Beyond Daku Bay lies the heavily indented coastline of east Kadavu, difficult to access other than by sea. Kavala Bay on the north coast and Korolevu Bay on the south coast form great basins surrounded by steep mountains. Their river estuaries are lined in mangrove forests and you can explore these incredibly peaceful environments by kayak. However, it’s the underwater spectacle of the Astrolabe Reef that attracts most visitors here; the reef hugs the southeast side of Kadavu all the way to Galoa Harbour and extends 40km north in open sea. Divers are well catered for at East Kadavu’s dive resorts.
