BEQA LAGOON DIVE OVERVIEW  

Surrounded by over 190 miles of spectacular coral reef on one of the Worlds largest barrier reefs, Beqa Lagoon Resort offers divers a gateway to a wonderland of marine life and some of the best diving in Fiji, the soft coral capital of the World. With dive sites that start from as shallow as 15ft (5m) and drop away to nearly 100ft (30m) and beyond in some places, divers are able to dive at a variety of depths, depending on what they are looking for. With year round temperatures ranging between a cool 75˚f (25˚c) and a bathwater 84˚f (29˚c) divers are comfortable in 3mm to 5mm suits.

All of the boat dives are guided by PADI Divemasters who have been diving the waters of Beqa since they were children. Knowing every small hole and hiding place on these pristine reefs they are able to show divers all of the colourful and amazing treasures that these waters hold from Blue-ribbon eels, Clown Triggerfish, Leaf Scorpionfish to camouflaged day Octopus. All the while you dive in a rainbow of vivid pink and orange anthias and silver-blue fusiliers. Take some time to explore sunken wrecks or even feed your adrenaline with the Beqa ‘Big Fish Encounter’, a dive that teases you with huge groupers, bait balls of massive Trevally, and the chance of being up close and personal with 9 different species of sharks. Why not even travel out to the edge of the reef and dive along under the famous Frigates surf break, enjoying your lunch on the boat as you watch waves crash, and sneaking in that third dive before heading back to the resort and happy hour.

The beautiful house reef is perfect for diving any time of day or night, when the fancy takes you. Located straight out from the resort, the reef boast healthy hard corals, numerous juvenile reef fish, rays, and even the illusive seahorse likes to hide in the shallow eel grass. Reaching a maximum depth of 25ft (8m) this site is not only perfect for diving, but makes an ideal protected area for snorkelling your day away. The 5* PADI dive centre has snorkelling gear available for guests, as well as a full range of dive equipment for rental, including wrist mounted dive computers, BCD’s, regulators, full length wetsuits for the shark dive, night lights and even UV lights if you want to try fluorescent night diving. The only way to see the true colours of the corals!

Beqa Lagoon Dive Center Overview 

Growing up on Beqa Island has given the dive team of Beqa Lagoon Resort an immense level of knowledge and understanding of the waters of the lagoon and all the treasures that they hold. Just a look out to the water in the morning and the boat captains know exactly which dive sites are going to provide our dive guests with the best possible conditions each day. Then once in the water, the lively Beqa Lagoon PADI Divemasters will excite divers and photographers of all levels with the amazing marine life they find along every step of the dive.

Beqa Lagoon Resort’s 5* PADI Dive Centre is proud to be able to offer our guests a wide variety of PADI courses for both uncertified and experienced divers. We are also happy to allow our guests the flexibility of completing the theory part of their course online before they arrive in Fiji. This means you get to have more time in the water and less time reading a book.

The dive boats of Beqa Lagoon Resort have a long history with Fiji, and all of our captains are proud and protective of their vessels. Each with more than ample space, the boats allow both passengers and divers to spread out, whether in the wheel house listening to the captain tell stories of Beqa Island, or on the upper sun decks watching the world and water pass by.

All vessels are fully equipped with all of the amenities you will need for your day including all safety equipment, life vests, emergency oxygen and first aid kits, marine VHF radios, and marine toilets.

In May of 2013, I had the opportunity to stay and dive at Beqa Lagoon Resort in Fiji. 6 Nights, 15 dives. I highly recommend the Beqa Lagoon Resort and plan to return soon.

Travel Conditions:

We (6 divers in our party) arrived at the Nadi International Airport in Fiji after a 12-hour flight from Los Angeles (Air Pacific now called Fiji Airways). We were met just outside of customs by two resort drivers who loaded all of our bags and dive gear into one van and us into another. Don’t worry, everything made it safely.

