Kioa, Fiji

Kioa is an island in Fiji, an outlier to Vanua Levu, one of Fiji's two main islands. Situated opposite Buca Bay, Kioa is leased by settlers from Tuvalu, who came between 1947 and 1983. Kioa is one of two islands in Fiji populated by South Sea Islanders, the other being Rabi, also in the Vanua Levu Group and home to a displaced Banaban community.

Activities on Kioa include a village visit, snorkeling, scuba diving, mountain biking and bird watching. Both the snorkeling and scuba diving sites are considered among the best in all of Fiji. Divers can explore the renowned “Rainbow Reef” region of dive sites, within the Somosomo Straits. Snorkelers can visit gardens of coral at “The Farm” and “Nakawa Point.”
