Definitely go to the Sawa-I-Lau Caves and make sure you go into the second cave. It was a wonderful experience, the water a cold refreshing change from the water temperature outside. We went with Blue Lagoon Resort which was where we stayed, the guide showed us various islands we passed by on our way to the cave and I even... More

If you have the chance to go to the Sawa-I-Lau Caves then you should definitely do it and make sure you go into the second cave, it may seem a scary thought but when we went it was only a matter of holding your breath for maybe 5 seconds and you were through to the next cave. It was a... More

This was well-worth to experience the water and ambience inside the cave. We visited the cave from the Blue Lagoon Resort. The water inside the cave is fresh (not salt water) and cool. The tide was high during our visit, and a visit to the second cave required swimming under water about half a meter (with a mask). I did... More

An absolute must if you're visiting any of the outer islands of the Yasawa group of islands. It is exciting and filled with Fijian history. So much fun and a little scary, but what is adventure without a little adrenaline, right?

We experienced the caves through our Blue Lagoon Cruises and enjoyed every minute of it. The guides were very helpful in explaining what we should expect and alleviated any fears for us also. The first cave has a fixed staircase that leads into it making the access very easy. If you bring flippers it's easy to sit on the last... More

It was certainly handy to have goggles, flippers and snorkel, to make it easier to stay in cave longer. and diving through rock opening into second cave was a buzz. and very pretty blue lagoon added to the attraction of the day.

This was included in our Blue Lagoon Cruise itinerary and glad we had the opportunity to see it. Water was cooler inside and it was a unique experience.

What a disappointment! The prices have been raised to FJ$55 for adults, FJ$15 for kids (under 10 years old are free). This is outrageous for a few minutes in a cave. We did not see sparkling sunlit walls or stalagmites as in promotion photos, just dark water and dark cave walls. Three adults and two kids = FJ$195. With all... More

We've visited these caves twice now. The experience is worth the boat trip it takes to get there. Depending on where you stay and size of the boat it can take 40-60 min.They are amazing, and tidal caves that the local Fijian people give a commentary of their history. You dive under the main cave and pop under (only a... More
