If you want to experience rustic Fijian culture, head over to a Fijian village. There are many close to the Coral Coast and are famous for their handicrafts. The Coral Coast is also famous for watersports. Beqa Lagoon is nearby (pronounced as benga). Often called ‘the Mecca of Pacific Diving, Beqa Lagoon is known for shark sightings. Other interesting places to visit here are the Sigatoka Sand Dunes, Namosi Highlands, Sigatoka Valley, Tavuni Hill Fort and Pacific Harbour.
The Sigatoka Valley (river) Safari is a well-known tourist magnet. The Sigatoka river is perfect for idyllic boat rides. When you go up the river, the boat will cross villages like Nakabuta and Lawai and you can get down and visit them if you want. The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park is a nice place to visit too. Remains of human settlements dating back to 3000 years have been discovered here.
Pacific Harbour is called the adventure capital of Fiji. You can catch a fishing charter from here and go fishing in the ocean. Pacific Harbour’s Art Village offers an interesting peek into Fijian culture. There are also some waterfalls in the area where you can go trekking.
