Tavueni is a quiet town with friendly people around. You'll be smiling all the way greeting Bula with everyone you meet! it just makes you feel so welcome.
It's a nice place for relaxation and to enjoy the nature. A visit to Lavena coastal walk is great! They have kayaking (not so advisable if not used to open sea kayak), you can opt to take the boat instead to the triple waterfall and do a little bit of trekking. on the way back from Lavena, can always stop by Tavoro fall for a swim or just to take photos. there are all together 3 falls in Tavoro, the first fall is just 10min walk and apparently is the best. the other 2 will need longer time to trek. There are many great spots for scuba diving. We were not divers but went for a Discovery Scuba Dive and it was brilliant. Fantastic underwater experience! The papayas which is called pawpaw in Fijian are so sweet with nice aroma. We simply love it! The most unforgettable experience and make us want to go back to Tavueni is still the people. No matter they are local Fijians or foreigners living there, they are just so nice and friendly. The instructors of our dive, the tour guide for our coastal walk, they are so wonderful and really did their best to let us enjoyed the most of it. When we were in one of the shop in town, the locals just asked us in for a drink and chat with us even we didn't buy anything from them. And when we asked the other shop what bus to catch to get back to the hotel, the lady even walked with us to the station, asked the driver and sent us off.
