Matapa Chasm

You’ll find the entrance to this chasm off from the main road at the foot of Hikutavake Hill, right beside the start of the trek to Talava Arches. As you reach the end of the walkway, you’re greeted by expansive cliff faces and a long lagoon of purples and blues. This place is not only beautiful and serene, but also holds historical importance, once a reserved bathing pool to the traditional kings. The large cliff formations provide a sheltered snorkelling sanctuary, the waters incredibly still as waves are interrupted at the other end by large rocks. There is even a spot on one of the cliffs where you can climb up to the top, the water plenty deep enough for you to jump right in!
