I walked here from the coast in the heat so it was all the most refreshing to have a dip in the pools. There was nobody else here and more importantly no kids to show the proper technique so I only took a tentative slide....More

You can access this slide after a very short walk from where you park your car. Good idea to wear water shoes especially if there's been recent rain (as things can get a little slippery). Its not a super long slide - but is if...More

Can be hard to find, make sure you get detailed directions before you go. Wear your mosquito repellent all day - mozzies seen hungry all day. Can be done in flip-flops, but sturdy shoes are even better. According to our kids (10 and 14 years...More

A must-do experience on Taveuni. My husband, daughter, and I had a blast going down the waterfall. We went with a local guide which is a must on your first trip to give you tips and advice on where to cross the river and where...More

Local kids were great to watch and were awesome at cheering on our group of middle age balding tubby blokes and our kids. You just have to give this a go.

Due to the heavy rains, we could not do this in June. The river was excellent if you want Class 5 kayaking that day, but we were out of luck for the water sliding. If it's raining hard, just do the waterfall. It was a...More
