Overview

Sculptured through the workings of wind, water and vegetation, the Sigatoka Sand Dunes stand out as one of Fiji's most unique wonders. In 1989, 390 acres of the Sigatoka Sand Dunes was established as Fiji's first National Park- The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park. A key contributor to its protection is the archaeological treasures buried beneath the dune sands. These artefacts have contributed to the history of man's first arrival in Fiji. Today, evidence of this past continue to be unearthed by the wind. The Park is home to a unique Dune forest which is now home to a myriad of wildlife. Some notable inhabitants of this forest include the Fijian Swallow tail Butterfly, the fruit bats, the Goshawks, the giant stick insects and cryptic Pacific Boa. The National Park is a Fijian heritage, rich in both natural and cultural attributes.

We did what was advised as the 2 hour walk in about 1 hour 40 minutes. This was not a cracking pace with nice scenery both inland and of the coast. Remember to take your own water.

My wife and I visited the national park for some exercise and a different experience. The park is amazing in the way you experience grassed hills, forest, sand dunes and beach all within the one walk!

A power run up a very steep hill led to a spectacular panoramic view that was incredible! Apparently this is where the national Fiji rugby team train..makes sense

A beautiful hike up over the dunes to a dramatic beach (no swimming, though). Don't miss it if you are in the area. Parts of the walk go along the top of the dune, and others go through a forested area. The trail is well-marked...More

This is a must on your trip!! To get in was a small fee and we hitchhiked back to the resort for about $7 a head. A lot of locals will drive around to pick up travellers for a small price, it's pretty safe

great walks - chat to the guides to obtain the history of the dunes - very interesting place. Walks vary from 45 mins to 2-3 hours - lots of options

Bula vinaka! Thank you for your review. The National Trust of Fiji manages the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park and the area you climbed up from the community side is within the National Park boundary. This side entrance is not the proper entry to the...More

Hello there, hope someone can help me. (1) Can you take a Pacific/Sunbeam bus from Nadi Bus station and alight in front of the Sigatoka National Park? I understand the express buses do not stop. How about the Stage buses? (2) For the return journey back to Nadi Bus station, do I need to go to Sigatoka bus station and then connect to a bus heading to Nadi bus station? Or can I just flag it from outside the Sigatoka National Park entrance? (3) Can u take other forms of transportation heading to Sigatoka National Park and return, e.g. the mini-vans and if yes, how do I get on board? Just flag them down with a wave of my hand?

Hi does anyone know what is the latest time we can arrive in the park in the afternoon in order to do either the 1 hour or 2 hour hike. We would prefer to do the two hour hike when its less hot say after 330pm? Can we arrive at the park at around 330 or 4pm? We are reasonably fit and experienced hikers so should have no problem completing the hike in less time than recommended. Thank you.
