The islands of Fulaga

The island of Fulaga, situated in the Southern Lau Group, Fiji, is a crater shaped limestone island surrounded by fringing reef and within the lagoon it surrounds, over 300 smaller islands and rock formations lie within the crystal clear lagoon, making up one of the most isolated places in Fiji. But it’s also one of the most stunning.

There are three villages on the island with about 400 people in total living on Fulaga. The island is most well known for it’s traditional carvings done by the villagers who are highly skilled in the making of canoes, bowls, carvings and mats. The products produced are often taken back to the main island and sold in shops and markets to tourists.
