Monuriki Island is a stunning tropical paradise that was made famous as the location for the Tom Hanks movie “Cast Away.” Before setting foot on this spectacular island or anchoring off its astoundingly white sandy beaches, you are required to visit the village of Yanuya and present your sevusevu (a small offering of kava) to the traditional landowners. If approved, you will receive a brief on the island’s biosecurity and its importance. The island is significant for a number of reasons. Firstly because one of the most endangered vegetation types: Tropical Dry Forest Vegetation occurs on the island also there is a unique population of the Fijian Crested Iguana that call the island home. Wedge tailed Shearwaters (Puffinus pacificus) are native seabirds and turtles also nest on Monuriki Island so be mindful when walking along the sensational beaches.
