Robinson Crusoe IslandTake a day trip or dinner cruise to Robinson Crusoe Island, across the bay from Viti Levu and accessible only by boat. Join a daytime cultural or crab-catching tour or rock up for the sunset cruise and see an exhilarating show. As night falls, a primal beat begins, double-edged baton torches are lit, and the show begins. The fire dancers' skin and the green leaves of their costumes glisten in the firelight as the batons twirl and feet stomp in the fine white sand. The dance is an unmissable Fijian performance that stirs something joyful and ancient in all who watch it.
