A great way to explore the coastal scenery around Lavena is on a guided kayak tour (4hr; F$50, includes lunch), which you can arrange at Lavena Lodge. Experienced guides from the village will accompany you on a one-hour paddle south from Lavena before trekking inland to the falls for lunch. The guides will then tow your kayak back to the village, allowing you to return along the Lavena Coastal Walk. Keen kayakers can hire a guide for the day and paddle further down the coast where the cliffs become steeper and several waterfalls tumble directly into the sea – though note that it’s a gruelling six-hour trip across open sea to view this spectacle and conditions can be rough.
