Taveuni’s wild interior makes it perfect for exploring on foot. Our local guide will lead you on hikes from Paradise allowing you to discover rainforests, rare birds, local fruits and more about the culture of Taveuni and the Fijian people.
Bouma National Heritage Park & Lavena Coastal Walk
Enjoy a scenic coastal drive to the Bouma National Heritage Park to discover the beauty of the Tavoro Waterfalls. There are three waterfalls here, each with natural swimming pools. A 10-minute walk takes you to the most famous waterfall of Fiji. There you can decide whether to go onward to the picturesque second and third falls. If you bring your snorkeling gear, you’ll be able to see the hundreds of prawns in the water.
You may also wish to experience another one of Taveuni’s natural wonders – The Lavena Coastal Walk. A 3-hour return hike along a coastal rainforest track leads to another tropical waterfall. About halfway along the trek, watch for the bizarre rock pedestals formed by the erosion of the coral base along the coast. Further ahead is a suspension bridge. To reach the falls at the end of the trail, you have to clamber over rocks and swim a short distance through two deep pools.
Return to Paradise, stopping along the way at the Waitavala Waterslide, a natural waterslide made from the erosion of water over rocks making the stones smooth to slide down.
Cannibal Cave Tour
A short walk from the resort & you arrive at a hidden underground cave. This mysterious cannibal prison is made from lava rock. Wonder at the ancient legends of the cave & look for old bones from days gone by. Discover mud pools within the cave that were once used for their healing properties. This is an eerie journey into the lost culture of these remarkable islands.
Southern Taveuni Tour
Visit the white sandy beach of Vuna and the famous ‘Southern Blowhole’, the only blowhole on Taveuni. It was created by the forces of nature combining volcanic molten lava and the cooling attributes of the ocean. Water on the incoming tide can shoot up to 50 metres into the sky.
