    Great experience not to be missed!
    Absolutely worth the 30 minute walk. Really stunning scenery. Our tour guide Sadie was really helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend to do this when visiting the Coral Coast.

    Best waterfall experience
    This was our favourite trip we did and so close to our hotel (the Warwick hotel). We just got the hotel to book a taxi (not a tour) and we were greeted on arrival and had a kava ceremony. The hall had lots of great handicrafts to buy. My mum is 70 so a lady escorted mum up to the waterfall which was a lovely walk though although a little slippery and we did 7 river crossings each way so wear waterproof shoes and shorts or dress. You can get a horse ride up but we wanted to walk. The waterfall was lovely and beautiful to swim in. We would highly recommend going in the morning and you can be back by lunch time. We found it rained most afternoons in June.

    Beautiful Biausevu Watefall
    We loved the Biausevu Waterfall. We went with Maggie’s Tours who were fantastic. We were welcomed into the village with a cava ceremony by the people of the Biausevu Village. We had a lovely guide named Lorraine who took us to the waterfall. It was relaxed 40 minute walk to the waterfall. It was so worth the walk. The walk to the the waterfall and the waterfall was beautiful. We enjoyed a refreshing swim in the waterfall. The Biausevu waterfall was well worth the visit

    Biausevu Waterfall
    Went the falls and loved it! A short 30 minute walk there and then a nice refreshing dip. Well worth the visit. Fairly flat and easy terrain. You also have a choice of riding a horse to the falls.

    Drive yourself and horseride to the waterfall!
    We drove to the waterfall in our rental car. It takes 2 hours from Denarau but the time went quickly. You follow Google maps and you turn off the main road just at the village which takes you to the waterfall along a dirt /gravel windy road. You reach the community hall where the locals are waiting to take you to the waterfall. You can either walk (by yourself) or opt for a horse for $50FJD. It is well worth the horse ride as you don't have to go through the 7 creek crossings! Before you leave they will do a welcome ceremony in the hall and you MUST drink the Kava 🤮! The local home have all their wares out for you to buy. Whilst I like to support the locals , everything was more expensive than at port Denarau. There is a $25FJD entry fee also to the waterfall. You need cash for all these things. At the waterfall the guides ( who are carrying your bag whilst you ride the horse) will wait for you whilst you swim. It is incredible refreshing! They will also help you climb the rock wall and jump in if you are brave enough. Against my better judgement I let my 17 yo daughter do it but she survived unscathed! There is a tiny change room where you can get rid of your wet swimmers and ride back in comfort. A very worthwhile trip! On the way back we stopped at the Outrigger hotel 35 mins down the road. They have restaurants open all day so you sit looking at the beach and having a late lunch !

    Awesome local experience!
    Wonderful experience! Nice shady activity on a sunny day. Our local guide from the village was very knowledgeable and all our kids thought she was amazing when she demonstrated how to jump from the rocks around the fall. The water was cool and refreshing. Highly recommended!!

    Fun Waterfall Hike
    Nice easy hike to waterfall. Cross the stream about 9 times, so need good water shoes with secure backs ( Keens, etc.). Not flip flops. Fun swim in the pool at the base of the waterfall. Some were climbing the cliff at the base of the falls and jumping in, but I wouldn’t recommend that as the water is not deep. A local guide is required, so make arrangements in advance.

    Lovely waterfall with a nice walk in.
    We self drive to the community hall in the village. Then participates in the welcome ceremony. Then the 9 year old got on a horse and the adults walked up to the waterfall. It took about 40 minutes to walk at a leisurely pace. Crossing the river multiple times. It was very refreshing. Our guide Alfred showed us all the different plants and their uses. And lots of information about the village and the area. The waterfall was beautiful and the swimming was good. It’s best to wear reef/beach shoes rather than thongs.

We opted to go with horses as it was raining and offered. We loved every minute of this tour and the horses were very chill. Great experience and bring cash to purchase souvenirs from the locals upon entry.

My wife and I were staying in the Maui Bay area. We booked a local driver to take us up to the village. This was on a Sunday, so they did not have the normal Kava ceremony. We were greeted by a woman villager and her children. After a brief introduction, and an opportunity to use the restroom, we were assigned a 14-year-old boy named John who was the son of the woman who gave us the introduction.

The hike up to the waterfall was about 1.5 miles, and was a reasonably easy trip for two people 55. Once we got to the waterfall, there was a bathroom and changing rooms and some picnic tables. We did get into the water. Our guide John took pictures of us. We stayed at the waterfall for about 45 minutes and no one else was there. It was a great experience. On the way back, the trip was much quicker. We met John's father, older brother and sister on the way back who were leading other tours.The Fijian people are very friendly and we highly recommend that you go and do the visit. I would recommend not doing any tours, but hiring a local local driver..

The view of the waterfall is so spectacular. It’s worth the drive in, we had Muddy our driver take us in, we had Kava at the village and began walking into the forest to the waterfall. If you’re willing to get your wet to see the waterfall the walking track to it is an adventure itself! You can swim in waterfall and have lunch. Highly recommend for adventurous people!

Drove ourselves up to the village, the road is t great but we got our 7 seater up it fine. No signage, just turn at the Airport (yeah) go on up to the village. Park in front of the community hall.
You’ll go inside, be offered Kava then told of the $25 pp fee and offered the local handicrafts, which like the same stuff offered everywhere so don’t think they’re made locally.
We then had two guides, young villagers who led us up and told us about the various bits along the way. You don’t really need a guide but it’s another way to bring some money into the village as you’re expected to tip them.
The walk is beautiful, a narrow cement path most of the way and you’ll need to wade through the creek several times. Once you get to the end, you can swim under the falls and then head back again.
One note to the village - clean up you rubbish. Plastic bottles and junk everywhere. Detracts from the overall beauty of the place.
