So today was a long day, 46 hours in total but a great way to spend my birthday.
We woke in time to go fish feeding in the reef again, then spent the day making the most of the sun, snorkelling around the island and then lying on the beach and in the hammock. We had the bure until 3pm, and after checking out spent the 2 hours before our boat transfer at the bar. Fiji Bitter is about £1.33 a pint (4FD), and was required to cool down. We were waved off by some of the staff singing a farewell song.
The boat ride took 45 mins and we arrived at Port Denarau where we stopped for dinner at a Indian/Asian fusion restaurant called Indigo for popadums and curry.
The flight from Nadi to Honolulu was ~6 hours and I caught up with some sleep as we were only 1/2 way through the day at this point.
Landing at 7am on the day we took off we arrive at the Coconut Waikiki Hotel about 8am and luckily our room is available. After having waffles for breakfast we unpack and walk though town to the beach. It's cloudy but warm, but when the sun comes out it's great. Waikiki beach is crowded, as it's a Sunday and the locals are out, with many surfers.
That evening we eat at an International House of Pancakes, and retire just after midnight... what a long day.
