In desperate need of Factor 30!
We thought Beachcomber was basic, until we arrived at our next island, Nacula, which is in the north of the Yasawa group of islands. It took four hours to get here, during which time we managed to get completely sunburnt, despite wearing suncream! We arrived on the island and were met by the staff, who led us into the dining room, and served us lunch, of which there was only one option. Luckily none of us are fussy eaters!
Our accommodation is a tiny hut with a thatched roof on the beach, called a bure. There is no phone signal or internet access, and the electricity is switched on for only four hours a night, which is quite refreshing- for a couple of days! We spent most of the afternoon lying in the locally made hammocks outside our bure, looking out at the beautiful views across the beach.
In the evening we had dinner, and then had to take part in an initiation ceremony, where we had to introduce ourselves and say whether or not we were available, which was quite embarrassing, although there was only 10 guests other than ourselves! We also had to do the 'Bula' dance with our new family! Later we sat on the deck drinking Bounty rum, and the men were taught how to do the Fijian Hakka.
