Discover a range of top things to do on Taveuni Island, including waterfall hikes, coastal walks, horseback riding, snorkelling, dolphin watching, kayaking, deep sea fishing and scuba diving at world-class dive sites – just perfect for active couples on a honeymoon or romantic getaway holiday.
Choose from a network of trails that weave along the shore into the Bouma National Heritage Park and up to Lake Tagimaucia. Or hire a boat and visit one or more of the offshore islands that also offer opportunities to hike through native rainforest, spotting indigenous flora and fauna along the way.
Explore some of Taveuni’s vast coconut plantations on horseback. Try Maravu Plantation and Beach Resort, which offers horseback riding through the resort grounds that were once a thriving coconut plantation. Elsewhere, other resorts offer horseback rides through neighbouring plantations that date back to Fiji's colonial past.
Make the most of the Taveuni Island’s magical sunsets on a sunset cruise into the Somosomo Strait from Maravu Beach Plantation Resort & Spa.
Explore the many pretty coves, islets and bays that dot Taveuni's coastline. Paddle out to the three rocky islets that sit off the north shore, snorkel the reef or picnic on the nearby beach. Most island resorts offer complimentary sea kayaks.
Taveuni offers great snorkelling right off the beach and around the many offshore islets. Or take an excursion further afield to Rainbow Reef or Korolevu Island to swim amid a myriad of colourful reef fish.
Swim among colourful pelagic fish, turtles and reef sharks at the world famous Rainbow Reef, located in Somosomo Strait between the islands of Taveuni and Vanua Levu. Most 5-star resorts offer PADI instruction and can provide equipment rentals.
Hook up a charter and chase down marlin, tuna, wahoo, walu or mahi-mahi on a fishing trip; easily arranged from most resorts.
