Hiking and National Parks in Fiji

There are over 100 species of birds in Fiji. The main island of Viti Levu has many species of birds, especially around the rainforests along the coral coast and Pacific Harbour.

Kadavu, a large rainforested island in the Southern Islands, has a number of stunning musk parrots as well as unique species of fantails and honeyeaters.

Taveuni in the Northern Islands has a diverse bird life including
parrots and lorikeets. Endangered silktails can be found in the south eastern region of neighbouring Vanua Levu.

There are several small islands that have been declared as Nature Reserves for birds, particularly nesting boobies.

These include the 45-hectare Namenalala Island off Vanua Levu in the Northern Islands,

Mabualau near Toberua Island in Lomaiviti, Bird Island off Vatulele in the Southern Islands and Hatana Island off Rotuma.

Qamea, a large volcanic island off Taveuni in the Northern Islands is another good spot for exploring and bird watching.
