A very different Fji experience compared to the hotel chains at Denarau Island: we rented a car and drove up the Coral Coast and stayed at the de Vos villas for 6 nights - even though it was in the middle of the Australian winter school holidays and all the resorts were full, the stunning beach here was magically empty....
