Beyond the Beach by the Pier

The white sanded beach on the West Side of the island, is a top hidden attraction not to be missed. A truly secluded beach on a remote island that is a perfect experience of paradise on Earth.

Once passed the treeline that borders the beach, you will find yourself in a clearance of the dense vegetation that covers Dravuni. This is a kind of welcoming-arrival-area to the Island, including a couple of stalls with unusual local crafts and souvenirs.

Most of the homes of the residents are close by in two clusters known as old and new villages and the paths to a couple of secluded beaches.

To the right, you will find a large thatched covered area where locals hang out and the track to two main attractions - the Hilltop and a large, secluded white-sandy-beach.

Walk to the Hilltop

The walk to the Hilltop is a pleasure to stroll and a must do. Most of the path is flat, bordered by lush tropical vegetation, with openings to secluded beaches ideal for snorkeling. A leisurely walk to the base of the hill takes around 10 minutes.

Although most locals live on the northern side of the island, you will pass by a few landmarks worth a detour. The primary school is a surprising site and the multi-religious temple (for lack of a better word) is worth a pick inside with its Christian cross, Namaste, and Menora.

As the cruise traveler approaches the base of the hill that is the highest point on the island, you will see another path on the left. This track will take you to a large and secluded beach that is the other must-see in Dravuni.

Levu Island in the Distance

Unless you don't feel fit enough for the smooth climb to the Hilltop, the Editor strongly encourages cruisers to leave the beach for a final visit, with a refreshing dip or just enjoying the sea breeze with a thrilling landscape.
