Taveuni is known as the “Garden Island of Fiji’ and is relatively untouched by the outside world. Approximately 80% of the Island is part of the Bouma National Park which provides the basis of the eco-orientated activities such as hiking, waterfall excursions, natural water slides and bird watching.

The secluded beaches found along the Lavena Coastal Walk is the location where scenes of the 1990’s movie “The Return of the Blue Lagoon” was filmed.


The significant amount of water that is required to pass between Taveuni and the mainland between high and low tides results in strong ocean currents that create the perfect conditions for the formation of soft and hard coral reefs. Accordingly, the Rainbow Reef is considered one of the most spectacular diving and snorkelling reefs within the Pacific Islands. Dive sites such as the world famous Great White Wall attract enthusiasts and journalists world wide to witness the underworld beauty (see National Geographic November 2004 issue).
