|Savusavu town in Fiji|
The township hugs the shoreline of the bay with steep hills covered in rainforest behind it. You can see steam rising from the volcanic hot springs behind some of the buildings. Apparently some of the local people boil their food in the hot pools.
Savusavu Bay is well known to the yachting fraternity as a safe place to stay during the South Pacific cyclone season. The waters are deep and very sheltered, and with the colourful buildings in the township, - it certainly is a picturesque spot.

I really enjoyed our day there. It was very low key, absorbing the friendly, laid-back atmosphere and people watching. I did buy a mother-of-pearl shell necklace but the grass skirts and coconut shell bras on offer just weren't quite me!!!
