Best Beaches on Taveuni Island

Taveuni’s best beaches lie scattered around the northern tip of the island and along the southeast coast, including the following…

Lavena Beach

Sunbathe, swim or snorkel from this gorgeous white-sand beach – used in the Hollywood movie Return to the Blue Lagoon. Later, follow the beachside walking trail through nearby rainforest to the stunning Wainabau waterfall.

The beach is located near the southern coastal village of Lavena, a great place to stop for refreshments and browse for locally made handicrafts.

Matei Beach

Explore a scattering of gorgeous white-sand beaches, framed by rocky headlands and located near the small town of Matei on the northern coast.

Nearby, on the northwest shore, you can discover some of Taveuni’s best resorts, including the Taveuni Palms Beach, which nestles among swaying palm trees fronting a secluded white-sand beach that gently shelves into the turquoise waters of a private cove.

Further south sits the Taveuni Island Resort, positioned on a bluff overlooking a private beach.

Beverly Beach

Framed by black volcanic headlands and located just a short stroll from the nearby Maravu Plantation and Beach Resort, this long, narrow crescent of white sand is fringed by stands of huge ancient vutu trees that perfume the air from sweet smelling pink and white flowers.

Beverly Beach is the perfect spot for sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and kayaking.
