|The most striking feature of Beqa Lagoon Resort is its seclusion. Only fifteen square kilometres, Beqa Island has no roads, no towns and only a few isolated villages scattered around the perimeter. The island is skirted by stretches of sandy beach laced with mysterious tide pools. We often spent hours before sunset picking up shells and broken coral along the beach and watching strange little starfish that move quickly using their legs like an octopus. |
Although the resort grounds are neatly groomed, colourful island critters still have free range. At dinner one night, a little green gecko no bigger than a dragonfly scurried up our neighbour\'s leg, sat and stared a bit, then scuttled away. At night crabs march across the lawn to the beach.
|Just behind the resort the land slopes gently upward into a tropical forest. Further into the forest one comes across a fresh water stream descending from a waterfall just about a mile from the resort . Here the thick jungle vegetation occasionally gives way to patches of sweet potatoes, pineapples and taro root, but all in all, the land remains pristine. Tropical flowers bloom everywhere, and the tables at the resort are always filled with fresh cuttings.|
If you hike a short way up the hillside, you will find yourself at the base of an impressive waterfall. After cooling off a bit in the pool you can hike further up the path. And right at sunset you hit the top of the trail where you can look out over the entire lagoon. With a little more ambition and time you could hike to the top of the mountain where you can see the entire island from one place.
|Surrounded by over 300 kilometres of spectacular coral, Beqa Lagoon is one of the worlds largest barrier reefs. Diving these calm protected waters is like exploring another world. The water is clear and warm, visibility is typically over 100 feet, currents are mild, and the water temperature stays a fairly constant 26.5 C. Many of the most spectacular dive sights are only a few minutes from shore, and if you stayed long enough, you could explore over 100 different sights! The Dive Masters at Beqa Lagoon have been diving in these waters since they were children and are some of the most caring people you ever meet. Our divers know every reef and coral head, and if you stay close they will show you some of the most intriguing creatures ever. Blue Ribbon Eels, Clown Triggers, Lion Fish, Leaf Scorpions, Reef Sharks and millions of colourful Anthias and Fusiliers all abound in these waters.|
|Surf the Fiji Pipeline! \'Voted one of the best two waves in Fiji.\' |
Powerful, fast developing world class left with prevailing offshore winds, Frigate Passage (also known as Fiji Pipeline) is located on the south western barrier reef of the island of Beqa, just a short distance from Beqa Lagoon Resort. Frigate Passage offers the ideal conditions that naturally generate these kind of world class waves. Come surf the Fiji Pipeline and live the island way without the crowds, stress, and traffic of the mainland.
