Cultural History Walk

Explore the Rich History of Sau Bay...

Fijians that historically settled at Sau Bay did so due to the shelter and protection that the bay offers.  In fact, the indigenous Fijians constructed an ancient fish trap, called at Moka, right at our Resort.

A moka is a traditional stone enclosure heaped together as part of a fish trap. The circular enclosure is filled up during high tide and traps fish within it when the tides goes out. To allow fish into the stone fence, it has a mouth, which is sealed off during fish drives.

The Moka is visible from the air as shown in the photograph.  It is also possible to see the structure at low tide.
