After that, you will be bring to the Island Villifushi using speed boat, because the aircraft may only resort decent landing a distance from Villifushi.

Although you will be greeted by a fairly blistering hot weather, you should not miss fishing activities. Because fishing in the waters of this island is very easy, no skill. While you place your bait with a barge, you can get a fish with a fairly large size. And fresh fish can be found if you directly.

So do not be surprised if this place you will be treated to a variety of foods that you’ve probably never felt like a piece of tuna fish, boiled without skin and bones and is only eaten with fresh chili and lime
