Set amid mountains and on a river, this charming authentic village includes more than 200 thatch bures aligned in the shape of a cross around a rara, or village green. Beside the village is a rural school and a Catholic church. Visitors are required to present a sevusevu (literally "presentation," a ceremonial gift), traditionally a bundle of yaqona or kava, to the village chief. They might then have the chance to take part in a traditional kava ceremony before being led
on a village tour. The village is in the Navala Valley roughly 26 km inland from the town of Ba, a winding hour's drive away (buses run daily).
