If you are a nature lover then Taveuni Island is a paradise for you with its abundant natural features and high level of endemic flora and fauna.

The high rainfall within the island produces some spectacular waterfalls.  The moisture, combined with the fertile volcanic soil creates a thick carpet of vegetation.  The dense, virgin rainforest around the island is festooned with orchids and ferns.

This combined with the relatively low impact of population, limited logging, and no introduced mongoose (as on the other main islands of Fiji), has made Taveuni the envy of Fiji for its natural wilderness, wildlife and conservation value.
