Historical site which isn't far from the local town Sigatoka. Certainly enjoyed the walk through history and to still see some of the ancient pottery still scattered around, along with old coral attached to some of the stones was amazing. I find it very hard to describe just how one feels when you are actually walking through history. This place... More

The lady who was there showed us everything we needed to know. A fist hand experience of where people lived in Fiji and the history of this village is fascinating. The view of the river below is spectacular and the drive to the village takes you through some beautiful villages in Fiji

This is a historical site so don't go expecting to "see" the history, but to learn about it and the ways of the olden times. Personally I loved this. We did this in the rain and had a blast doing it. The lovely host lady at the entrance/information centre was very worried and tried to give us all umbrellas (which... More

I attended Tavuni Hill Fort as part of a wedding. The ceremony was held at the top of the hill overlooking the Sigatoka river. Unfortunately I didn't get to explore any of the fort relics, but found the walk up the hill easy going...as a person who doesn't exercise that much, easy going for me means it's probably ridiculously easy....

We loved the amazing views from the top of the hill and as you could hear any sounds from the valley you can see why it was built here, as some of the other reviews stated it is very run down and when we spoke to the staff she said that it was due to be renovated. Seeing the last... More

We stopped here on the way home from another excursion. We were the only people here, and the lady curator took as on a tour of the fort. It was very interesting to hear the history. The kids particularly liked the goats wandering around, and seeing the lovu where unlucky prisoners used to get cooked! Beautiful views from the top.... More

This place is a little out of the way, and you do need good imagination to picture something out of the few ruins. But it offers great views of the area and it is a nice and shaded area for a little walk in the heat. There is a little info center as well that tells you a bit about... More
