Be a pioneer and swim where few have been before you in the far-out paradise of Fiji’s Yasawa Islands
Join like-minded swimmers with plenty of opportunities to swim safely among the 330 islands, over pristine coral reefs
Hit the reset button with golden beaches, palm trees and clear seawater teeming with manta rays, dolphins and tropical fish
The name Fiji conjures up images of stretches of empty white sand beaches, palm trees galore and sea waters that have a shade of blue that is not matched anywhere else. Consisting of over 330 islands the swimming options here are endless. Stunning green islands meet warm coastal seas interspersed with vibrant coral reef inhabited with an abundance of fish.
We have picked the Yasawa Islands, one of the undoubted heavyweights of the archipelago. Blessed with dramatic peaks and sun-drenched white sand beaches, the islands are strung out - ideal for island hopping both by ferry and in SwimTrek’s own unique way. To experience the different parts of this island group we journey between them staying on three different islands, which adds to the uniqueness of the trip.

This trip is designed for those who want to combine spectacular coastal and inter-island swims in the exquisite waters of the Yasawas, while also learning about Fiji's nature, culture and local lifestyle, meeting local people and experiencing the famous Fijian Bula Spirit.
Swims include a mix of coastals and crossings. Swimmers should have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average swim distance of 3 km prior to the start of the trip. The average daily swim distance is around 5 km (split over a minimum of two swims).
