beaches surrounded by palm trees and the turquoise blue sea. The cliché of the south seas par excellence. That’s what most travelers to Fiji look for. Come, unwind, relax, swim, snorkel and dive in this pristine beautiful environment.
Leleuvia is an alluvial coral island that is just 17 acres in size and rises little more than two to three feet above the sea depending on the tide. The interior of the island is covered by jungle through which several paths lead for those who want to explore the interior.
At low tide you can walk around the island in about 20 minutes, that’s how big the island is. Leleuvia Island is what you imagine when you think of a South Pacific Island Paradise. Once there, you will find it very difficult to leave again.
What to do on Leleuvia Island
You don’t have to do anything, but if you feel for it you may relax on the beach and when you are hot enough just take a dip in the crystal clear waters. Snorkel, and see fish and coral just off the beach of the island, or join a boat trip out for an even better snorkeling or scuba diving trip to one of the reefs in Moturiki Passage.
Healthy, colorful hard, and soft coral reefs teeming with fish can be explored.
In the afternoons play a volleyball game with the locals or watch the sunset with a cold Fiji Bitter. After dinner join the staff around the Kawa bowl (Tanoa) and listen to their Fijian songs or sit around a bonfire on the beach with friends and watch the stars in a clear sky. You will never want to leave this island.
