With an area of 470 square kilometers Taveuni is the third-largest of the 300 Fiji islands after Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Its fertile soils gave rise to the name the Garden Island. Like much of Taveuni the 1300 meters extinct volcano Uluiqalau is thickly carpeted with rainforest. Here and elsewhere on the island you’ll find the unique Tagimaucia flower for which Taveuni is famous. Most of the Fiji Islands' bird species can also be seen here.

Taveuni straddles the 180 degree meridian and is separated from Vanua Levu by the Somosomo Strait, rich in world class dive sites. Dive the amazing Rainbow Reef, The Great White Wall, The Purple Wall, The Ledge, The Zoo, The Fish Factory and countless others. All these spots are just a short boat ride from Swiss Fiji Divers' base.

Minutes from the island's tiny Matei Airport, serviced daily by flights from Nadi International Airport and from the capital, Suva, is the white sandy beach where Swiss Fiji Divers has its first-class dive center, owned and personally operated by Dominique Egerter, diving for 30 years all over the world, and Evi Antonietti.

The center has been set up to the highest world standards and uses only best dive equipment and rental gear. Our dive boats have been purpose built for diving and offer plenty of room for gearing up.

And accommodation? Close by are several choices from budget to 4-star.

HELP PROTECT OUR REEFS! Fiji's coral reefs are among the most beautiful in the world, and are very fragile. People diving with Swiss Fiji Divers do not wear gloves, touch or feed any animals or break any corals. We don‘t allow spear fishing or live shelling.


Our new Snack and Ice Cream Bar is open daily for our guests from 0800am until 0500pm. Here you can enjoy breakfast, light lunch, ice cream, coffee, milk shakes and soft drinks.
