The hilly, tropical countryside of East Viti Levu is the least-visited part of the big island. Here you’ll find some of the prettiest roadside landscapes in Fiji, particularly around Viti Levu Bay along the northeast coast. South of the bay, from the village of Barotu, the Kings Road cuts 20km inland through deep tropical rainforest alongside the Wainibuka River. An alternative track from Barotu heads over the high Nakorotubu Range to the undulating hills and bays of the remote Tailevu Coast. The two roads meet again at Korovou town, from where the route descends into the fertile flat farming land of the mighty Rewa River, eventually rejoining the urban world at Nausori, just north of Suva.
