Within the garden island of the lush Taveuni holidays destination, Bouma National Park has a network of bush trails going to volcanic peaks and jagged Pacific Ocean cliffs. Inside the thirty-seven thousand acres of Bouma National Park, over one hundred bird species can be found. Although Taveuni is the third largest island in Fiji, the entire population is only about two thousand. There are no tour buses on the island, just an unspoiled paradise full of chirping birds and slushing waterfalls.
There is scheduled ferry service from Suva, which is a 19 hour overnight voyage to Waiyevu in Taveuni. Upon arrival at Waiyevu, visitors can hire a private or shared taxi or take a local bus to Bouma National Park. Sun Air and Air Fiji provide inter-island air service from Suva and Nadi International Airport to Matei Airport in Taveuni Island, which is about a thirty minute drive from Bouma National Park.
From the visitor center at the village of Bouma, guided tours through the trails and raft rides are available. Guided tours through the rainforest take about three hours, with a good amount of climbing. For those wishing to set out on their own, the two maintained hiking trails are Bouma Falls Trail, which begins on the northest coast of Taveuni and passes the Tavoro Falls where visitors can relax and swim. Starting at the village of Lavena is the Lavena Coast Walk, stretching about three miles along the edge of the forest, passing cove beaches that can also be explored by kayak. The reefs surrounding Taveuni Island are a favorite diving destination with cheap Suva accommodation available just a boat ride away.
