Fly to Yasawa Island on a Robinson R44
You can also fly to the beautiful shores of Yasawa Island by the Robinson R44, a helicopter that is perfect for a smaller group of up to three people.
The iconic helicopter is the world's best-selling general aviation (GA) helicopter and the most-produced GA aircraft of the 21st century but it still provides style and an exciting flying experience. Our world-class scenic flights and private charters to Yawawa is the ideal way to get your island holiday underway.
The Yasawa Group is an archipelago of about 20 volcanic islands with an approximate total area of 135 square kilometres so there is a diverse range of terrain to see, but as its one of the outer island chains in Fiji, options to get to the Yasawa Islands are a bit more limited so helicopters are a luxurious and excellent way to reach the resorts.
The spacious open cabin and scenic Helicopter is able to fly for 3 hours and can actually reach most of the 333 islands of Fiji on a single trip. At the resort, you will relax at one of only ten spacious and high-end but comfortable bures (Fijian for a wood-and-straw hut or cabin) - on the sandy doorstep of the white sandy beach, and surrounded by private tropical gardens.
The private flight from Nadi Airport to Yasawa Island and the Navutu Stars Resort takes approximately one hour.
