Offered as a pre- or post-semester excursion, this laidback adventure will get you away from the well-trodden tourist path and onto a small remote island. Discover the island by day through snorkeling, kayaking, getting to know the local turtle breeding program, and simply relaxing on the beach then sleep in traditional Fijian wood and straw huts for a picture-perfect island experience.

Itinerary

Itinerary

This exciting excursion includes four nights on Treasure Island, a beautiful resort island destination in the Fiji and Mamanuca islands.

After landing on the mainland, you’ll collect your belongings and make your way to the ferry for a scenic ride to Treasure Island. The resort takes up the entire island so you will be able to explore and enjoy the beautiful views and marine sanctuary at every corner. Your days will be spent with afternoons snorkeling, sunbathing on the beach, or simply relaxing in a hammock. The evening concludes with a traditional Fijian feast and dance ceremony.

Three full days days on Treasure Island provide plenty of opportunity to enjoy all that the island has to offer. Learn about Fijian culture and island life; discover how their turtle breeding program is thriving; explore the coral; play volleyball in the sand or just enjoy the views. You can also opt for kayaking or sailing and will enjoy a traditional Fijian feast and dance ceremony.

Soak up your last morning on the island with a delicious breakfast followed by a weaving and coconut husking demonstration plus time for some final swimming, sunbathing or one last snooze in the hammock. After lunch, catch the ferry back to the mainland and prepare for your final journey home.
