Found in Taveuni's lush Bouma National Heritage Park, the Tavoro Waterfalls (or Bouma Falls) are some of the most striking features in the country—but you'll have to work to reach them. While the first waterfall is an easy walk from the Bouma visitors center, you have to climb hills and cross rivers for 30 minutes to reach the second waterfall, and climb even steeper (and more slippery) hills for another 20 minutes to reach the third waterfall (pictured).
