At first glance North Viti Levu, with its rolling sunburnt hills and succession of dusty inland towns, might appear rather dreary. But delve a little deeper and you’ll discover some charming unexpected sites. The raw Ba hinterland boasts Fiji’s most spectacular traditional village, Navala, while further east and also inland is Fiji’s highest mountain, Tomanivi, which can be conquered on a pleasant but arduous half-day hike. Off the undulating coast of Rakiraki, the tranquil island of Nananu-i-Ra has fabulous diving and is a popular retreat with budget travellers. Further east, the most scenic roadside views in Fiji are to be found around Viti Levu Bay, with the high peaks of the Nakauvadra Range rising from the flat sugarcane fields.
