We didnt do the walk - but took the bus to Lavena and back. This is an adventure in itself and very interesting. The buses are windowless providing natural air-conditioning. The bus will stop at a shop and wait while someone goes to buy their bread (or whatever). The scenery is magnificent and and your fellow passengers interesing and friendly. Just make sure that you have the timetable sorted so there is a bus returning the same day!!

My wife and I really enjoyed this walk. Initially the walk is alongside the coast. We saw a couple of villages. They are still recovering from Cyclone Winston. There's one tricky river crossing. My tip is keep your thongs on as the rocks are rough if you have soft feet and are very slippery. Of course you can take your chances and risk falling in :)!!

The track heads inland up a pretty valley to Lavena Falls. We decided to swim up to the Falls. Heaps of fun and a bit of work near the falls due to the strong currents. Well worth the effort.

We had a lovely lunch in a hut by the beach on our way back.

Highly recommended

While visiting Taveuni my family spent an afternoon doing the Lavena Coastal Walk and loved it. We took about an hour with a guide to walk to the Lavena waterfall which is amazing. After walking thru the rain forest, and along beautiful beaches, we arrived at a river. We had been advised to bring along our fins which we put on and swam the last several hundred yards to a beautiful waterfall and pool. The water was refreshing and our daughter climbed to the top of the falls and jumped off, about 50 feet, she loved it. I would suggest paying the small fee of less than $10 to get a local guide who gave us lots of information on the area and people. A great way to spend an afternoon.

It's a not too difficult walk, mostly along the coast and just a little bit steepy in the final segment to the waterfalls. Landscapes are beautiful, and waterfalls so nice and refreshing!
It take around a couple of hours each way, so I recommend to take a boat to come back. Better to wear reef shoes or walking shoes.
