Somosomo Strait (Fijian for 'good water') on the doorstep of Paradise Taveuni, has strong tidal currents, which provide a constant flow of nutrients, idyllic for soft corals and diverse fish life. Taveuni is world renowned for the spectacular soft coral sites such as Rainbow Reef, a fringing reef almost 32km long on the southwest corner of Vanua Levu and easily accessed from Paradise Taveuni Resort. Not only the best Fiji scuba diving, but one of best scuba diving vacation sites in the world. If you haven't dived Taveuni, you must put it on your 'to do' list!
Dive sites in Taveuni are exciting and varied with sheer reef walls from 1000m to the surface, shallow sunlit coral gardens and current-flushed channels. You can even find "gravel groveling" and "muck diving" in protected bays on the Taveuni coast.
So expect to be amazed by Taveuni underwater treasures, with 1500 species of fishes including dozen of rare or endemic species, 1000 known species of invertebrates and thousands more discoveries predicted.
Excellent diving and snorkelling is available right of the resort's private marina, as well as kayaking and safe ocean swimming.
