The third largest barrier reef in the world.

Nukubati Island is the only resort with direct access to the Great Sea Reef. It has an area of around 202,700 kilometres and 200 kilometres in length.

According to the WWF, a recent survey of the Great Sea Reef showed that it is home to 55% of all the known coral reef fish species in Fiji, 74% of all the known coral species, 44% of the known marine flora and 44% of Fiji’s endemic reef fish species.
