The locals and their children were all so friendly and welcoming. Guided tour of the village with Gary Cooper and his gorgeous family. Loved this experience so much. Great souvenir shop across the road from the village, reasonably priced.

the ideal Fijian village with a lot of friendly people and warm hospitality that will blow you away. And also where the Baravi Handicraft is located where we bought a lot of souvenirs. Just awesome to check out and you wont regret it.
