Snorkelling Fiji – spectacular scenery below the waves

Fiji is every bit the tropical paradise of your dreams. Idyllic sandy beaches. Clear turquoise water. Hammocks under palm trees. Happy, friendly locals. Glorious sunshine. Unfortunately my Fijian getaway turned into a nightmare when I got caught up in the devastation of Cyclone Winston. Insane winds, rough seas, torrential downpours – it was a scary mega-storm. I nearly died (read about it here).

Chilling on the beach in Fiji

All that drama now dominates my memories of my visit to the Funky Fish Resort on Malolo island, in the Mamanuca group. But, before all the craziness kicked off, I had a fantastic few days of lazing around on the beach, making new friends, drinking coconut water and snorkelling in the warm, clear waters,

Here are some of my favourite images of my Fijian adventure before the storm:
