What do you need to know about Natewa Bay?
80km long, 15km wide and over 1000 square km, the largest bay in the South Pacific.
With an average depth of 500m the bay is very deep and well protected from large ocean waves. This results in a very sheltered shoreline and comparatively calm waters.
The bay abounds with pristine coral reefs which are suitable for both scuba diving and snorkelling. A wide variety of marine species can be seen, including beautiful hard and soft corals, healthy populations of reef fish, sharks, rays and turtles.
It's home to two resident pods of spinner dolphins, and several species of whales have been seen on occasions.
