Description

Discover the real Fiji on a half-day exploration of the Coral Coast. Bargain like a local at the market in Sigatoka, learn about traditional methods for crafting Fijian pottery, and take part in a customary kava ceremony .

After you're picked up from your hotel, cruise past the island's southern beaches as you make your way along the Coral Coast. Cut inland at the Sigatoka River to reach the town of the same name, cruising through the village on your way to the bustling local market. Check out colourful heaps of tropical produce and seasonal fruit, and then continue on to the Lawai Pottery Village.

The villagers greet you with a traditional kava ceremony, pounding the kava root to make an earthy liquid and then sharing the drink as a sign of welcome. After the ceremony, watch the locals at work crafting pottery from the silty clay of the riverbed.
