Paintball at Sonaisali Island Resort Fiji, What?

Let’s fly all the way to Fiji to play paintball! Okay, that wasn’t exactly the case but we did end up having a paintball adventure while spending some time in Fiji. We arrived at Sonaisali Island Resort on our final day and were bummed to receive such a warm welcome and beautiful room in a quiet resort that was absolutely gorgeous, but not have the time to enjoy it.

Tao Village Visit – Cannibals and Caves of Fiji

It was a last minute schedule change that took us to the Oho Caves in Fiji. We were looking to squeeze in one more adventure during our stay on the main island and Sarah of Tourism Fiji had just the thing. The Tao Village has recently allowed tourists into their village for visits and their sacred Oho Caves are the star attraction. We took an hour-long drive from the Outrigger Lagoon Resort on the Coral Coast through a very wet yet green countryside on a very bumpy gravel road. Our driver Vincent told us that he was to take the old van, as the roads were too rough for the newer models.

Sigatoka Jet Boat Safari

For a special day in Fiji, the Sigatoka Jet Boat Safari is highly recommended. With thrills and spills, culture and education it is the most well rounded trip on the main island.We didn’t have this excursion planned during our FijiMe tour courtesy of Tourism Fiji, but when we arrived at Outrigger Lagoon, they suggested we go on it, as it is their number one tour.
