International Date Line
Journey through 3 days in the matter of minutes! The International Date Line runs through Taveuni and is just a 10 minute walk to the right of Garden Island Resort. Taveuni is one of the very few land masses in the world that the meridian crosses and you are just a few minutes away – don’t miss it!

Volleyball / Badminton (adjacent to the Dive Centre)
Join the staff and other guests around 4pm for some fun or get a game going yourself.

Walking & Hiking near the Resort
Take off along the coastal road or go up into the hillsides behind the resort where the views across the Somosomo Straits are breathtaking. See the local village market gardens, small settlements, streams, and coconut groves, and enjoy the friendliness of the local people of Taveuni.

Waitavala Waterslide
Just a 25 minute walk from the resort uphill to Waitavala brings you to a natural waterslide. Join the local kids after school in this picturesque setting. Dependent on weather and tidal conditions.


These people and this place will be forever engrained in my memory.
