“Fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2010

We hired a car in Nadi and drove to the Sigatoka Sand Dunes, Tavuni Hill Fort and Kula Eco Park in one day. This was well worth doing and very easy to get around. The only problem was we missed the sign for the fort so if you are self driving make sure you watch carefully for the turn off. We also didn't have the correct amount of cash so had to go back to Sigatoka - recommend making sure you have enough cash - $12 each for adults.

Anyway even after these setback I was very glad we went. If you do not take the offer of a free guide (we didn't) they give you a little pamphlet that outlines all the important sights. You can see foundations for houses, a couple of burial mounds, ceremonial sites, a killing stone, a pretty amazing fig tree and spectacular views of the Sigatoka river. It is a very interesting insight into the historical side of Fiji.

“Must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2006

We visited the fort in Feb 2006 and thought it was great. The drive from Sigatoka was not far, but the last part was very steep. There is a sign just over the bridge heading towards Suva.
Once at the top there is a hut and a young girl there took us for a tour to the top telling us about the history of the place.
The view from the top was spectacular, worth the climb which was not to hard. We got some great photos. It cost us $12 each but it was well worth it.
Would recomend it to any one.
