Welcome to Barefoot Kuata Island

Someplace between the end of the earth and the beginning of heaven, is a little slice of paradise that we call home. It is along this unspoiled stretch of beach forming the gateway to the Yasawas, that we built Kuata Island’s eco-lodge, where Fijian warriors once protected the ragged volcanic coastline. An ecologically sensitive refurbishment is well underway, using design principles that pay tribute to the island’s rich Fijian heritage. The surrounding coastline has been declared a marine park and offers many diverse ecosystems to explore; from craggy rock pools to pristine coral reefs and sandy white beaches.

Not only are the beaches ideal for lazing and swimming, the reef is also home to friendly white-tipped reef sharks and make for an unforgettable snorkeling experience. The lodge is also home to Crystal Blue Reef Safari, our sister Dive Company, offering numerous activities and dive excursions for everyone – from the intrepid first-timer to experienced divers. We also offer deep sea fishing excursions where you get to bring home your catch of the day for one of our chefs to prepare for you. The island’s interior is an undulating landscape of verdant tropical forests and craggy peaks with switch-backs for trekking and exploring. Our friendly staff will be happy to take you for a tour to their nearby village, teach you about the many Fijian traditions and share their rich cultural heritage.
