The islands of the Mamanucas are rich with coral reefs and a vast variety of amazing tropical fish. Likuliku Lagoon and Malolo Island are surrounded by a fringing coral reef making snorkeling ideal. If you want to venture further afield and explore other snorkel sites, we offer daily trips to various sites nearby and sometimes you may even end up in an undiscovered part of the islands, seeing amazing marine life for the first time.


Within the immediate area surrounding Likuliku and Malolo Island, there is a marine reserve and fishing is strictly forbidden. However, we do offer a variety of fishing excursions to areas where keen anglers can troll for Tuna or perhaps a Giant Trevally. Also, Dog Tooth Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Rainbow Runner, Barracuda, Coral Trout, Scad and Billfish are just some of the fish that swim our waters.

Walking Trails

There are several walking trails varying in length and difficulty from the resort. Our walks currently include Jona’s Lookout with magnificent views over the resort and island waters, the Ridge Track to Naroba Point and also the walk along nearby Naivaka Beach.

Fijian Crested Iguana Experience

Join the Resort Environment Manager for a presentation on the history of the Iguana in Fiji, on Malolo Island and specifically on the Resort leases; how the species has been saved on Malolo, and what has and is being done to ensure the survival of its habitat and other biodiversity. This will be followed by a personalised tour of the Resort’s Iguana Sanctuary, Breeding Cages, and Dry Forest Habitat.

Village Trip

Here you will experience how our indigenous land owners live at the local villages of Yaro and Solevu by taking the “Shell Village Tour”. Solevu is also the home of the Paramount Chief of the Mamanuca Islands.

Island Hopping

Often the best time to be on the water is in the early morning before the wind picks up and it is certainly the best time for an early morning island hopping trip. We take you past Castaway Island, Mana Island, Matamanoa Island and finally MonuRiki Island where we stop for a swim, snorkel and walk along the beach. MonuRiki Island is one of the most stunningly beautiful islands in the Mamanucas and is where the famous “Cast Away” movie with Tom Hanks was filmed. The trip then heads north around Monu Island, west round the top of Yanuya Island, past Tokoriki Island before turning south for the return trip past Tavua Island and finally stopping at Mana Sand Bank for another swim and snorkel, before heading back for a late breakfast at the resort.

Sunset Cruise

Malolo is referred to by the local Fijians as “Na Siga e dromu I Malolo”. Translated this means “That place where the sun comes to rest.” The sunsets from Likuliku can be quite magnificent and what better way to enjoy the scene than from one of our sunset cruises whilst sipping a glass of sparkling wine, enjoying Chef’s canapés and listening to the sounds of one of our Likuliku serenaders as you sail around the island.

Mociu Private Island

In 2018 we secured the lease of Mociu Island (pronounced “Moor-thiew”). A private, tiny, uninhabited island only 15 minutes boat ride from the resort, Mociu is a protected nature reserve and the waters and reef around it have been declared a marine “na tabu” by the Paramount Chief of the Mamanucas – meaning no form of fishing or shell fish collecting is allowed.


Close to the Resort are some of the world’s most famous surf breaks found along the southern part of the Malolo Barrier Reef. We offer surf tours to Cloudbreak (home to the Fiji Pro annual surfing championships), Wilkes Passage, Desperation and Restaurants. Daily trips can be taken from Likuliku for F$125pp (min. of 3 people). Bookings can be made on arrival at the Resort with the Activities team.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort Fiji

Once upon a time across the bluest of oceans, an island was born of lava and sand  an untouched paradise whose heart was a turquoise lagoon of unimaginable beauty and tranquility. The first visitors came and explored. To honour the magic of the place, they named it “Likuliku”, meaning “calm waters”. Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a haven of subtle luxury for adults only and reserved exclusively for guests in-residence at the resort. A wilderness island retreat, it is the first and only resort in Fiji with authentic over water-bures, in a natural ocean lagoon, surrounded by a protected marine sanctuary.

It is a unique and special place amidst a pristine environment, designed with integrity to Fijian cultural values, traditional designs and architecture, and is embraced by the renowned warmth of the Fijian people. From the water it looks like an ancient village, so traditional is the style. The beating heart of the Resort is a magnificent building in the design of a Fijian canoe house. Surrounded by sprawling ceilings, hand-woven thatch and an exotic mix of natural materials and modern elements, Likuliku Lagoon Resort embodies the richness of an ancient culture with vibrant present-day lifestyle touches.

The Fijian name for our rooms is “bure”. There are 45 traditionally designed and styled bures, luxuriously appointed and all with views of the beautiful Likuliku Lagoon and ocean. Each bure has been built with authentic architecture, natural materials and traditional features including local Vesi (hardwood) floors, individual, hand-carved wooden window pelmets and hand-woven “magi magi” (woven coconut husk) art and, Soga (palm) internal thatching woven by authentic artisans from the remote Lau Group of Islands. Along the beachfront are 35 bures with direct beach and Lagoon access. Eighteen bures have their own private plunge pool, and all beachfront bures have a personal daybed retreat, and private courtyard with secluded outdoor shower. The 10 unique and spacious over-water bures sit majestically above the coral reef and allow access from their own private balcony straight into the ocean.
