Please email us to obtain information. Visitors are unable to come while we re build after hurricanes and reform our structure. You fly into Nadi International Airport and a daily catamaran goes straight to our island (at Long Beach) from Port Denarau (very close to Nadi) or a local village boat from Lautoka (Sugar City). Come as a guest or voluntourist first; you must contribute financially for fuel, food, and other basic supplies (the food is cooked, and served)
Lodging is included and is in a traditional one room cottage right on the beach or in a large tent (cottages may be saved for community members). Lodging is very limited so please contact us in advance for visits.
Open to new Members: No
some Financial commitment is necessary…too many indigent people want to sponge off the hardworking community. Please be prepared to make appropriate contributions or don’t contact us.
organic food, Music, Fun
This quiet paradise is powered by the sun’s radiance and human power, where there are no roads and most certainly no cars. We have ample rainwater storage (10,000 litres, a huge organic plantation, boats, and a community dining room with excellent local chefs. Small cottages (Fijian bures) and large tents shelter locals and visitors comfortably.
Please visit for a few weeks or a few months stay, as a voluntourist.
After a one month trial period you may be invited to enjoy three months and with approval you may be invited to stay up to one-year. You can also be an annual visitor, supporter or long-term voluntourist. Currently we aren’t welcoming new members or visitors due to structural changes in the community
Imagine a pristine beach of golden sands. A place where music and singing are shared joyfully. Fijians value family, peace and cooperative sharing and welcome you like family!
Organic agriculture, natural building, and sustainable energy empower the villagers to share their enduring lifestyle. Operated by native Fijians and extended family, now joined by sustainability educators and other non-Fijians. Currently we are not welcoming additional visitors or members. This cross-cultural alliance supports traditional Fijian culture while teaching sustainability in an organic setting, creating a model and protecting the natural environment, by creating a sustainable economy for the friendly Fijians. This works.
Native music and ceremony create a deeper cross-cultural experience.
Visitors relax in peace
Assist in gardens, daily life or on a community project. Learn valuable skills and traditional life-ways with a very, very low carbon footprint.
To sustain this reality and vision, these friendly Fijians welcome your needed support rather than overly impacting the natural world. In this fragile ecosystem we can help sustain this pristine tropical wonderland.
Financial assistance and donations are deeply appreciated.
Imagine a place where children are safe…a place to swim amongst coral reefs of amazing diversity. Imagine a place that sustains us spiritually. All who join us in this island paradise are touched by the local’s gentle ways, by the beauty and peace.
