Reportedly, Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of famed oceanographer, Jacque Cousteau), after scuba diving and/or snorkeling in Waitatavi Bay (aka "FijiFiji Private Luxury Resort"), stated that he had never seen such extensive and diverse live corals growing so close to shore! He postulated that Waitatavi Bay was being fed by "coral seed" (plumes) from Rainbow Reef, 1500 meters offshore, and that Waitatavi Bay had an ideal growing environment for the coral. He marveled at our white sands beach and said it was the most beautiful ecosystems he had ever seen in the world ...

FijiFiji's white sand beaches form a half-mile crescent . . . creating its blue lagoon. The land behind lies in a long semi-circular bowl of flat meadows shaded by graceful rain trees and coconut palms. The land rises in small, gentle slopes which lead to steeply mounting, jungle-laden hillsides. These hillsides end in a high protective ridge arcing around the whole resort. A tropical getaway with swaying palms, white sand beach, aquamarine lagoon, and spectacular views.
FijiFiji BioCamp's (historically significant events):
College-bound students who were genuinely interested in studying the vast coral and rainforest ecosystems spent two weeks of their summer face-to-face with one of the earth's most beautiful "labs". Instructor(s) qualified in Marine Biology, Land Animals, Botany, Southern Hemisphere Astronomy, Environmental Design and Fijian Culture guided experiments designed to map and track the preservation of this remote, nearly-untouched paradise. This non-profit effort was also established in an effort to << "Keep Fiji Fiji" >>. Topics covered:
Oceanography - properties of sea water, island formation, ocean resource management
Biology - invertebrate and vertebrate zoology, fish anatomy and physiology
Coral Reefs - formation, types, zonation, health (e.g. bleaching, nutrients, and siltation)
Ecology - life cycles, food chains, predation and predatory avoidance, symbiotic and parasitic relationships, competition and niches, animal behavior
Astronomy - constellations of the southern hemisphere skies, the milky way galaxy, lunar phases, classification of stars
Geology - Tectonic Plates, Volcanic Evidence, Mountains, Erosion, Tides, Ocean Currents
Fijian Culture - Language, Customs, Music, Dancing, Celebrations, Life-style
Biodiversity surveys of species, abundance, and distribution
Animal behavioral investigation
Photography as a tool in science
Water sampling and oceanography methods
Intertidal, beach habitat discovery
Environmental impact investigation
Mapping, quadrants, and transects
Bio-luminescence investigation and observation
Coral health and monitoring methods
Hypothesis testing and experiment designs
The BioCamp’s course-work was then taught to local high schools in Fiji so that they could carry on with future classes.
FijiFiji is based in the Fiji Islands of the South Pacific and is dedicated to preserving Fijian culture while allowing people from around the world to share in the essence of Fiji and what makes Fiji so special.
<< "Keep Fiji Fiji" >> is the non-profit effort dedicated to preserving all that is Fiji today, for generations to come.
"Fiji Fiji BioCamp's" were the original scientific arm that educated students and teachers in marine biology, rainforest management, ecology, clean renewable energy resources, astronomy, and Fijian Culture.
The "FijiFiji Private Luxury Resort" is the place where all of this comes together … at one of the most exclusive resorts in arguably the best place in the world.
"FijiFiji . . . real hard to get to, but so much harder to leave" (quote by: Shariff Shah, Savusavu, Vanua Levu, Fiji Islands)
