Savusavu Bay is now open as second Blue Lanes port

Fiji Sun 25 March 2021 – Following the approval of more than 100 yachts through Fiji’s Blue Lanes initiative, the Fijian Government’s COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Taskforce (CRMT) has approved Savusavu Bay – known as Fiji’s “hidden paradise” – as the nation’s second Blue Lanes Yacht Port.

The Blue Lanes initiative was pioneered through the Fijian COVID Safe Economic Recovery Framework to allow a safe restart for Fiji’s growing blue tourism industry.

Following consultations with the local community and the deployment of relevant officials to the Northern Division, Savusavu Port now joins Port Denarau as one of two designated port of entries for yachts arriving to Fiji.

Fiji has served as the Pacific’s hub for blue tourism throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, as the Blue Lanes initiative has allowed for crew changes for Superyachts, quarantine–holiday for high-end yachties, bunkering and provisioning, and the accommodation of yachts serving humanitarian purposes during Fiji’s recent harrowing cyclone season.
