This was one of the highlights of our trip to taveuni Island. We had a wonderful walk and swim up to 2 waterfalls. The views were special and it felt like we were walking a deserted undiscovered island. We took the boat back which was really worthwhile

It's a relatively flat and easy walk and while it can be done in flip-flops, I recommend sturdier river-type shoes. You do have to cross some shallow streams.

Take a tour or arrange your own trip. We chose to go to Lavena Coastal Walk and not Tavaro waterfalls and were very happy with our choice. We caught a bus to village at start of Lavena Coastal Walk and asked how to arrange for a guide. We were directed to a woman's home who organises the guides. Wonderful walk... More

We hiked up to the waterfall, it was about a 1 1/2 hour hike. It was a beautifuol walk and the trail is well maintained.Swam under the waterfall. It was so pristine and remote, I feel like it was a taste of the real Fiji

This is a fairly easy hike though fording the river (the bridge is out) may be challenging for some depending on the water level/ tides. The hike passes along the beautiful coast line and ends at an impressive waterfall.

Half day hike along the coast to the waterfall, guided by a villager. The scenery is stunning and varied, with beach, cliff, lush rainforest and a swim in the waterfall. It's worth getting the boat back if you can and seeing the other waterfall that is only accessible by boat.

The town of Lavena was extensively damaged during the cyclone, and is still rebuilding. The tourist centre is temporarily being run from a shelter beside a house whilst the new one is being built, and the income from tourism is much needed just now to help the local people get back on their feet. The coastal scenery is as beautiful... More

Although possible to walk without a guide we decided to take advantage of the village guide who was worth the small fee charged. He was informative and treated us to fresh coconut which he found on our trail. Swimming in the waterfall pool was brilliant although we did not try to jump from the top as he did!

I did the lovely Coastal Walk, which is no longer FJ$15, but now $25, which is pretty expensive just to take a walk. The family I stayed with told me that it was flat and would take about an hour and a half, but I found it fairly strenuous for my short legs, lots of uphill climbs on slippery rocks,... More
