Mantaray Island is located in the Yasawa Islands on a sheltered bay of the island of Nanuya Balavu. It looks across a white beach and bright blue channel to Drawaga Island. In between the islands are the famous manta rays that inspired the name Mantaray Island. The manta rays frequent the area between May and October. You will find manta rays with wingspans that can reach up to 20 feet basking in the water. Everyone is encouraged to go for a snorkel to see them and there are guided snorkel tours available for those who feel a little bit intimidated.
The truth is that it doesn’t matter where you go in Fiji, it will always be wonderful. But if you’re looking for a once in a lifetime experience, then you should stay at Mantaray Island. The stories about your tropical adventures with the majestic manta rays will never grow old.
Mantaray Island has an Activities Team that offers a range of activities, varying from craftwork such as coconut jewelry making and weaving, or if you’re more inclined to work up a sweat, then you can go hiking, standup paddle boarding, kayaking or play volleyball. If you’re a diver, Mantaray Island will not disappoint. Choose from spearfishing, free diving, scuba diving or diving with sharks. Even if you’re not a seasoned diver, you can certainly learn new skills with the experienced divers on the island.
The resort has a range of accommodation to suit different needs. Choose from beachfront villas, jungle bures, tree house bures or the budget friendly paradise dorm that features 32 beds. The Treehouse Bures are located close by to the beach and nicely shaded by the trees. They are also ideal for couples and friends travelling together wanting a little more comfort and privacy than the Paradise Dorm where budget is a consideration.
The Jungle Bure is perfect for couples and offer an ensuite, king sized bed and private balcony. If you’re looking for something upscale, then the beachfront villa is for you. Opened in 2014, these newly built villas offer a living room; open-air bathroom, air conditioning and can sleep up to four people. Whether you’re here for romance, meeting new people, chilling with the family, water adventures or cultural indulgence, Mantaray Resort offers it all.
