The Best Snorkelling in Fiji

Tabu - No Fishing Zone

A tabu (pronounced tambu) is the imposing of a no-fishing zone by indigenous Fijian landowners. The indigenous landowners of Drawaqa Island have declared the waters & reefs surrounding Barefoot Manta Island Resort Fiji 'tabu'.

 

The impact of a tabu is twofold, it creates a safe nursary for juvenile fish, fish stocks are easily replenished ensuring sustainable fishing for Yasawa island villages. The tabu also provides Barefoot Manta Island Resort Fiji houseguests with the best snorkelling in Fiji.
