Ovalau is the largest island in the Lomaiviti Group. At the centre of the island is an extinct volcano and several mountains which offer nice hiking. There's also the captivating old colonial centre of Levuka, which is the only place in the Lomaiviti Group with decent banks, shops and services.
The Bureta Airstrip and Buresala Landing (for ferries) are on the western side of Ovalau, while Levuka is on the eastern coast. A gravel road winds around the perimeter of the island and another follows the Bureta River inland to Lovoni village.
