Christa from Fiji
“Natadola is a beautiful beach with excellent snorkeling. We go there most weekends. Unfortunately it is being turned into a rubbish dump. The Intercontinental and Yatule resort keep the areas in front of their properties clean and tidy, but the other side of the beach is marred and littered with rubbish dumped under the trees. I assume this is done by locals, as it's not just one or two empty containers left behind by tourists. These are big clumps of household rubbish. This can only harm the tourism industry in the long term. The same mindset can be seen when driving along the local roads (I'm not talking about Denerau or the resorts). Fiji is being turned into a rubbish dump and nobody seems to care, least of all the authorities. Such a pity!”
