Matacawa Levu is an island situated in the southern Yasawa group of Fiji archipelago in the South Pacific, north of Viti Levu Island. Matacawalevu is a 4-kilometer-long hilly volcanic island protected by Nasomo Bay on the eastern side. The Turtle Island (Nanuya Levu) lies to the east. To the south, across the protected lagoon that is used for seaweed farming, lies Yaqeta. The island has 2 villages: Matacawalevu on the northeast end and Vuake located in Nasomo Bay.

Matacawa Levu (meaning big beach) is a very beautiful village situated in the northern part of Yasawa Islands. Matacawalevu is famous for the proximity to the Blue Lagoon and the beach which in 1979 Brooke Shields walked in the famous film of the same name.

Matacawa Levu beachside village is quite small with just 42 houses and around 200 villagers. Many of them starred in the Blue Lagoon and an "evening with the 'cannibals'" is put on for cruise passengers - you get to meet the fascinating Fijians and hear anecdotes of what happened during making of the film. 

Matacawa Levu Island features soaring volcanic peaks, as well as interesting local shell and handicraft markets.
