Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is indeed the place where both Blue Lagoon movies were filmed. These days, it is just another Yasawa island paradise and home to several small resorts as well as Blue Lagoon Cruises. After some time in the hinterlands of the northern Yasawas we were happy to spend a few days at the lovely Nanuya Resort and meet some fellow travelers. This island has the ideal white sand beaches and dozens of anemones full of clown fish. The restaurant was excellent and we liked it so much we went back for a second night in a row. Sick of our own cooking, we enjoyed Fijian lobster and fresh Walu (like wahoo) caught that morning. Dessert wasn't bad either. There are no markets or stores in the Yasawas. At this point we were running low on fresh stores. We found out from a fellow cruiser about a Fijian couple just a water taxi away who had a huge farm. We arrived and Miri took us through acres of fruit and veggies. We picked what we wanted and left with bags stuffed with tomatoes, watermelons, green beans, get the idea. If it sounds idyllic, it was.The margaret H.
