Responsible tourism: Diving holiday in Fiji
Much of the environment in Fiji is fragile, and it is imperative that both the local population and visitors to the islands are aware of the irreparable damage which can be caused to eco-systems such as the reefs. We try wherever possible to recommend guides, activities and accommodation which demonstrate a clear commitment to responsible and sustainable tourism principles.
In the Mamanuca Islands we recommend Tokoriki Island Resort, a founding member of the Mamanuca Environment Society, who strive to improve and protect the local environment through awareness and education. MES contributes to the community in a number of different ways, from education programmes in schools to clean-up campaigns in surrounding villages. Tokoriki has also initiated the 'giant clam regeneration project', reintroducing three different species of giant clams which had previously disappeared to the waters around the island.
In the north, we can recommend resorts on the edge of the Bouma National Heritage Park, or adjacent to the best dive sites, depending on your personal interests. All the properties we use have a strong eco-focus, and will ensure you can spend time engaged in local cultural activities or exploring the natural environment.
On the ground in Fiji we use an excellent, local, family-owned agent who demonstrate care for the environment, preservation of their culture and commitment to the community. As part of an on-going project they have helped create townships which provide new, cyclone resistant housing with running water where previously there had been inadequate housing. Every visitor is greeted on arrival with a true Fijian welcome, and looked after throughout the duration of their stay in Fiji.
