Spanning around 650 hectares, the dune system has formed over millennia due to hinterland erosion and the formation of coastal sand dunes. What’s even more impressive is the height of some of these dunes – between 20 to 50 metres in height and up to one kilometer wide. It remains one of Fiji’s most iconic treasures and its educational and recreational value continues to attract thousands of visitors a year. The walk through park includes stunning panoramic views, beach walk and a native forest walk where you meet up with “tree-huggers”.
