The lovely old Catholic mission at Wairiki. The mission is set into the hillside and
overlooks the site where Taveuni warriors turned back thousands of Tongans in a
battle which was fought in canoes just off the beach. This battle was of historical
significance as it was the first place in where the Tongans were defeated. The

Guests are welcome to attend Mass on Sunday mornings. Sunday Mass is at 07.00am, 09.00am and 11.00am. The singing is magnificent!
Bouma Falls is one of the most beautiful spots on Taveuni. Located in Tavoro National Park, it is a perfect half or full day trip. The Bouma Falls are actually three waterfalls; the first is an easy ten minute walk from the main road. The area around the first waterfall has picnic tables, benches and a changing room. The waterfall is approximately 60 feet in height and falls into a large pool where one can go swimming. About 100 feet high and perhaps more dramatic a second waterfall takes about forty minutes to reach along a trail which has steps, handrails and benches for rest stops. You cross a stream about fifteen feet wide (you can pull along the heavy rope that runs over the stream). The stream is shallow, but recent heavy rains can make the crossing harder. The walk to the third and final waterfall takes about thirty minutes more along a dirt trail which can get muddy. This waterfall is only about 25 feet high but the beauty is in the remoteness of the area and the perfect stillness – a wonderful place to meditate! Price for this trip depends on the length of the stay and number of participants.
This trip can be done in combination with the Bouma Falls trip or on its own. Past Bouma Falls you travel to Lavena, one of the most picturesque villages on the island. Lavena also has one of the most beautiful beaches of Taveuni, this is the location of the ‘Return to Blue Lagoon’. White sand and crystal clear water make this an ideal spot for swimming, snorkeling and picnicking. A good track takes you from Lavena Village along the coast.
