Tasting Dravuni Island
Dravuni Island doesn’t really have restaurants. With a ship in, villagers will sell grilled fish, probably caught early that morning. Sometimes it'll be offered with the more traditional preparation: cooked in coconut milk or lime juice. (Fijians have a talent for leaving perfect, clean fish skeletons behind after a meal; most travelers aren’t that tidy.) You might find some kava (locally, yaqona) for sale. For all intents and purposes, it’s a sleeping pill masquerading as a drink that tastes like mud. Try at your own risk, but absolutely no more than two shells for the inexperienced.
