Beach, Kadavu, Fiji

Dravuni is all about the beach, all about being far from the works of man. A chance to get that Robert Louis Stevenson/Paul Gauguin feeling of having a corner of the tropical world that’s all yours. Dravuni is a small island, and it’s not that hard to walk all the way around it on soft Fijian sand. Grab some shade (not under a coconut tree—that can be dangerous) and stare at the ocean until you feel your heartbeat slow to match the rhythm of the waves.
