Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park

Fiji Sand Dunes

The sand dunes are a sight to see. he Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park is Fiji’s first National Park and was established in 1987 to protect a unqiue natural and cutural heritage site.The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park is managed by the National Trust of Fiji.
The Park is open daily from 8:00am to 5:00pm. Its Visitor Information Centre is manned by local rangers, who provide an informative introduction to the Park’s status and how to traverse its walking tracks.

Visitors can take the 1 hour walk or the 2 hour walk to explore this unique ecosytem or seek a guided tour from the local rangers onsite.
Both walks provide visitors an opportunity to experience first hand the key attributes that make the Sigatoka Sand Dunes, a well known national heritage. We recommend the 2 hr walk for a full on ‘Dunal experience’. Two popular Park activities include a visit to the old archaeological sites to see ancient lapita artefacts and bird watcing in the Park’s pockets of Native Dry Forests. The Park also runs a Going Native program which sees visitors helping local rangers and local community volunteers replant native trees.

Park access is 4.5km southwest of Sigatoka on the Queens Road. Stick to the designated trails and allow one or two hours for the short or long self-guided walking tours respectively. And if by chance you do come across a thighbone jutting from the sand, know that you’ll be cursed forever if you attempt to remove it.

Most buses (excluding express services) travelling between Nadi and Sigatoka can drop you right outside the visitors centre on the main highway. A taxi from Sigatoka town costs $6.
