Matagi Bay, Qamea, Fiji

Does this make you want to put on a snorkel?

This is one of the prettiest little anchorages that I’ve been in. I took ‘Learjet’ there in 2006. The reefs around the perimeter are gorgeous. It is a bit tricky putting the hook on the bottom in a way that keeps the whole system from touching any coral. And you want to get out at the slightest hint of any significant wind out of the north. But it is worth the effort if you have settled weather and no other boats are there already.

Don’t let the 1000 vampires worry you.

Matagi is located above Qamea, east of Taveuni:

There is a lovely resort on the island. Their website is at www.matangiisland.com.
