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

This was a great trip. We Kayaked there and we're able to kayak ahead a bit further and see another waterfall. We then walked to the falls that were stunning. Not a strong swimmer, I found swimming against the current into the falls was a bit challenging but I managed it. I just wore biniki with shorts and t-shirt. Wild... More

If you are in Taveuni, you won't miss the lavena walk. It is a beautiful day trip ending in a breathtaking double waterfall. But the best we had was our guide, as all Fijians he was extremely friendly and explained every plant we passed by.

Having done some cannoning and waterfall exploring in Japan and Canada, I can honestly say the Boat tour and trek at Lavena was the most amazing day trek we have ever done. The waterfalls and pool meeting wight he ocean create a turquoise that is so unparalleled. Even on a rainy overcast day (as it most often is in Taveuni)... More

We hiked this our last day and I can only say I wish we had more time. We hiked it with out 2 and 3 year old but had help from our guides to carry the children on and off. This hike is breathtaking rain or shine. I would make a full day out of this and really take your... More

This Coastal walk was one of the reasons I went to go to the island. and it was such a beautiful walk, it was 10 km. waching locals, watherfall, walking over a brigh and a great view. It's worth going there. A walk i never will forget.

Gabriel was a great guide. If you're daring - take the 45ft leap from the falls - exhilarating! The tea at the end was lovely.......

The roundtrip is roughly 3 hours, and we did it on the day we were leaving Taveuni. It was so much fun even without the kayak option (we didn't know that existed)... scary looking bridges, beautiful scenery, and we had a singing guide! He showed us some of the flora and fauna, landmarks, and even parts of the local village.... More
