Turtle IslandFiji

Are you turtly enough for the turtle club?

Iconic Fijian island resort Turtle Island has re-opened it's doors - just in time too, with the first flights departing from Australia to Fiji this week.

The island is a 500-acre barefoot luxury resort that has been one of the mainstays of travel to Fiji for over 40 years.

Staff recently recreated an image from 1980 - the same year the island provided the setting for the 1980 Hollywood teen-romance film 'Blue Lagoon'.

From 1980...

....to now!

In addition to days of snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding, sailing and fishing, dining has always been a big deal at Turtle Island Guests can get a fresh farm- and sea-to-table dining experience, and not just at a table either (boring) but in epic locations like the beach, the extraordinary garden and even on a mountain top.

During the closure, there has also been a focus on the expansion of the island farm to deliver a more sustainable guest experience – the 5-acre vegetable and hydroponic garden on the Island supplies over 80% of the produce used at the resort.

Check out the video below of the Island welcoming back visitors this week:
