A fantastic way of seeing the remote side of the northern Yasawas is to join one of the kayaking trips run by South Sea Ventures (02 8901 3287 in Australia, southernseaventures.com; 7 nights for A$2130). Group trips run between May and October, and involve between three and four hours of paddling a day in either single or twin sea-kayaks. On the eight-day trip, five days are spent paddling between Matacawalevu and Sawa-i-Lau, camping on beaches in two-man tents. Trips are equally suitable for novice or experienced kayakers, although a reasonable level of fitness is expected.