It was near a 3-hour drive from the airport to the dive boat that would take us from the mainland to the Island resort. The van stopped about halfway to give us a 30-minute break and a chance to do a little shopping. I would however recommend holding off on buying a ton of stuff until the return trip at the end of your trip. The transport vans stop at the same street of stores going and returning from the resort. I bought way too much stuff, but love many of the Fijian pieces of artwork and cultural items I picked up along the way. I had many of the larger items shipped directly from the store back to Los Angeles.

Upon arriving at the boat, our gear had already been loaded onto the boat for us. Once we confirmed all of our gear was present the boat set out for a quick 45-minute boat ride to the resort.

Upon entering the Beqa Lagoon, everyone transfers to smaller dingy boats and goes ashore for a wet landing. We were greeted by about 20 plus staff members all singing and welcoming us to the Island. Refreshing cocktails and a complimentary travel foot and shoulder massage were offered and accepted.

There was a quick overview of the resort and rundown of the week ahead. We were then shown to our Bures where all of our luggage and gear was waiting for us.

Accommodations:

A Bure is the Fijian word for a wood-and-straw hut, sometimes similar to a cabin. In its original sense, a bure is a structure built of anything that comes to hand.

At Beqa Lagoon Resort, the bures are simplistic, yet clean and well maintained. Ours was a suite style with a queen size bed in the main area and a twin bed in front. There was a window AC unit and room safe. While it’s not the Four Seasons, it was by no means a straw hut. I found the bures quite cozy and accommodating.

Our party booked 3 Bures side-by-side with ocean views. I would highly recommend spending the extra $ for this option. We had a secluded back porch with hot tub, private yard and an amazing view of the ocean. It made for a great post dive wind down spot each day before heading to meals in the main area.

There is electricity in the bures (Fiji is 240 volts AC 50Hz with three-pin power points) but it was recommended to us to recharge all lights, batteries, dive computers, cameras, etc in the main office as the electrical current in the bures was not at a constant voltage. I feared this idea at first, but after one day found it to be no problem at all. The office was set up to accommodate many items being recharged throughout the day and night.

An extremely friendly housekeeping staff cleans the room each day while you are diving.

Although I declined this option, Wifi is offered for an additional fee in the main lobby area where most guests spend their time above water. This is where all the meals are served and the bar is located. There are no TV’s anywhere at the resort. You’re here to dive, not watch TV.

Resort Features & Non-Dive Activates:

Just off the main area, there is a beautiful pool, which I confess I never touched. Too busy in the ocean. There is a very nice spa that offers all kinds of different services. We took advantage of the ocean-side couples massage. Very nice and relaxing.

One of my favorite things about the resort was they offered different activities every day after lunch. From cooking classes, fire-walking, kava ceremonies to island tribe school visits. The resort and staff went out of their way to provide a genuine and authentic Fijian experience.

Don’t miss the school visit. It was a true highlight. I recommend bringing a few school supplies as a small gift. These kids are amazing and friendly, and they love soccer.

Also don’t miss the hike to the island waterfall. If it’s been rainy, it’s quite spectacular.

There is NO CASH exchanged at the resort. Unless you buy something from the locals during a visit off resort, everything is charged to your room/bure and settled up at the end of your trip. Spa, gift shop, extra dives, even your drinks at the bar are tallied and paid for at the end. The meals are all included.

There is a small resort gift shop for supplies and such but I never went inside. Sorry.

Restaurant/Bar:

There is only one restaurant and it provides all meals (breakfast, lunch & diner) for the entire resort. There is no traditional menu, you are simply presented with a few multi-course options for each meal. This may seem limiting but I assure you, we never had the same dish twice and the food was off the charts amazing! Some true fine dinning dishes were served. It was far above the quality that I expected.

The bar offers a different happy hour drink special each day before diner. Beware of the mai thai’s. They are crazy good but extremely strong. Contrary to what you may think, nobody needs 5 mai thai’s in one evening.

