    Island Paradise
    Idyllic beaches. Easy to navigate walking treks. Drop dead stunning vistas and the most welcoming smiles in the South Pacific, which is hard because everyone is so incredibly welcoming, makes Fiji's Dravuni Island a gorgeous place to visit. I did as many do on their one cruise ship day trip: pop into the local primary school and Kindy to donate essential school supplies. Only being a children's author, my gift to the beautiful kids there were a couple of my most popular picture books. Wonderful to witness their smiling gratitude. Oh and swimming in the pristine waters was an extra treat. The snorkelling was fare, we brought our own gear along. Perhaps a simple highlight was supping on freshly caught, filleted and BBQ'd tuna with cassava and fresh pineapple for lunch. Omg, out of this world delicious 😋!

    Paradise Regained
    Amazing island with a beautiful beach, lots of shells, and a trail. We visited the island on a cruise. Wish we could have stayed longer. The natives were friendly and offered myriad products for sale. No motorized vehicles. The island is so small that many of our group chose to walk around it! It was clearly the best stop on our cruise. There is some shady spots on the beach. Snorkeling can be done right from the beach. Be sure to take suntan lotion and a bathing suit! Locals did provide a ride around the island by boat to get a different perspective. This is a peaceful and tranquil place. No hotels or stores. Locals do provide drinks and home cooked meals.

    Tourist Island
    Our cruise ship anchored offshore. Lots of crafts for sale. Some massage booths...cheap but you get what you pay for. Some fruit for sale. Can visit the school. Students there. Cruise people had left gifts for the school. Found out that every time a cruise ship anchors and people come ashore The Cruise company pays approximately 7,000 dollars to the island committee so the island is doing very well although you really can't see where the money goes as there are a lot of run down buildings. Nice beach and swimming looked fun.

    During cruise on Fiji Island we stop on this amazing island for one day. Early morning was very cloudy but around 12 the sun come out and the day completely changed. The sea was unbelievable clear and stunning. Beautiful walking around on island enjoying fresh fruit on the beach with coconut banana and papaya.Very delicious. We went on top of mountain and the view was amazingly. This island is completely out from other world and stress.Wish to stay here for much more time for isolate myself from the real life.

    A cruise stop.
    This was part of our South Pacific itinerary and well worth the stop. This small (2 miles long) island with a population of around 135 to 150 inhabitants welcomes approximately 2000 cruise passengers to their home several times a month. Most visitors take advantage of the beaches and snorkeling there. There is a school there that many visitors bring supplies to which is well appreciated. While there you can do boat rides around the island, shop for crafts or buy refreshments. There are several trails around the island, if you head to the right, you can hike to the highest point of the island. We chose the less traveled path (to the left) and for most of it, it felt like we were the only people on the island.....we came across a unique cemetery, a wild pig and a deserted beach.

Loved Dravuni! Took heaps of items for the school & the villagers, $10 boat ride around the island, $20 massage, swam, snorkeled, climbed the hill & found a beach all to ourselves. Lovely relaxing day!

This place is paradise we swam snorkelled and walked on the island The walks take you through lush tropical forest and past village gardens of bananas,cassava and sweet potato. The w
View from the top of the hill is worth the walk Coconuts fringe the white Sandy beaches. The water is warm and easy snorkelling for beginners over a pretty coral reef
The residents are friendly and helpful I’m so glad they are happy to share their island with visitors.
There are no shops
