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.

The land-based natural wonder of the Coral Coast

A great natural area to get some exercise; see some wildlife; get sand in your hair and between your toes; and take some fantastic photos.

We did the quick 30 min hike since we didn't have much time. It's an ok place to visit but only if you have a lot of time. Otherwise, not too special. And they closed early (4:30 - 5 pm).

We arrived just after 8:30 before it got too hot and were welcomed by a very knowledgable attendant. We were given a map and key advice before being pointed along the route. We chose the shorter, one hour route as we only had flip flops on. It's a stunning walk with some lovely views, very peaceful too. The kids were... More

We took the 1 hour walk but would've done the 2-hour loop with more time. Lots to see, great views. Make sure you have appropriate footwear as the sand can be quite deep and gets everywhere!

My friends and I enjoyed the walk but considering it is sold as sand dunes - well there was not much sand. Well certainly on the short 1 hour walk is was mainly grass lands. But still pleasant and worth visiting if you are in the area.

As with any national park walk, especially one involving sand dunes, you need to be prepared - bring water and a hat! You'll also need to be reasonably fit- able to walk/climb up steep slopes, on uneven ground. There are some small shelters along the way perfect for enjoying some snacks/water, and the wooden teepees at the end were a... More

It is well worth the $10 entry and walk through the huge sand dunes. It was an amazing experience and very beautiful!

Our guide told us about the dunes and how they are creeping into some of the small villages. But unless you are interested in this, these huge dunes are just that.

After signing in and paying $10 per person (very reasonable and obviously helps maintain the park) at the I centre we headed off up some steep wooden steps, but they were very manageable, with a handrail, so that even the older persons in our party had no problem. We were two sets of grandparents, two parents and their 2 girls,... More
