Our Location

locationnewMatana Beach Resort and Dive Kadavu are located only 10 - 15 minutes by boat from Kadavu airport. The Resort is set in lush tropical gardens adjoining a beautiful sandy beach called Matana, which in Kadavu dialect means all tide sandy beach.

On one side of the resort are the villages of Navautu and Drue and behind are rolling hills with walking trails which have great views.

As the resort faces due west, the resort is more sheltered from winds and adverse weather than other locations of the island, and the sunsets over the sea can be spectacular.


location2Kadavu Island is located approx. 100 km (60 miles) south of Suva, the capital of Fiji. It is the fourth largest of the 300 odd islands in Fiji and is still unaffected by major tourism.

The island is surrounded by coral reefs with magnificent palm fringed beaches and rugged terrain. At the southwestern end lies Nabukulevu, an extinct volcano, also known as Kong Mountain.

The length is approx. 80 km (50 miles) and the width varies. The population of some 12,000 people still live quite traditionally in 72 villages scattered throughout the island. As there are few road, transport is mainly by boat.

Vunisea, the only town on the island, is located near the airport and boasts of a post office, hospital, police station and boarding school, along with a handful of small stores.
