The Yasawa Group of islands are more grand in stature than the nearby Mamanucas but are less commercialised, making them popular with backpackers.
You won’t find any shops, banks or medical services here, but with so much natural beauty you’ll enjoy the break from civilisation. With gorgeous beaches, abundant sunshine and a range of backpacker resorts, this is the place to come for an affordable retreat in paradise.
There are a good range of Backpacker's available, often run by the islanders themselves. Increasingly, more upmarket resorts are springing up in the Yasawas.
