Sigatoka Sand Dunes

Sigatoka Sand Dunes — this vast stretch of dunes spans an impressive 650 hectares, forming a magnificent barrier between Viti Levu’s lush interior and the southern Pacific Ocean. Some of the dunes offer incredible views back upon the island’s emerald hills and out towards the deep blue coastline. These sand dunes are now a national park and are protected by the Fiji government.

Sigatoka has interesting archaeological digs which reveal pottery shards dating back over 2,600 years, as well as human remains. Excavations support assertions by archaeologists that Fiji’s early inhabitants were the Lapita people – a prehistoric people thought to have lived in the Pacific. Sigatoka also has one of the largest burial sites in the Pacific.
