The Mamanuca (pronounced Mah-mah-noo-tha) islands are
essentially volcanic outcrops pushed up from the ocean floor in a
gigantic earthquake thousands of years ago. They lie in a
majestic arc, only a short distance from the mainland of Viti Levu,
curving to the north-west, and almost touching the Yasawa chain.
There are 13 islands in all, not counting those covered by the
Pacific at high tide and they all share in common pristine white
sandy beaches, waving palms, crystal blue waters and, at night, the
cooling influence of the trade winds.
From the air you can see that the Mamanucas group is in fact two
clusters known as Mamanuca-i-ra and Mamanuca-i-cake. Within the
Mamanucas is the Malolo group, three miles inside the barrier reef,
extending in a curve for about 75 miles.
A number of resort islands are scattered throughout the Malolo
group, each offering comfortable casual bure (Fijian style cottage)
accommodation, a relaxing holiday atmosphere and a range of water
activities. There are boat excursions, fishing trips and water
sports including water skiing, wind surfing, snorkelling, diving,
sailing, speed boat riding, and coral viewing. Malololailai is the
centre for most tourism to and from the Mamanucas. It has safe
anchorage, a cosmopolitan community of Fijians and Indians and an
airstrip serviced regularly from Nadi.
