There are a couple of worthwhile hikes around Levuka, including The Peak trail, an arduous two-hour hike through forest culminating in a panorama of the eastern coastline from the large hill which rears up behind Levuka. Hikes are available with the affable Nox, who is best contacted through Levuka Homestay (344 0777; The Peak F$25; plantation walk including information on local medicine and a swim in a natural pool F$20).
The Levuka Community Centre (Mon–Fri 8am–1pm & 2–4.30pm, Sat 8am–1pm; 344 0356) organizes ninety-minute walking tours (from F$10) on demand. A more impromptu walking tour is offered by Nox (book via Levuka Homestay on t 344 0777; from F$10), who will guide you round the less-explored parts of town.
The nearest diving operators are Leleuvia Island Resort and Naigani Island Resort. Otherwise, there’s excellent snorkelling off Caqalai Island, which can be visited as a day-trip from your resort.