The Diving;

This is the main reason to choose Beqa as a destination. First, the boats and dive crew. BEST I”VE EVER HAD! I don’t say that lightly. Why are they the best? In a very quick amount of time they assess every diver’s abilities, your underwater likes and dislikes and cater the entire experience to suit. Unlike many resort dive boats, this is no cattle boat. There were three large and well-equipped dive boats that went out every morning. Our core group was a mix of certifications (1 rescue, 3 AOW and one OW) and nobody felt pushed or limited by the dives. I would say we never had more than 15 divers on our boat. This is also a place where because of its small resort size, you get to know everyone pretty well. I really enjoyed diving and exchanging stories with the other guests. You will add many friends to your Facebook account after staying at Beqa. Our group had the same guide for most of our dives. Joe Green (not his given name of course, but adopted due to the striking resemblance) was an amazing guide! He pointed out things that I would of swam right past. His ability to spot the unique was remarkable. Loved diving with Joe!

As for the dive sites. Everyone goes to Beqa for the Shark Dive. It cost a little extra but truly lives up to the hype. It was my first encounter with Tiger and Bull sharks. Awesome! Yet my favorite site was John’s Tunnel. A tunnel 30 feet long, 5ft to 8 ft wide, lined with soft coral. There’s also a nice Japanese trawler wreck at 80ft.

Fantasea was also a great site. The most colorful of dive sites on this trip. Lots of great soft coral and Georgian Fans.

One thing to add. The OW member of our group actually finished her open water skills to complete her certification while at the resort over the first couple of days. They offer most certification courses. Her review of the resort instructors were top notch.

This is a place were you dive as much or as little as you want to. For me, 15 dives in 5 days. Boat dives, shark dives, shore dives, night dives. All amazing. Most dives about 80-84 degrees with 100ft plus viz.

Last bit about the dive crew. They spoil you. Everything is set up and waiting for you on the boat each day. I’m one that generally likes doing my own set up, yet at Beqa, after the 1st day I sat back and welcomed the 1st class service.

Overall:

To sum it all up, Beqa is a great dive resort that I plan to revisit in the future. As soon as possible.

Bula (hello),

Following retirement my wife and I traveled to Fiji for a 2 week stay at Beqa Lagoon Resort. From the moment we arrived 'til the moment we departed we were pampered by the resort staff, taken care of by the dive operators, appetites satisfied by the kitchen personnel, greeted with smiles by all the Fijian people and the dining room ladies made sure we had all we needed for a pleasant meal 3 times daily. The rooms were extremely comfortable with A/C and ceiling fans giving us cooling moments when needed. I highly suggest the sea shell massage by the spa experts to relieve any stress or muscle ache one might have from the diving or touring of the island.

All diving was done by boat and the dive staff was always eager to find marine creatures for us tourists. Most dives had a mild current bu nothing that could not be easily managed. They treated the divers the same whether photographers or not. The boats were roomy and getting back on board was easy. I was especially satisfied when they helped me with my gear upon surfacing. I had back surgery a couple of years ago and the dive staff was happy to take my weights and BC off before I tried climbing the ladder. That made the diving even more pleasant and less stressful.

The food served was mostly Fijian style and if a person had any special dietary needs that was taken care of the the kitchen staff. They were eager to satisfy. We did not have a single bad meal the entire 2 weeks but I really should have stayed away from a couple of the desserts but the temptation was too great.

While not under the water a guest has opportunities to walk to a couple of the villages, shore dive or snorkel, get a relaxing massage, attend the mid-afternoon activities teaching about Fijian culture and the before dinner shows of dancing, singing or fire walking! The fire walking show was simply amazing...like how do they do that?

Vinaka (thank you) Beqa Lagoon Resort for all the great moments you all helped to create.

