Taveuni is known as the Garden Island and is an eco-tourist's dream with nature reserves harbouring an abundance of native plants and wildlife.
Also known for dive sites such as Eel Reef and the Great White Wall, an amazing drop-off covered in white soft coral, a Marine Park was established at Waitabu in 1990 which teems with fish and coral. Hikers and nature fans are equally well served with the Bouma National Heritage Park offering hiking trails and world-class birdwatching, with Kula Lorikeets, Silktails and Orange Doves and 100 other species of bird calling Tavenui home.
Tavenui has some resorts, and while backpacker options are limited, there are both campsites and cottages/holiday homes available for the cost-conscious traveller.
Getting to Taveuni is accessible by boat or plane. Matei Airstrip is serviced by Sun Air from Nadi and Savusavu daily and also services Labasa three times a week. Lomaiviti Princess operates four times a week from Taveuni to Suva, via Koro, and Savusavu while Beachcomber Cruises car ferry AdiSavusavu departs Taveuni for Savusavu and Suva Wednesdays, Friday and Sundays around 12 noon.
