About Oarsman's Bay Lodge


Our remote location means the culture and traditions are strong. Life on Nacula Island is simple, harmonious with nature and uncomplicated.

You can visit an active, authentic and traditional Fijian village and see how the people of Nacula live today.  Learn Fijian crafts such as basket weaving and coconut husking, and experience a traditional Lovo (food cooked in the ground).
