Sleepy little fishing was a really quiet place overall. Not too much to do..however the locals were all amazing! They were so welcoming and kind and just made it a special port. There is always a welcome dance and locals at the port just genuinely helping people and not expecting anything back. We were lucky enough to see the top half of mount Fiji in the afternoon...stunning!
