Best to drum up some fellow travelers and hire a car/4WD (about F$170per day for a 4WD plus around F$30 for fuel) and do the waterfalls and coastal walk in one day. The waterfalls can be done in 3 hrs and the walk in 4...More

Nice gentle walk along the coast with superb views to a nice waterfall at the end. Experience real island life and meet up with some of the friendly Fijians

Amazing walk ending with the most amazing falls. Truly should be a "shampoo ad". A beautiful lunch supplied, amazing swimming holes, thunderous waterfalls and tranquil rainforests. A fantastic day out!

Really enjoyed the scenery. Need to be careful in the streams as they can be slippery. Great walk and recommend to all.

Green jungle, blue waters and a perfectly maintained trail. All the ingredients for a great hike. Oh and in the end you can swim in the falls, what else does one need?

They are different falls. It is worth doing both.
