Venture inward to explore well-traveled trails through the hills and untamed beaches, where crystal clear waters give way to coral reefs.

  • Tropical paradise as you would expect it to be. Worth a walk up the peak for the stunning views but beware it is fairly steep and hot work. Take water.
  • We went there in November 2017 on the Golden Princess. This island is a perfect piece of paradise. The water is the most beautiful shade of blue and the white sands are so clean. The people are so beautiful and the children coming out of school all in uniform were a treat to see. Their homes are humble but clean. Plenty of shady trees and palms. It was the most natural and best place on the whole trip.
  • Visited Dravuni Island in November 2017. The locals are very friendly. The scenery is picture perfect. There is a walking track to the highest point of the island. Enjoyed the experience. Recommend a visit to this island Paradise.
  • Relax, relax and more relaxation. Lovely people, beautiful beaches, warm clear waters. Paradise.
  • I visited by cruise ship in Jan of 2017, and I agree with Joel but would add more about the beautiful beach. To many visitors the beach is the most important part of the Dravuni experience. It is about 20 meters of fine sand that separates the water from a lovely green jungle (palm trees, etc.), and it seems to stretch a mile or so south from the tender port. Up until about 11 AM we were in the shade because of the close by trees. The clear water is a warm shallow bay that is very much alive with sea grass and corals. There are rentals for snorkeling gear at US $10 for the day. It is a little difficult to snorkel due to the shallow water, and we found ourselves in only 30 cm. of water at some places making it difficult to keep from damaging the coral. Even 200 meters out one could stand up in waist deep water. Most of the fish that we saw were quite small, brightly colored tropical fish. This was one of the top experiences of our 27 day cruise.

Where to stay in Suva

By and large, accommodations in Suva cluster in the vicinity of its main strip, Victoria Parade. Here you have a solid choice of comfortable hotels, mostly in the mid-to-high range, with the most lavish options located on the Parade itself and backing onto the waterfront. For slightly more affordable prices, look along Robertson Road, a ten-minute walk north of Victoria Parade.
