#3 of 14 in Nature in Fiji
Grab a map and delve into Bouma National Heritage Park, a wildlife reserve that protects the ancient rainforest, home to numerous waterfalls, exotic birds, and rare plants. Keep your eyes peeled for the tagimoucia flower, which only grows on this island and nowhere else in the world. Various trails wind through the rainforest, and you can choose according to your allotted time and fitness level. Take a leisurely walk to the first waterfall with a swimming hole. The pathways get more difficult from there, but they deliver visitors to increasingly beautiful waterfalls. Trek without fearing the dangers rainforests usually offer, as the island is completely free of poisonous and dangerous animals.

Where to stay in Taveuni Island

A few guesthouses and a campsite on Taveuni cater to those who don't want to break the bank, but the island's most popular accommodations remain its luxury resorts. These offer private bures (thatched bungalows), elegant infinity pools, spa pampering, and gourmet dining, with levels of extravagance to suit a range of budgets. The bus service is very lax on Taveuni, and taxis are scarce, so if you want to explore a particular part of the island, look for accommodation nearby. Most resorts will organize pickup from the airport.
