Underwater highlights to be found at Rakiraki (either snorkelling or diving) include Bligh Water, famous for its colourful soft corals, critters, sharks, turtles and yet more soft coral.

A trip to Rakiraki involves a two hour drive along the northern coast of Viti Levu, taking in some glorious coastline and sites through some of Fiji’s least publiscised, yet most beautiful terrain. Sugar cane is grown in the valleys, cattle are raised in the highlands, whilst root crops, including yaqona (kava) are also cultivated here. Rakiraki is an area often said to portray Fijian patriotism. Many noted Fijian politicians have originated from here.
