You arrive at a beach with a staircase leading up and into the limestone islet where you jump into a pool of water with sunlight pouring in through a sky-lit opening. The guide goes through first, disappearing underneath the water then illuminates the passage as you dive down about 30cm, depending on the tide, and 1.5m along to enter the dark cavern where only the guide’s flashlight provides minimal visibility. We swam along behind him to the end of the narrowing tunnel before making our way back to the pool we came from. He teases you about eels, which gave me the heebie-jeebies, I get really uncomfortable swimming in water when I can’t see anything! Who knows what is waiting to bite your toes off… Emerging from the cave, we were met with the most inviting water and sunshine, among the fifteen or so people on the excursion, not one could resist from plunging immediately into the ocean and swimming around until our boat drivers whisked us away. There were a few Fijian women on the beach selling handicrafts, but I was too distracted by the warm, bathtub-like water that I didn’t get a chance to shop.
