Backpacking Essentials

Yasawa Islands – The best Fiji Island Backpacking Adventure

Both Barefoot Manta Island and our sister resort Barefoot Kuata Island Resort are the ultimate pit stops for the best Fiji Island backpacking adventure. Easily accessible from mainland Fiji via a boat transfer or seaplane, our resorts are a nice little taste of luxury for the weary traveler.

Resort Accommodation

Arrive at Barefoot Manta Island and be transported into a Blue Lagoon / Castaway inspired world.

Traditional Beach Dorms are designed in a simple Fijian beach hut style on Sunrise Beach.  Fan cooled and sleeping up to four guests in two bunk beds, this seaside room is more akin to upscale lodging then basic backpacking.  Room serviced daily with fresh bath towels and linen supplied.

Sunrise Beach Dorms recently renovated have direct beachfront access, enviable views and comfortably sleep up to four guests in single beds.  Fresh bath towels daily with servicing of the room and fan cooled rooms.

Traditional Beach Bure on Sunrise Beach will suit a couple travelling on a budget.  King or twin bed configuration and right on the beach.  Your own beach side hammock awaits to enjoy those gentle sea breezes.

Beachfront Safari Room – beachfront tented eco-luxe accommodation on Sunset Beach. Suited for couples seeking privacy and wanting to connect with both the surrounding natural environment and each other. Magical semi semi-outdoor en-suite.

Family Safari Room – Overlooking Sunset Beach these family rooms have 1 x king bed plus 2 x single beds or a set of bunks.  Spacious rooms with their own semi-outdoor en-suite facilities. The children will love it.


To truly experience a country one must explore it. Fiji is an amazing island archipelago unto itself but here in the Yasawa Island group there’s a myriad of adventure activities to choose from. Barefoot Manta Island features world class snorkeling directly off the beach!

It’s a marine park and therefore ideal for those seeking up close encounters with sea life. One of the best Fiji Island experiences and a must do for all our guests is the Manta Ray Snorkel (seasonal), an unforgettable and immersive experience one must see to believe. Our certified dive instructors offer guided scuba diving trips to nearby coral reefs at regular intervals

Chill Out

Take it easy! Sometimes a book, a beach, a beverage and a hammock is all you need to need to unwind. Barefoot Manta Resort is a tranquil and secluded destination, where you can enjoy some of the best Fiji Island experiences. Feel free to mingle at either our Bamboo or Sunset Bars if you do want to engage with other like minded travelers.

Please note that WiFi, kayaks and snorkel gear are inclusive in the daily resort package. Our sensational staff welcome guests of all ages with open arms!
