Taveuni, the Garden Island of Fiji, is the most popular destination for eco-tourism. It is the third largest island in Fiji being 26 miles long and about 7 miles in width. Taveuni has a number of traditional Fijian villages along its coast. The volcanic island is covered in tropical rainforest which is rich in colour, full of sound and scattered with waterfalls. High up in the mountains in a dormant volcanic crater is a large lake where the rare Tagimaucia flower blooms from October to December.
Laucala, Matangi and Qamea islands off the north-western coast of Taveuni are well known for their informal and luxurious resorts. Qamea is the largest of these islands and has good exploring and an abundance of wildlife, particularly nesting birds. Tiny Namena island off Vanua Levu is a protected nature reserve and has a number of rare species as well as nesting boobies. There is a small luxury eco-resort on the island.
