Fijian cuisine is heavily influenced by the surrounding oceans. The basic elements of Fijian food consist of rice, cassava, coconut, and fish. The migration of Indians to Fiji began in the 1870s when thousands arrived to work in the sugarcane industry. As a result, a distinctive style of ‘Fijian-Indo’ cooking evolved, and food in Fiji now features elements of colorful curries and spices.

Located in the Yasawa Islands of Fiji, Oarsman’s Bay Lodge offers our guests a wide range of relaxing and adventurous activities.

Those that want an authentic Fijian experience can visit the local school or village, and all guests are even welcome to join the congregation at the local church on Sunday (a true Fijian experience like no other).

The school visit is a real highlight, and a visit to the village during the week gives you a glimpse of real Fiji island life. And be sure to take some small change with you for some beautiful souvenirs from the local handicraft ladies.
Fiji is one of the best holiday destinations if you want a place to relax. And contrary to the hustle and bustle of the main island of Viti Levu, you will revel in the easy-going pace of life that the Yasawa Islands have to offer.

You will no doubt be accustomed to ‘Fiji Time’. ‘Fiji Time’ is not about slow service, but rather appreciating that we don’t need to race through life. It is appreciating every moment and your connection with loved ones and taking moments to feel grateful and happy for it. It is a part of the DNA of the Fijian people and is highly contagious. Within a few hours, you will find yourself walking slower, breathing deeper, and finding clarity in the tranquil surroundings.

The remote location of Nacula Island means the culture and traditions of the Fijian people are strong. Unlike the cultural ‘shows’ staged for the many travelers that do not make it off the main island of Fiji, on the contrary, life on Nacula Island is simple, harmonious with nature, and uncomplicated.

You can visit an active, authentic, and traditional Fijian village and see how the people of Nacula live today. Learn Fijian crafts such as basket weaving and coconut husking, and if you come at the right time, you might even get to experience a traditional lovo (food cooked in the ground).
