Viti Levu Diving
Coral Coast and Pacific Harbour
Viti Levu is Fiji's main island and chances are that you will pass through this way. The island boasts some excellent resorts and fairly good diving, particularly in the south where the Coral Coast and Beqa Lagoon can be found.
Generally the diving in Viti Levu is characterised by hard coral walls and channels visited by pelagics. But perhaps its biggest drawcard is the amazing shark feed dive at Shark Reef, where you have a very real chance of once-in-a-lifetime encounters with bull sharks and tiger sharks. There are also ocean lagoons, that are populated by a multitude of reef life.
The soft coral bommies and pinnacles of Beqa Lagoon lie just off the south coast and are one of the best known scuba diving destinations within Fiji.
