Sights to See: Firewalkers, Coral Coast, Fiji

Once the firewalking ritual in which Fijians walk on white-hot stones was performed only on special occasions in Navakaisese Village on Beqa Island. Nowadays, the Fijians perform the ritual at hotels on Viti Levu and on the island of Beqa, where according to legend they were first given this gift. Firewalkers are men only; they are not permitted to have sex or to eat any coconut product for two weeks prior to a performance.  Learn more.
