The town is usually the first port of call for people sailing from Tonga and Samoa.
Because Savusavu town provides most things a cruising yacht needs, from fuel, water and groceries, to banking, general hardware and electrical, Savusavu’s harbor is bustling with yachts coming and going.
Many use Savusavu as a base for cruising the less explored Northern islands of Fiji and quite often set up camp in the protected Nakama Creek for the duration of our cyclone season.
The town is famous for its hot springs (just ask a local to point them out), and at low tide you can see the steam from numerous small outlets all along the foreshore. It is not uncommon to find pots of food being cooked over the bubbling waters, so if you happen run out of gas onboard, you know where you can boil your eggs!
As an interesting side note – this geothermal energy is resource that could generate enough electricity to power the entire island of Vanua Levu!