Very nice resort with excellent food, super staff and really good diving. There's not much else on the island but if you're into diving, eating, partying with the locals and perhaps seeing some of the local villages, this is the place for you. It was pricey for me but not compared to any other dive resort in Fiji. It's on the other side of the world so of course it's going to be a little costly. I was sharing a room with another diver and the room we were in was suite size with two large beds. They weren't separated by a wall but the area was so large you couldn't see the other bed from your own. The room was a little dated but clean and well filled with well-kept furniture. Our room also had its own porch and wading pool if you wanted to stretch out in the water and relax. I think the resort had been there a while but was well-kept throughout, open and spacious. Each day you were given a selection of dishes to be served for the meals that day. The selection usually had a fish, meat and vegetarian option as well as desert options. The dive operation was well prepared each day and took care of your equipment after you first arrived. Shore diving was available right off the beach of the resort and options were available like night and shark dives. Nitrox was available for an up charge and dive masters went on each dive to show you the sights if you wanted to follow them or you could venture off on your own.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable trip (one week)! The Fijians are the friendliest people you'll meet (Bula Bula!). The resort is spacious with sizable rooms and a lot of variety, including some rooms with plunge pools. It is spread out over a large area, with interconnecting paths. This resort is one where divers, non-divers and kids can all have an enjoyable time. The diving is fantastic. Marine life in Fiji is over the top. Lots of my favorite fish--the clown trigger. Also ribbon eels, soft corals and a large variety of tropical fish. Don't miss the shark dive--big bull sharks and occasionally one or two huge tiger sharks. I got one of my most memorable videos, of a big bull shark with his mouth wide open holding a large fish head, swimming right toward me and almost bumping into my camera lens before veering off. The food was very good, and the resort staff excellent. One evening a group of local kids came to the resort and performed a concert with drumming and singing that was awesome.

This review is for Beqa Lagoon Resort on Beqa Island in Fiji. This is about the resort and its dive operations and will not review the general topside activities available in greater Fiji. Beqa Island is located to the South of Nadi, which is one of the main islands. We flew Fijian Air, formerly Air Pacific from Los Angeles to Nadi International. It was about 13 hours direct. The resort picked us up at the airport and transported us 2 hours south. We stopped about halfway for a bathroom/refreshments/try to sell us tourist goods at Jack’s of Fiji which is a chain of tourist shops. The harbor where we crossed to the island was about an hour from there. We rode the whole way with the wife of the resort manager and she gave us about a 15 minute briefing at the harbor while we waited for our luggage to be loaded which gave the bugs ample time to tear my arms and legs a new one. If you usually get bit, use whatever means necessary to repel the bugs, I used every available option but the lemongrass oil seemed to work well and not result in chemical smell. For people who are scared or freaked out by bugs, this is a tropical environment and the resort is located in a pretty remote area so you will see lots of bugs and some will be in the room but it would prove impossible to avoid that.
Overall the resort is well maintained and the staff is very helpful. We stayed in one of the beachfront Bure (room) and it had a small dip pool, deck, table, chairs, lounge chair, and hammock. It was very large and pretty luxurious as the room had two beds and sitting area. For those wondering, you can purchase liquor at the duty free shop in the airport but the resort does encourage you to drink it privately in your room or deck, which is what we did. The types of meals give you enough variety so I believe it would fit most groups and the various preferences they may have and the food was delicious. They incorporated local food items as well as the items us western folk expect. Topside activities include an opportunity to hike to a waterfall, travel to the capital, fish, travel to a surf spot, or just lounge. We did rent jetski’s a couple times and it was fun just blasting around on those.
The diving. The diving is beautiful and there is a large variety of species to see. Their claim to fame is being the soft coral capital of the world and it’s hard to argue that point from my view. There are two boat dives in the morning and shore diving in the afternoon. Afternoon boat dives are extra and they require at least 4 people to make a boat go. I at first felt bored that the afternoon didn't have organized dives but I slowly let go and started to enjoy the afternoon relaxation more towards the end of my trip. The one thing you must do is the shark dives. The shark dives are organized by another group but they made the whole trip worthwhile. The set up for the dives was well organized and the density of the sharks is pretty overwhelming. There were also GIANT groupers, bigger than the ones I saw in Key West on the Vandenberg.
Overall, if you are looking for lots of diving in a day, I would say Beqa is not for you. If you looking for good diving mixed in with relaxation, then this is a place you want to be. One last thing, stay on the marked paths, coconut’s would sporadically fall from the trees and hearing them thump the ground made me totally believe the statistic that more people are killed by coconuts than sharks.
