About the neighbourhood
Savusavu is a unique community in all of Fiji for many reasons. Here's a few examples: 1) it's a quaint little town located on Savusavu Bay, a protected harbor and a favorite anchor point for hundreds of yachts each year. 2) Due to the high concentration of coconut plantations and freehold properties, there is an extraordinary percentage of expats living here. Many people from around the world have made Savusavu their 2nd or primary residence. 3) Eco tourism, scuba diving and snorkeling, and true fijian culture are primary attractions. 4) There are quite a few options for shopping, restaurants and activities. On the way from town, you'll pass through friendly little villages along the way where they never grow tired of greeting you.
Getting around
Savusavu is famous for having some of the best roads in Fiji. That's because SSV didn't have much of a road system until fairly recently. So, our roads are some of the newest. These include the highway traversing the island's interior between Savusavu and Labasa and from SSV town to Natuvu wharf nearly 50km. There are 3 wharves on Vanua Levu with drive on/off ferry service. Ferries can take you to Suva or Taveuni. They're not as dependable as airlines and trips are quite long in duration. Best not to depend on ferries when connecting with flights. Public buses pass by Sigasiga to/from town approx every two hours Mon-Sat. No bus service on Sundays. FJ$1.60 Taxis are plentiful, courteous, punctual & affordable. Sigasiga to town FJ$13
