Travel

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

August is the month of giving, and being nice to Mother Nature while you’re traveling is the least you can do, while enjoying her beautiful beaches and clear blue waters. That’s what you’ll be doing if you take a trip to Bounty Island Sanctuary Resort in Fiji (http://www.fiji-bounty.com).

This is Fiji’s newest Eco Tourism Resort, boasting a philosophy that their facilities create minimal impact on the environment. Bounty Island is located less than 15 kilometers from Nadi International Airport and just 15 minutes by the resort’s private boat from Fiji’s mainland – a nice perk, especially if your plane arrives at an odd time. With an emphasis on eco-tourism, the 48 acres of wilderness and gardens have only been changed slightly to provide beautiful surroundings for you.

Beautiful white beaches, clear pristine water and a marine reserve that provides spectacular snorkeling, make for the ideal place to get back in touch with nature. You can relax with a good book on the beach or engage in non-motorized activities such as sailing, snorkeling, or learning the 100 different ways to tie a sarong.

There are private beachfront bungalows called bures with windows on three sides, so you always have a view of the ocean or the palm trees. Or if you really want to commune with the local fauna, you can request one of the 10 European Eco tents with ocean views. The staff is immensely friendly and the main bungalow, which serves as the reception area, feels like a village hangout.

So be kind to Mother Earth, and spoil yourself to a guiltless vacation.
