Head just outside of town to the factory belonging to Copra Millers of Fiji -- the leading manufacturer of coconut oil in Fiji. Witness the processing of virgin coconut oil extracted from coconut flesh with minimal processing -- no high heat or pressure and no harsh chemical solvents, bleaching agents, etc. The oil is completely unrefined to ensure it retains all the natural goodness of the coconut itself. There is a huge demand for coconut oil overseas; Malaysia and Taiwan are Fiji's largest markets.
Re-board the bus and enjoy a leisurely scenic drive along the picturesque coastal Hibiscus Highway. En route, pass the renowned Namale Resort (owned by Anthony Robbins – motivational guru) and Oneva Estate, once a prosperous copra plantation, now been developed into a residential subdivision and home to many expatriate retirees. Pass coastal beaches and old coconut plantations before arriving at Vatudamu Community Hall for refreshments and some local cultural entertainment.
Retrace your journey and return to Savusavu town to visit the bubbling hot springs, where locals cook their food wrapped in little cloth bundles or sacks.
Return to the Copra Shed Marina to board the tender back to the ship.
Transportation is by non-air-conditioned island-style bus equipped with a microphone. Tour does not operate on Sundays.
