Absolutely loved this hike! It has some of the most picturesque views and breathtaking sites of our entire 3 weeks in Fiji. We actually did this hike twice in one week. Once we hiked it all the way there and back, just my husband and I. We talked to someone at the welcome center and they informed us that we... More

about one hour drive each way, then some 5 km walk to a brilliant setting. Make sure you hire a guide $15 worth every cent

Amazing hike and we were able to swim around the falls and slide down them. Simone was a great guide.

Beautiful hike, takes around 2h30 one way so plan your time smartly. They have a great hanging bridge and waterfall at the end is ok but not as great as the Bouma one. Still this is a fantastic hike!

Some folks hire a guide, but it's easy to follow the coastal path that meanders through lush rain forest. If a local asks you to 'come and have a rest' he may be about to whack open a fresh green coconut for a mere $2 Fiji. Delicious. The waterfall is picture postcard stuff...to swim right up to the falls you... More

A must see, it is Fiji beauty like few others! If you can, take a boat up the coast, waterfalls everywhere!

We had a wonderful guide named Gabriel who has been doing this for 15 years. Three of us (women) first rented sea kayaks as part of the same trip. Gabe took us out for about an hour and we were followed by one of his boats. We then hiked to 2 different waterfalls and swam at the base of both... More

Loved the coastal walk, u can find starfish, sea shells etc. Exotic plants along the way. The swim to the waterfall made all the difference. Let the waterfall splashes on your head, it's simply magical!!

Really nice walk along the coast. I was glad that my friends and I didn't take a guide because there is no need as it's a very straight forward trail. The water falls at the end were really enjoyable, and a great way to cool off! I would recommend setting off early from your accommodation as there is aublic bus... More

First off, we were so happy we didn't get talked into a guide. There was absolutely no problem finding our way as it is very clearly marked. We went a little later in the morning, and by the time we hit the waterfall the last group with a guide was leaving. We had the place all to ourselves, and loved... More
