  • Fantastic historic location with beautiful views. Easy location to venture too and suits all ages. The guides were brilliant and really took the time to answer all our questions (even the kids random ones).
  • If you are interested in Fijian history and want to see how things were in the 1800s this is one of Fiji's more accessible fort sites. From the top of the site there are excellent views of the Sigatoka River valley. The visitor centre has improved greatly and local staff will give you a guided tour and explain the history of the site especially where they killed and ate their enemies.
