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 is a historical site so don't go expecting to "see" the history, but to learn about it and the ways of the olden times. Personally I loved this. We did this in the rain and had a blast doing it. The lovely host lady...More

Yes a taxi is the best way. This is the way we went. I am sorry iI cannot remember the cost. The path is steep but you should be OK because if you go by taxi it will just be you.
