Matana beach is a beautiful sandy beach located on Kadavu Island and a hands down favourite amongst visitors to the island, as it is located right next to beautiful tropical gardens. Kadavu Island is still unspoiled by major development and with two traditional villages next to the resort; this is the place to experience authentic Fijian lifestyle and culture. The beautiful all-tide beach has great snorkeling sites just steps from the bures. Dive Kadavu has access to all major reef systems around Kadav with an amazing variety of marine life on the coral bommies just off the resort beach. Have an outstanding diving experience, diving at the foot of a volcano, observing stunning tropical fish, brilliantly coloured soft and hard coral walls and swim-through on over 40 dive sites or enjoy the sheltered Namalata Reef. You will be amazed when you see Mantas on the Great Astrolabe Reef and explore the Motu marine, a protected area sheltered from the southeasterly winds where the snorkelling and swimming is also wonderful, regardless of the tide. A popular oceanfront bar hosts regular lovo (feast cooked in a pit oven), barbecue and curry nights for those with an appetite for authentic foods.
