Visit the island where Tom Hanks was a castaway
It's now often just called "Tom Hanks Island" since this was the very spot where the heavily bearded actor and his adorable volleyball Wilson filmed the now classic film Cast Away. Every resort in the realm has tours here so don't expect a feeling of isolation. Instead, enjoy the sparkling white sand beach and snorkel the big blue bay before enjoying whatever lunch is provided on your tour (or your bag lunch if there is none). There are lots of seabirds and some endemic lizards including the rare Fijian crested iguana for those interested in spotting wildlife. Don't forget the camera, relax and enjoy.
