eqa Island is the home of Fiji's Firewalkers, and periodically guests of Beqa Lagoon have the exclusive privilege of witnessing the sacred fire walking ceremony. Early in the day, young men from the neighboring village carry large branches to the resort and build an enormous bonfire underneath a pile of stones. When the fire is low and the stones are glowing red, the warriors reappear in ceremonial dress. The eldest begins a deep resonant chant, and slowly, one by one, the very young to the very old walk carefully across the scalding stones.

 

Firewalkern 1994, a group of reporters from National Geographic visited the resort to document the sacred fire walking ceremony. They were accompanied by a scientist who measured the heat of the stones at over 1200 degrees Fahrenheit (650 degrees Celsius). He also examined the firewalkers thoroughly though could offer no explanation as to what makes the ceremony possible.

Thanks for making our dive vacation so special. We loved diving with you, and loved talking with Joelli. The staff is really special--knowing our names and being so nice all of the time. It is really wonderful to talk to the people... And the shark dive was superb. Thanks also to the people on the island, those in Ravi Ravi and Rukua. It was great to talk to the villagers, seeing pandanus mats made and how kava plants are cut up and processed.     Jackie - Jan 2009

After we were over the shock at being lucky enough to have found such a beautiful resort with good food and great people! We played like seals, in the water for 7 days straight!  The diving was the best in 30 years. The natives were the best of any people I've ever met world wide. The kitchen staff was accommodating and friendly and very warm. The dive staff was the best hands down I’ve ever been diving with! I can't give this resort enough credit for its friendly staffing. So I won't waste any words because it would take away from the excellent service they offered every day. Two thumbs up Mark can I live there for the rest of my life? “Joe” Dive masters were so attentive, helpful, and thoughtful and a real joy to be around. They were the most professional in the world.

We loved your resort and the diving. Thank You for making our stay wonderful. The dive staff was great(Hi Misy and Dix) The food was good, and fast! NO FIJI TIME HERE. Thank you, Mark for giving us personal service. Our transfer to the other resort ran smoothly and we are sure that at least part of this, if not all of it, was your doing. We hope to see you again soon.     Chuck and Misty - Jun 2008
