Lose yourself on Barefoot Island

Barefoot Island - known traditionally as Drawaqa Island - lies in the Southern Yasawa Islands of Fiji. The stunning coral gardens right off the beach are some of the best in the Fijian isles. Barefoot Island offers a tranquil environment with just the sound of the waves gently touching the shore. The Lodge is the perfect destination for budget and alternative travellers searching for a special getaway.

Within this tranquil environment there are a wealth of ways to fill your day - if you're so inclined: spectacular snorkelling and diving, nature walks, visits to nearby Fijian villages, kayaking, and the opportunity to swim with Manta rays all await you!
