Travel guide to Kioa Island

Canoe on beach
Kioa Island was purchased for £3015 in 1947 by the people of Vaitupu in Tuvalu (formerly the Ellice Islands). It is a glimpse of Polynesian life in Fiji.
Some concerns over overcrowding and poor soils contributed to the decision to purchase Kioa with the money earned by the people of Vaitupu who worked for the Americans during World War II. The land was considered fertile with the possibility of growing cocoa, coconuts and other crops. Salia is the only village on the island and has several hundred inhabitants. The island is privately owned and therefore you cannot turn up without an invitation. There is no accomodation and no facilities for tourists. This does not make it impossible to visit!
