Bird watching

Each morning, the trees of Papageno erupt with birdcalls from some of the 68 species identified on the island. Small wonder that Papagenos 350 acres of jungle is a tantalizing destination for bird watchers. King among this early morning chorus is the Masked Shining Parrot, shown above, one of four endemic species found nowhere else in the world. The other three endemics are the Whistling Dove, the Kadavu Fantail, and the Kadavu Honeyeater.

Kayaking

Papageno Resort is situated in a calm bay protected by fringe reefs making the area ideal for exploring the nooks and crannies of the coast. They offer sea kayaks for this activity and they can be found under a small thatched roof at the shore. Next to it is a small store room where you will find the paddles and the life jackets. As the hull of your kayak slices through emerald water, the Pacific around you erupts with hundreds of flying fish; in a mangrove, you explore up the serpentine canals to find birds, crabs, and fish nurseries; and as night falls, you watch the spectacle of the ocean extinguishing the sun; or you pack a picnic lunch and paddle away to your own deserted island beach. Kayaking is an amazing way to experience Kadavus natural wonders. The kayaks are free to use and are available as solo or tandem boats. No prior experience is required: just add water and go.

Waterfall hike

Directly south from Papageno Resort, about 3.5 kilometers nestled in the mountain jungle, there is a tiny waterfall that is popular with visitors. It runs on the bottom of a small picturesque, forested gorge and has a square-shaped natural pool underneath, good for a cool bath after your hot trip up to the waterfall. As you ascend the volcanic backbone of the island, you will have a great view of Daku Bay, the deep and beautiful bay east of Papageno. The trail runs mostly through virgin tropical dry forest on the property, which provides a perfect vantage point to see many of the forest birds of Kadavu. The trip is usually self-guided, but you can also take along one of our knowledgeable guides for a small fee.

Arrival by airplane

Pacific Sun has daily flights from Nadi and Nausori Airport just out of Suva. The road system in Kadavu is very limited, with most transport by boat. For those who want to experience inter island travel as the locals do, there is a ferry that departs from Walu Bay, Suva, on Tuesday evenings which travels to Vunisea, Kavala Bay then back to Suva around 2:00 p.m. the following day.

It takes two flights to arrive to the Island so plan for overnight stay in Nandi. Flights may require an overnight stay in Nadi.

Most of you will arrive with Air New Zealand or Fiji Airways in Nadi Fiji. Once you arrive in Fiji, you will need to get a seat on a commuter plane flying to the remote island of Kadavu. There is only one airport and it is in Vunisea Kadavu.

Papageno Resort's staff will be waiting for you at Kadavu's airport and will help carry your luggage to the beach. A powerboat will then take you on an exhilarating 30-minute ride beside a shore where green jungle rises to rolling mountains. Your journey ends when you glide to a halt in the shallows of Malawai Bay, and see your host waiting for you on our white sand beach.
