Careful the local bus might get you there but it may not pick you up and take you back. The 2:00pm bus just never showed up for me I waited 2 hours. It's a long way out for no transportation back to town.

The best part of the waterfalls in Taveuni are that, unlike others, they seem really secluded. It is like you almost have the whole forest and falls to yourself, especially the 2nd and 3rd which I wager are sparsely visited due to the required hike (not difficult but pretty long). At least when we went, we found 2nd and 3rd... More

The Bouma falls all three of them was a great hike. From the first one to the 3rd took us 2 hours altogether to complete but was well worth the effort. The scene at the very top was just fabulous. So close to heaven and breathtaking beautiful. Parrots we even saw an orange dove. Great hike.

This easy access to the first waterfall is a must do on Taveuni island. It doesn't look real it is so beautiful. For the more adventurous types a trek to the second and third falls is a must. The views are breath taking.

Don't stop at the first waterfalls. It is worth going up to the second one. Beautiful nature, flowers and beautiful mountain top views on your way to the second waterfall.

Expect it to be hot and steamy but that only makes the dip at the first waterfall on the return trip all the more enjoyable We didn't go to the 3rd waterfall...running out of energy. It's a steep pull in a couple of places but we're in our late 50's and didn't have a problem.

A very scenic place, with beautiful green hills and vegetation. I recommend seeing it, but do not stay here. Stay in Matei and catch the bus for the day.

There are 3 different waterfalls within walking distance. The first fall is a short walk and there were families swimming and picknicking there. The second waterfall is worth the walk and there is a rivercrossing that would be difficult at high water. There is a rope crossing the river to help you ford and this may not be for the... More

The minibus trip from the Garden Island Resort in Waiyevo to the Bouma Waterfalls was a most exhilarating and nostalgic trip down memory lane. The journey along firstly tar-sealed just past Matei Airport then pebble road the rest of the way was just over an hour trip but most worthwhile with the beautiful scenery opening out in front of us....

This hike is not for the faint of heart but well worth it. The waterfalls are gorgeous. I would make sure to see Waterfall #1 and #3 and skip #2. We hiked this with our 2 and 3 year old but had a guide help us carry them on and off. This is a must while staying on the island.... More
