Waitabu Marine Park has just added a new feature of camping in the village. This is great and they have their own tents and sleeping inflatable mattresses. The campground is directly on the beach and you go to sleep with the sound of the waves in your ears. An absolutely great experience to camp on the beach and interact with the village, but still have your own place to stay in a tent.

We loved our visit to Waitabu Marine Park! Eta (Marine Park director?) and Larry (our snorkeling guide) were SO kind and knowledgeable. And the marine park itself was out of this world! We saw a GIANT clam (no joke - it was something like 20" long) and the most beautiful and brightly colored lobster ever. It was definitely one of our top snorkeling excursions while on Taveuni, and I'd say it's a must visit while on the Garden Island!

Very well organised for a Fijian village. Most houses have solar panels and battery storage, indoor shower and flushing toilet! Not like the other villages I've stayed where I had to stagger out in the dark to look for the long drop! Great food and friendly people. Adjacent marine reserve is awesome.

Waitabu camp-grounds is an absolute delight. From the moment I stepped into the visitor center, I knew there was nothing to be missed from home. During my week long stay at the campsite, I had the opportunity to have a taste of real Fijian cuisine from Waci-poki made out of Taro leaves, pumpkin leaves in coconut milk (was a favorite) to fresh lobster made in a special Waitabu sauce. Of course all these dishes were accompanied by the usual fresh root crops either taro, cassava or wild yams. There are self-cooking facilities in the kitchen but what better way to experience Fijian food then to taste some made by them in their special ways. The tents were spacious and comfortable and it is an experience not be missed to wake up to see the sun rising from the comfort of my air-bed and inside the tent!. Truly a magical experience. Swimming in and amongst the vast array of tropical marine life was truly a blessing. The rich color of branching and boulder corals in the Marine Park reflected well with the rich marine life in the area. Snorkel guides were polite and definitely knew their stuff. All in all it was truly a superb week in Waitabu. I will definitely be going back.

Oh it was just awesome....hearing the sound of the waves as you sleep in the night, seeing the beautiful stars in the sky and being greated by the beautiful view of the early morning sunrise. I would not ask for anything more... Waitabu is the place to be if you are looking for a village experience. You can get a chance to meet the locals with their friendly smiles, drink kava and learn a few fijian dance twists from the village entertainers. Above all you can swim in one Fiji's known marine park. It's just one of a kind experience to go on which definatly you will enjoy.

I-d-é-a-l : Le séjour au petit village de Waitabu a été merveilleux. La localisation est parfaite pour profiter dans la même journée d'un peu de découverte d'un parc marin, d'une visite de chutes d'eau magnifiques (Tavoro falls) et d'un petit trajet en bus qui vaut le détour. L'ambiance est très paisible sans que l'on se sente seul, car les gens du village sont adorables et très serviables quand cela s'avère nécessaire. Laissez-vous tenter comme nous par ce petit coin de Paradis loin des gros hôtels où toute la petite famille peut s'y retrouver. Sans hésitation, un passage obligé pour les amoureux des îles paradisiaques et des coins sauvages. Ames d'aventuriers vous ne serez pas non plus déçues !

The people of Waitabu really make this experience perfect - true Fijian hospitality at its best. The facilities include showers, flushing toilets and a kitchen, or you can choose to have delicious home cooked local foods. These, coupled with the campground being situated right on the beautiful sandy beach make for a wonderful holiday . The tour of the Marine Park is fabulous, and other adventures, such as rain forest hike and stunning waterfalls are just a short walk away. We had so much fun there and were made to feel so welcome, will definitely be going back! Highly recommended.
