3. Tavuni Hill Fort

  • Open: M-F 8am-5pm/Sat. 8.30am-1.30pm

Tavuni Hill Fort, situated in the Sigatoka Valley, has it's origins in 1788 when the eldest son of the Tongan king at the time, fled Tonga due to political and social unrest. His descendants are found in various villages in Fiji today.  The fort is situated on a 90m limestone ridge with spectacular views all around.

Car, bus, taxi, and by foot can get you here.

4. Naihehe Caves

  • Location: 1 hour upriver from Sigatoka
  • Cost: check with tour operator

As with Tavuni Hill Fort, the huge Naihehe Cave has an interesting history. Long ago it too was used as a fort and today you can still see the ritual platform and the cannibal oven (see Fiji native section). Look away if you are squeamish!

How much fun and how much you learn about the eye-opening history depends entirely on your tour guide/company. You'll need a good torch/head-lamp, which should be provided.

5. Coral Coast Scenic Railway

  • Location: Queens Rd, Yanuca (11 km west of Sigatoka) at Shangri-La Resort causeway entrance
  • Cost: full day - $91 / half day - $38, children under 12 is half (prices may have risen)
  • Phone: 652 0434

This is a wonderful coastal scenic ride on an old diesel sugar train. Along the coast it takes you past plantations, forests, villages, and a beach. There are 2 options:

  1. full-day trip to Natadola Beach
  2. half-day shopping trip to Sigatoka

A neat idea is to buy $2 bags of lollies/sweets/candy to throw to the village children as they eagerly wait for the train to pass by. Book through your resort.
