Waiting for the explorer in you

Barefoot Manta Island, known traditionally as Drawaqa Island, lies in the Southern Yasawa Islands of Fiji. The breath-taking coral gardens, situated just off the coastline, are among the finest in the Fijian isles. Barefoot Manta Island offers a tranquil environment, with the gentle sound of the waves lapping the shore. Our eco-lodge is the perfect destination for nature lovers in search of a one of the few Fijian islands unspoiled by man.

We offer unparalleled manta ray safaris in one of the best locations for dive enthusiasts, spectacular snorkelling and beautiful coastal and forest trails, visits to nearby Fijian villages, kayaking…the list is endless.

Step onto our island and lose yourself in the world of Blue Lagoon and Castaway. Allow yourself to settle into "Fiji Time"you'll come to uncover a virtual treasure trove of things to explore - both on land and in the surrounding waters.

In fact there are so many delights to occupy the mind and the senses that, often, guests who had only planned to spend a couple of days on the island extend their stay with us or make our sister island, Barefoot Kuata Island, their next stop.
