Owner description: Sculptured through the workings of wind, water and vegetation, the Sigatoka Sand Dunes stand out as one of Fiji's most unique wonders. In 1989, 390 acres of the Sigatoka Sand Dunes was established as Fiji's first National Park- The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park. A key contributor to its protection is the archaeological treasures buried beneath the dune sands. These artefacts have contributed to the history of man's first arrival in Fiji. Today, evidence of this past continue to be unearthed by the wind. The Park is home to a unique Dune forest which is now home to a myriad of wildlife. Some notable inhabitants of this forest include the Fijian Swallow tail Butterfly, the fruit bats, the Goshawks, the giant stick insects and cryptic Pacific Boa. The National Park is a Fijian heritage, rich in both natural and cultural attributes.

This was an interesting walk with beautiful scenery. The sand dunes were amazing with mountain and ocean views. The return walk was through a beautiful rainforest setting. The walk was excellent excercise and was well worth the visit. Our guide was informative and very helpful. You should wear runners and take water. We did the short walk which took about 1 hour. We loved our time here and would certainly do this again. Highly recommended.

We were a bit skeptical about this walking / trekking site but within the first 15 mins of walk our doubts were laid to rest.

The boys in the information centre are not very inspiring, but they have done a tremendous job to preserve this beach, sand dunes and the associated forests.

There are two treks a two hour long one and an hour long one. Considering that I was recovering from a hamstring injury we decided to take the shorter trek. The trek includes 3 steep climbs ( 2 on sand dunes and one in forest). The claims are not very difficult and can be easily managed by a person of any fitness levels.

After the first forest climb you reach a vantage point which gives way to spectacular views overlooking a forest onto the beach and the sea.

After the further two sand dune climbs you reach a magnificent beach. It's a pity it's not safe for swimming and encounters with sharks have happened in the past. But it's one of the cleanest natural beaches I have come across.

Thereafter you make your way back via the well preserved and sign posted Forrest.

Overall it took us 90 mins I compete the walk and that's because we spent a good 30 mins on the beach clicking photographs and enjoying the cool water to refresh our feet (which were burning due to hot sand).

Things to remember:

1. Carry a litre of water per person; it can get hot and humid
2. Try to do this on an overcast day or during morning or evening cooler temp.
3. Remember to enjoy

$10 per head was a bit steep for us as the people at the info centre were not really inspiring! They did not give us any real reason to go the next step!

Despite the tiring walk up and down the sandy hills, the vew is all worth the view.
I wouldn't recommend the walk for unfit people as it can get quite challenging at times.

We had a great time; took us about 40 mins to do the 'short walk'. The guy at the beginning of the park was really lovely and showed us exactly where to go, and we found the entire place to be absolutely beautiful.

However it was a little difficult in some parts. I would definitely wear proper walking shoes, take water, and wear sunscreen/hat/clothes that will prevent sunburn. You also can't swim at the beach you walk along, because it's too dangerous.

I probably wouldn't recommend taking really young kids (unless you are happy to carry them/help them up some bits), but older ones would have a great time.

Definitely not wheelchair/stroller/pram accessible.

However would recommend, the beach is really amazing to look out over, the hilltops had beautiful views and some of the vegetation and animals were great to look at.

There is also a 'long walk' for those more avid hikers, that takes 5 hours. For that again I would just suggest take lots of water and really make sure you are prepared for a hike.
