How to Get There


Bus: Catching the public bus north from Wairiki jetty will cost you around FJ$3.00 and take about half an hour along the coastal road.

However, the bus only runs three times a day, (twice in the morning and once in the afternoon), so ask a local what times the bus runs and returns. From Matei airport, it takes about 5 minutes to get to Tovutovu and will cost around FJ$1.20.

Taxi: Catching a ride from the Wairiki wharf will cost you about FJ$30. If you are heading from Matei Airport, it will cost you about FJ$5.00.

What to do





Located near Matei, the "heart" of Taveuni, there is plenty of things to do such as diving, game fishing, adventure and cultural activities.

Good eating can be found at Vunibokoi Restaurant (located on the premises) or a number of quality restaurants.

Bouma National Park with Tavoro falls and Lavena Coastal Walk is just a bus ride away.

Reef snorkelling is always available as is kayaking and cycling.
