12. Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park, Viti Levu
Nearly 60 kilometers south of Nadi, Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park was the country’s foremost national park, created to defend this brittle ecosystem of maritime dunes close to the mouth of the Sigatoka River. Constructed over thousands of years, the dunes are 20 to 60 meters high. One can enjoy the sensational sights of the surf from the highest peaks. To enjoy the park, you can pick up from two self-guided walks: a one-hour walk through a jungle to the coast or a two-hour stroll along the ridgeline. Key attractions include traveling the archaeological sites to watch old Lapita artifacts, consisting more than two-thousand-year-old pottery, rock tools, and one of the largest graveyard sites in the Pacific. Bird watching is also popular, and the little tourist center exhibits some fascinating artifacts found at the site as well as facts about its history and ecology.
