Spent the day at Malamala. Day was lovely, service was great. Recommend water socks as the sand on this island is full of chunky coral and very course. If you have a chance to reserve a cabana, I'd recommend doing so, to not feel rushed to find a chair when getting off the boat. But we didn't have anything reserved and found decent chairs with shade. When getting off the pier, cabanas are mostly to the left of the pier, available lounge chairs have some to the left of the pier, but most are to the right of the pier. However most of the nice sandy beach area to wade into the water is to the left of the pier. After finding a chair, go check in. The boat ride is fairly quick as they use a motorboat to get you there via South Sea, which gives you plenty of time to stay on the island. There are 2 options to leave the island, the early and late boats, both go back to Port Denarau, but the first one is the only one that will have a coach bus if you are staying on the Coral Coast. We misunderstood and thought only the first boat goes to the Coral Coast and not Port. But they both go back into Port Denarau. Nice island, nice staff, nice day.
