Fiji's Bouma National Park

Had my honeymoon on Taveuni in 1999. My wife and I loved it, all of it: the scuba diving, the people, the Garden Island feel, the short golf course, the hiking, everything, but most of all, we will never forget our hike around Bouma National Park, and the swim into the lower Tavoro falls.
It was very difficult to get close to the falling water that day, even for a strong triathlete, because the outflow was very difficult to break through.
The Lavena coast will forever be our most special place.
