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.

What an amazingly beautiful place. A must go to whether by boat or walk to the waterfalls. Climb up and jump or slide down. Gecko climbing best. Xx

Without the bridge it makes this hike a little hard. You have to wade through deep water. But it was really nice anyway.

A beautiful walk along the coast and into the rain forest to a magnificent waterfall. The guide was very knowledgeable about the plants and birds we saw along the way.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Are the waterfalls at the end of the coastal walk the same as the Tavoro waterfalls or different ones? Is it worth it to spend half a day at the Tavoro waterfall and half a day doing the Lavena coastal walk?

They are different falls. It is worth doing both.
