The Lau Group, made up of a few small islands in Fiji’s Far East, offer a glimpse of Fiji often not seen by tourists.
Mostly undeveloped, life here is simple and somewhat wild – there are no restaurants or hotels, and only two islands have guesthouses. If you’re prepared to venture off the beaten track you’ll get to experience Lau’s unique culture. If you want to see a place that’s utterly unspoiled, while still offering the traditional Fijian hospitality, then visiting the Lau Group is your chance.
The only two official places to stay in Lau are budget guesthouses on Vanua Balavu and Lakeba.
Lau has two small airstrips, and boats connect people between islands. There is no public transport.
