One of the most picturesque villages in Fiji, this one retains the traditional bures (thatched huts supported by center poles) that have been replaced in other villages by prefabricated concrete homes.

It was beautiful time with friendly people and a fascinating anthropological experience. From Ba, turn inland towards Navala. It soon becomes a gravel road but is passable in a 2WD car when dry. Download google maps as there are many wrong turn offs you can...More

Beautiful setting, rough road in, interesting village but little substance other than coughing up $30 pp to go into the village. Clan chief disinterested but happy to take the money. Felt like caught in a scam so I wouldn't recommend this one.

It was hit by a recent cyclone but amazingly, it is still in good shape. The village has great tradition and history. The chief is a nice person. He did go to an extent to help me out. Highly recommend to go in a tour

The village code meant that I could not wear my hat which was important for me as I had had two melanomas removed and dozens of BCC"s. Residents were wonderful.
