Naisese Cave is sacred to the local villagers. A cave visit includes a visit to a typical Fiji village and starts with a sevusevu, a traditional gift the visitor presents to the Turaga ni Koro, the executive head of the village. This gift is normally a pound of yaqona, a local plant and costs about FJ$ 10. Some of the older men of the village will also attend the ceremony, and the yaqona will be pounded into powder, mixed with water, and served. After this traditional welcome ceremony, entertainment and a Fijian luncheon are also part of the tour.
