Why is the Rainbow Reef called the Soft Coral Capital of the World?
The Rainbow Reef lies in the Somosomo Strait (the passage that runs between Vanua Levu (Fiji's second largest island) and Taveuni Island (Fiji's third largest island). In Fijian Somosomo Strait means "good water" and it is called this because the strait has strong tidal currents, providing a good supply of nutrients, just the right ingredients for healthy and diverse soft coral and abundant fish. There are over twenty-five sites in and around Fiji's Rainbow Reef, all just a ten minute boat ride from the Resort.
Great White Wall Diving
One of the most famous Fiji dive sites is the Great White Wall, consistently rated as one of the best dive sites in the world. As the name suggests, the treasure is a blanketed wall of luminescent white corals, both hard and soft. The Great White Wall is considered at its absolute best on certain dates of the month. This dive starts at a depth of 20 meters. Turtles, reef sharks, manta rays and barracuda can often be seen on this dive.
