Step into a vision of tropical island paradise, as you tread the soft white sands of Dravuni Island. A dreamy setting, alive with dazzling and intense colours and sea views – you'll find walls of lazily reclining palm trees backing onto beautiful fringes of sugary-white, powder-soft sand. Impossibly clear blue waters roll against the island's coastline, begging you to dip in and relish the pleasure of swimming through clear waves, observing the kaleidoscopic world of colour below the surface.
A tiny shaving of an island, Fiji's Dravuni Island is almost lost amid the aquamarine haze of the South Pacific. A tight-knit community of 150 islanders live here in a compact scattering of village huts – almost swallowed whole by the island's jungled interior. Take the gentle incline up to the top of the one small hill, from which you can admire the sum total of this tiny island of perfection. Wander the pristine beaches that fringe the island's circumference, before taking a break to refresh with sweet coconut milk, from a husk freshly cleaved open by a friendly local. You're also welcome to drop in and visit the small primary school - where the kids relish the opportunity to practice their English with visitors.
Corals create vivid, brain-like structures on the seafloor, providing nooks and crannies for the island's rich tropical fish-life to flit and dance between. Fiji's Great Astrolabe Reef is also within reach, promising a vast underworld universe of overlapping corals, and a vibrant explosion of life – see sharks, tuna and snappers are among the reef's many resident species.
