What’s One Place You’d Take Every Visitor To In Fiji And Why?
Sigatoka Sand Dunes, just love this place with beautiful sunrise/sunset views and scenery from the top of the dune is just amazing.

I can spend hours in place just watching the Sigatoka River mouth, ocean and green vegetation.

Best recommended time to trek this place is during cooler hours of the day either early in the morning or late afternoon as sand gets really hot during hot sunny days.

What’s Your Secret Backyard Favourite Spot?
My secret backyard spot is anywhere I can see the sunset, get my feet in the sand and water.

At the moment my favourite spot is the Wicked Walu Restaurant at Warwick Fiji.

I take a walk almost every day after work to this place to watch the sunset and walk bare feet in the sand and water.

 

What’s Your Favourite Place In Fiji For A Pie/Coffee?
I love Bulaccino Café in Namaka, Nadi.

They have this amazing place at the back of the main café where I like to sit with family and friends to enjoy my coffee.

 

What’s one Fiji spot on the top of your bucket list?
Taveuni.

To visit the Lake Tagimoucia
