Beautiful walk and vistas, along shorelines and into the tropical jungle interior, culminating in a swim beneath the waterfall. Lunch provided by Taveuni Island Resort for us - sandwiches or chicken salad. We returned by boat - worth doing.

This walk is so easy with breathtaking ocean views. Its worth every dollar and accommodation is available at a reasonable price. Public transport is available but recommend a taxi to spent "Fiji time" walk.

Great experience which had it all - swimming, hiking, boat ride and adventure. The guides are really helpful in navigating the couple of tricky parts, especially when the current is really strong after lots of rain.
