Before putting up Gold Coast Inn, I used to work for an island resort where I met my husband. I worked there 15 years and thought it would be nice to start my own where I could show people our traditional lifestyle. What is great about Gold Coast Inn is the simple shared traditional way of life. We are a very small operation, and therefore special.
I was the first woman to start operating accommodation in this region and at the time I started it was very hard. The Yasawa flyer didn't operate then so people came on small (often overloaded) boats spending most of the day travelling from Lautoka.
Now access is much easier and tourism development in the region is offering young people a new chance in life with better education.
We have good snorkelling, fishing and other water activities in the area and can also arrange a visit to a small local farmer who uses traditional organic farming techniques and supplies us with produce.
