The Buca Bay Road finally hits Buca Bay at Loa village, from where dirt roads branch off north and south along the coast. The road north heads through a dozen fishing villages to Nabuka at the tip of Natewa Bay, facing Rabi Island. Two kilometres south of Loa is Natuvu Landing, departure point for ferries to Taveuni. Twelve kilometres south of Natuvu you can see petroglyphs etched into stone boulders alongside the creek bed at the village of Dakuniba (ask to see them). A couple of dive resorts are hidden in the heavily indented southeastern tip of the peninsula, which has the closest access to the stunning Rainbow Reef.
