Sometimes it's possible to pursue your dream with a huge head start. Fiji's Nanukulevu Island is just such an opportunity—12.5 acres of tropical beauty on leasehold land, covered with coconut palms and surrounded by white-sand beaches and turquoise waters. It's the holiday paradise project of the current owners, who for health reasons are not able to see their dream through, and now hope that their hard work will pay off and someone else can live out the dream.

Nanukulevu is situated to the north of Fiji's third largest island, Taveuni. You'll see Laucala Island in the distance, once owned by publishing magnate Malcolm Forbes and now owned by Red Bull founder Dietrich Mateschitz. Nanukulevu's name means "big sand" in Fijian, which is fitting as the island is 100 percent coral sand. It lies at the southern end of Heemskerck Reef, named for the ship of Dutch explorer Abel Tasman (he of Tasmania fame), who came here in 1643. Access to Nanukulevu is easiest through Matei on Taveuni Island, a boat trip of about two hours—or better still, you can helicopter or float plane from Nadi on Fiji's main island.

Nanukulevu's stunning retreat complex, already well into construction, includes seven rooms with ensuites and ocean views, of which two double bedrooms and one main deluxe bedroom are complete. The rooms open to wraparound decking and an infinity pool to take in the incredible views. The main bure, made of native vesi wood, is about 90 percent complete, and with its 4,500 square feet is a wonderful entertaining area. 18,000 watts of power are generated by 72 solar panels, already in place, as are wi-fi access, a desalination plant and sewage systems.

Water sports are phenomenal here—swimming, fishing, boating and diving. The island also is a breeding ground for endangered turtles, which the owners nurture as babies until they're large enough to make their way in the ocean. It's typical of the intimate ways you'll experience true Pacific paradise at this private retreat, delightfully far from the rest of the world.
