Directory

The Yasawas are remote and isolated; there are no banks, postal or medical services, and no proper shops (resorts sometimes stock essentials, and there's a tiny store at Coralview on Tavewa Island). Although increased mobile phone range has made communications easier, it can still be a bit erratic when there’s a mountain in the way.
