For practical purposes, Savusavu has only one street, and that runs along the shore for about 1.5km (1 mile). It has no official name, but everyone calls it Main Street. The Copra Shed, an old warehouse that has been turned into modern shops and a cafe, stands about midway along the shore. The airlines have their offices in the Copra Shed, along with the Savusavu Yacht Club and restaurants. A bit farther along is Waitui Marina, where cruising yachties come ashore.

Highlights of a stroll along the bay-hugging street are the gorgeous scenery and the volcanic hot springs. Steam from underground rises from the beach on the west end of town, and you can see more white clouds floating up from the ground between the sports field and the school, both behind the BP service station. A concrete pot has been built to make a natural stove in which local residents place meals to cook slowly all day. Overlooking the springs and bay, the Savusavu Hot Springs Hotel has great views.
