Fiji – Beqa Island

A visit to Beqa Island in Fiji to meet the locals and experience some of the Fijian culture that is rumored to be warm and welcoming.   Pulling into the cove it’s clear that these islands are plush and blanketed with dense herbaceous, green landscape.

Ahead I catch a glimpse of a structure with a thatched roof.  Curious to know what this is.  Later after meeting some locals, visiting the local village and watching a fire dance, I learned that this building is part of the Beqa Lagoon Resort.

Some beautiful shots taken on the beach.

Beautiful experience exploring this stunning island and the jungle beyond the beach.

Locals put on a show for us.

More of the show.

After the show, the locals got us drunk on a local potion.

Friendly boys wanted me to take a picture of them.

Beautiful day for a stroll on the beach.
