Taveuni (island) – this is the third-largest island in Fiji, after Viti Levu (Fiji Island) and Vanua Levu, with a total land area of 434 sq. kilometers. The cigar-shaped island, a massive shield volcano which rises from the floor of the Pacific Ocean, is located 6.5 km. east of Vanua Levu, across the Somosomo Strait. Taveuni is known as the Garden Island for good reason: Lush jungle, gorgeous beaches, secluded waterfalls and abundant wildlife make Taveuni an eco-tourist’s dream.
With the Bouma National Heritage Park making up more than a third of the island, and an extensive marine park at Waitabu – home to world-renowned dive sites such as Eel Reef and the Great White Wall – Taveuni is the place to go if you want to immerse yourself in nature.
