Fiji’s first official national park, protected by law, is the fascinating Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park on the southwest coast of Viti Levu. The fragile sand-dune ecosystem, scattered with ancient bones and pottery, has an informative visitor centre and two managed trails for exploring.

Otherwise, the lush Bouma National Heritage Park encompasses almost half of Taveuni; and Koroyanitu National Heritage Park sits inland from Lautoka on Viti Levu. Both offer managed walking trails to waterfalls, village interaction and community-run accommodation.

Other projects managed by the National Trust of Fiji (nationaltrust.org.fj) include Momi Guns, south of Nadi; Levuka Town on Ovalau; Yadua Taba Island; and Waisali Reserve in Vanua Levu.
