Full description
Experience authentic Fiji culture on the Coral Coast on a half-day tour from either Nadi or Denarau. Following pick-up from your hotel, cruise past the island's southern beaches as you make your way along the coast. Cut inland at the Sigatoka River to reach the town of the same name.

Then, journey to the bustling market as you make you way through the village. Check out the colorful mounds of tropical produce and seasonal fruits, and bargain like a local. Continue to the Lawai Pottery Village, where you will be greeted with a traditional kava ceremony. Watch the villagers pound the kava root to make an earthy liquid that they then share as a sign of welcome.

After the ceremony, watch the locals at work crafting pottery from the silt clay of the riverbed. Learn how local plants like eucalyptus resin are used to glaze and decorate these traditional wares. Before you head back to your hotel, check out Sigatoka's massive Hare Krishna temple, perched on a hilltop overlooking the river below.
