Beqa Island - Fiji Highlights:
Firewalkers, Snorkelling, Diving
Beqa Island (pronounced Mbengga) is one of a group of islands in the the Republic of Fiji, in the South Pacific. It is a small island lying 5 miles south of Navua, the closest town on the Fiji main island of Viti Levu, separated by a sea passage. Formed as a strato-volcano 5 million years ago, there is a fringing reef around the island and the barrier reef (68 km) around the lagoon of Beqa. They are both made up of colourful coral developed over hundreds of years.

Beqa is the island of the firewalkers the Sawau tribesmen who carry on the tradition passed down to them through generations. For two weeks before the event, the chosen participants observe special prohibitions to purify themselves to walk on the stones, which have recorded temperatures of over 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. View an authentic firewalking ceremony, snorkel, or dive in the beautiful waters.

Captain C. Bentley was the first European landing in Beqa in 1799. In late 19th century the Polynesian Company started business on some of the Fiji islands including Beqa. After that period Beqa became part of the Colony of Fiji under the British Crown.
