NuraiFest really did things right in year one. The whole thing was well organised, with sound systems that were nice and loud and clear, and plenty of tasty food options that put most to shame. It all starts with an exciting 10/15 minute boat ride from the mainland to the island where the festival itself is held – some lucky few actually managed to be staying on the island resort itself.
And that island is breathtaking, with stunning ocean views and long, white sand beaches that are warm beneath your feet. The sunsets each night were absolute stunning and added real drama to the musical soundtracks of each stage. They were all well designed, with tropical and lush organic vibes making them extra special and all the staff in the hotel, bars, airport and food places were happy to see us, welcoming friendly and helpful.
