TREKKING - Our peninsula has moderate hiking trails, which can each be covered comfortably within 30-45 minutes. The trails are defined rainforest-like ridgetop paths that provide access to private beaches. Along the trails are strategically placed view decks and lookouts, allowing you to enjoy exquisite rainbows, dramatic sunsets, ancient fishponds and spectacular vistas for hundreds of miles.

Korolevu - In the Somosomo Strait with three beautiful secluded beaches. A great place for a picnic or snorkelling. Waterslide - Situated amongst the rainforest provides fun and thrills! Bouma Falls - consists of 3 separate and beautiful waterfalls. The first is an easy walk, and has a small swimming lake for swimming. The second and third entail some minor trekking. At the top, there are beautiful views out to the ocean. Boat journey to Taveuni, plus one hour by vehicle. Lavena - Takes about 20 minutes by vehicle past Bouma, but your journey will be amply rewarded by the famous Lavena Beach (where the film Blue Lagoon II was filmed), and a pleasant rainforest trek to a secluded waterfall. This waterfall is situated in its own 'amphitheatre' - a unique and stunning setting. Kioa Island - Kioa was bought by people from Tuvalu in 1947 and they still have their very own traditions and language. Watch a traditional Fatelle (dance)
