Navala Village is an authentic traditional village in the Ba Highlands of the largest island of the Republic of Fiji, Viti Levu. Known most of the time as the last traditional Fijian village on the island nation, there are approximately 220 houses which are named as bures, and they are traditionally built from bamboo and grass.
Navala is nestled in rugged, grassy mountains which means that the people’s lifestyle is traditional in fashion with no electricity and telephone systems, depending on subsistence farming, fishing and hunting.
There are actually three settlements which are making up the entire village, and as every bures is same in size, it means that people living in Navala are all equal, making it a quite unique and special place to be seen.
Once there, there are great panoramic views of the Yasawa Island group, nonetheless, the village itself is a photographer’s delight and for a small entrance fee, one can wander around the village and enjoy in the amazing nature that surrounds the village, together with the experience of how the locals are living with the nature. A true and unique Fijian adventure!
