Vuda First Landing Site
Prior to the 1800’s Fiji had almost no connection with the outside world. The South Pacific was just being discovered. In 1789 Captain William Bligh was set adrift in a lifeboat near Tahiti by his mutinous crew of the HMAS Bounty.
Captain Bligh sailed between the two large islands of the Fiji group, Viti Levu (“Big Fiji”) and Vanua Levu (“Big Land”). Upon entering the Fiji waters their canoe, the Kaunitoni, hit a reef and floundered, and they landed on the beach at Vuda near where First Landing Resort is located.
Stop over at First Landing beach side resort for lunch and refreshments.

A short drive from the first landing hotel through green lush scenic route and arrive at colonial city of Lautoka. You will have the opportunity to hop off the coach and move freely and perhaps do your favourite shopping, taste local tropical fruits at the local fresh fruits market, have an ice-cream at the waterfront, or just smile and say Bula (Hello) to the locals and hop on again.
