Pacific Harbour lies along the south coast of Viti Levu, opposite Beqa Island. At the mouth of the Qaranaqio River, you will find The Pearl South Pacific Resort and Spa.
The Pearl Resort has a stellar reputation and is a popular destination with tourists, yachties and locals alike. The hotel was acquired in 2012 by the Mineral Resources Development Company (MRDC) of Papua New Guinea. MRDC has launched impressive plans that will see Pacific Harbour as the new modern marina and resort lifestyle destination.

Last October I got a call from the Chief of Totoya Island (Roko Sau) letting me know that a whale had gotten stuck inside a lagoon near his island.
I’d never been to the Lau Islands before yet had always heard lovely things about the clear waters and teeming marine life of this remote island group. Roko Sau (who also works for the Pacific Blue Foundation) was enthusiastic and managed to charm us a ride on a Super yacht thanks also to the support of Yacht Help Fiji.More info here…
