Sawa-i-Lau Caves Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
These scenic ancient limestone caves are located on Sawa-i-Lau Island in the Yasawa island group, the home of the famous Blue Lagoon. An adventure in their own right, the caves have been carved from continuous wave action and are known as the resting place of the ancient Fijian god Ulutini.
Today they can be visited for a unique swimming experience. The first cavern is filled with natural light and a deep pool with a water temperature only a few degrees cooler than that of the Pacific Ocean water outside. Take a dip in the cave’s clear waters to see otherworldly limestone formations.
The second cave, depending on the tide, can only be accessed by swimming through an underground tunnel. The caves are known to Fijians as the “heart of the Yasawa” for their beauty and significance.
The Sawa-i-Lau Caves are located off the southern tip of Yasawa Island. They are best visited by boat and can be hard to find, so it is recommended that you visit with a guide.
Address: Near Nabukeru Village, Yasawa Island, Fiji
