The coral islands comprise twelve tiny cays, surrounded by a shallow lagoon. These islands seldom rise more than 5m above sea-level, are covered with light scrub vegetation and until recently were all uninhabited. Apart from the resorts that are now built on them, there’s not an awful lot to distinguish one from another, except for Namotu and Tavarua in the southeastern tip of the Malolo Barrier Reef, which have world-class reef surfing. The northern coral islands are the most accessible, with transfers from both Port Denarau and Vuda Marina in less than twenty minutes.
