Beautiful views from the top of the fort and an interesting history however the paths are very poorly kept and some of the wooden structures are falling down. I'd give the viewing platform a miss as it was crooked and the drop underneath is pretty steep if it was to give way.

Historical site with an amazing view, but poorly maintained and grass is overgrown. Sad that with a historical site that visitors are allowed to trample all over the mounds, more work on preservation should be carried out.The site platform is dangerous and would not recommend anyone to walk onto it for fear of it collapsing unless they repair it.

Rough track. Not maintained. Most markers didn't show anything really. Great view from the top though. Somewhat interesting but too expensive for what you see.

Great place to visit. Is a little run down but still very interesting and a historical treasure of Fiji. Open Monday to Saturday from about 0830 to 1700 depending a little on numbers I get the impression......worth the 5km trip from Sigatoka.

We went out on our own today exploring. We were on the hunt for two places. One is the Tuveni hillfort. This is the place were a Tongan chief settled when he left to come to Fiji in 1800s. The settlement is on a beautiful outcropping of limestone high above the Sigatoka river just north of Sigatoka. There are yavus... More

This is a really interesting place to visit. A slice of history of the local area, well signposted and informative. A bonus is a stunning view of the Sigatoka River below.

This understated site is full of Fijian history and well worth a visit and stroll around the area. A number of tours include this stop in their itineraries, some are better than others.

Very interesting. The guide was lovely and had a huge amount of knowledge. I really felt for the original inhabitants and how their lives were destroyed. However it is good to go to these places to get an appreciation of the culture and history of the people.

A beautifully place to discover some of Fiji's history, embedded in tribal warfare and cannibalism! The lady who showed us around was a direct descendant of the history of this fort and was very lovely and was very up to date of what the fort was and where it was heading.
