Understanding Cakaudrove


Cakaudrove is one of the provinces that make up the island nation of Fiji. It is located on the south eastern coast of the island of Vanua Levu to the north. Aside from areas one the northern island itself, the province also covers nearby islands of Rabi, Taveuni and Kioa as well as other islands under the Vanua Levu Group.

Savusavu is the only major town in Cakaudrove. As of 1996, the town has a population of 4,962. The province is one of the most influential in Fiji as the last governor-general of Fiji and the first President of the Republic had this area as his traditional fiefdom. The current Tui Cakau of the province is a Cabinet Minister as well as a leader of ruling nationalist political party Conservative Alliance. Most of the politicians under the said party also come from Cakaudrove.

The province is governed by what is called a provincial council. The former Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka chairs the said council.

Cakaudrove is bounded by a rugged mountain range that separates it from neighboring Macuata. Traveling around the island of Vanua Levu is suitable for adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts. Backpacking, trekking and hiking are popular activities on the island.

Entry into Vanua Levu is mostly by ferry from the main island of Viti Levu. Vanua Levu’s main port is in Nabouwalu and is served by ferries that go to and from the island at regular intervals. From there, tourists can arrange for share taxis to get to Cakaudrove or take a car hire.

Because of its beautiful beaches, the province and the rest of Vanua Levu are considered best-kept secrets in Fiji. The area is currently being developed as a tourist destination. Cakaudrove, as the province on the southern coast, is expected to attract travelers because it is easily accessible from the southern port.
