Taveuni Sights

Bouma National Heritage Park

Updated 06/22/2011

Fodor's Review

Taveuni got the nickname "Garden Island of Fiji" for this multifaceted park covering almost 259 square km (100 square mi), or nearly a third of the island. The park's four villages offer guided walks, waterfall visits, snorkeling off traditional rafts, a hike, and bird-watching through the virgin rain forest and along the pristine coast. The Lavena Coastal Walk is a scenic walk past rain forest and traditional gardens of cassava, papaya, kava, and other crops, over

a river to pristine waterfalls and a swimming hole. The trail begins at Lavena village, 6 km (3.7 mi) south of the park entrance, and passes great swimming and snorkeling spots as it traces the coast. It's a four-hour walk round-trip, but makes an enjoyable half-day or longer. Groups of four or more can also take a three-hour boat tour to seven waterfalls inaccessible on foot and walk back along the coast, if they so choose.
