Fiji Malolo Island Beach Resort, Mamanucas

Monday, January 24th, 2011

This is a truly Fijian experience: a resort on a beautiful white beach, turquoise-coloured water, coral reefs and coconut palm trees lining the beach. The bures are tastefully furnished in beautiful Fijian style, so that when you enter your bure you immediately feel at home and never want to leave again. This is real paradise. You can snorkel or go canoeing or sailing, or you just hang out on the beach and enjoy. Loved the restaurant up in the jungle and also the kids’ area. Reminded me of Tarzan and Jane and what an adventurous place for the kids. The service is good and the women are so great with the little ones, too. Not too far from Denarau, only about 2 hours on the ferry, and it is an awesome ride through the Mamanuca islands.

Fiji Mana Island Beach Resort

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Spent a night on Mana Island on an island hopper cruise.  Mana Island is very easy to reach from Denarau by ferry. Just a short ride and you are on Mana. The bures are quite nice and have some privacy. There are island bures and oceanfront. Nice outdoor showers. The food was very good and you can sit outside in the mild evenings and watch out over the water. The snorkeling was okay though it is tidal and you have to watch out for the sharp corals. Beautiful colorful fish everywhere and you can snorkel on both sides of the island. I also went up on a short walk onto the little hill from where you have nice views around all of Mana. Very beautiful wedding chapel with white beach in front and tropical surroundings. What a place to get married and spend your honeymoon. If you have a larger group it is well catered for and absolutely private. There is an airstrip so no problem to fly there if you are short of time. All in all very nice place and clear water to snorkel in.

Ko Olina Resort, Marriott – Honolulu, Hawaii

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Staying at the Marriott Ko Olina Resort (Oahu, Hawaii Honolulu/HNL),  was great.

The whole resort is very luxurious. Rooms were spacious and the view was magnificent.  Book discounted rates now

Spent 1 week at this resort. No complaints. Staff was friendly. Beds were comfortable. Pools weren’t crowded. Everything was clean. Food was excellent. I liked the man made lagoons/beaches. I’d definitely go there again. Snorkeling with sea turtles.  Swimming with turtles and dolphins.

Beautiful North Side Surf Beaches – Oahu, Hawaii

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

When we drove around Oahu to see all the sights of the Island we decided to have a quick break at a beach on the north side of Oahu. But once we all got into our swimming suits and went down to the water we found out that this wasn’t going to be a regular swim. The waves there were about 3-4 metres high which was huge for us. We had tons of fun bodysurfing and getting smashed around by the waves which was just an epic experience for me.  But this was not the highest these waves got we found out after. Because in the summer season these waves get to 6-8 metres high and surf competitions take place on beaches in that location. Even though the waves were not as big as they could get in winter. Back when I was there, they were big enough for me. I had so much fun in those waves and I think that it’s definitely a place to visit in Hawaii.
