Several villages are based on Naviti Island, including Gunu, Kese, Marou, Muere, Malevu, Somosomo, and Soso (a chiefly village, home to the current chief - "ratu"). Each of them is interconnected by several trails. The Island is also home to Yasawa High School, which is the only high school in Yasawa Islands, though in most villages there are primary schools and kindergartens. The main economic activity on Naviti Island is centred on resort hotels. Several of them are found around the isle. Naviti is also a popular base for voluntourism.
