The Waterfalls, the Village, the people of Lavena...all outstanding. One of our favorite activities on Taveuni. Don't miss the boat ride to the falls and hike in and swim in the Falls pool. Very Memorable.

This easy walk with a guide takes you along the very pretty east coast of Taveuni. A few interesting rivers to cross and lovely views of the ocean. We opted for the walk to the waterfalls and a boat ride back to Lavena. It was...More
