The Koro Fiji contents:


Koro Island

Koro Island has an area of 109 km² and is shaped like a shark's tooth. It is a volcanic island that forms part of the Lomaiviti group of islands. As seen in the map, it's located in the middle of Fiji with the Koro Sea, which is fantastic for diving, to the right.

As of 2013, the Fijian population on the island is 4,500 living in 14 villages. Koro is one of the most fertile islands in Fiji possessing large plantations and a vibrant tropical forest. Bird watches will love Koro. Copra, Taro, and forestry are the major income earners for the island.

Koro has an airstrip on the east coast. Schools, medical stations, a post office,
and a Western Union are present with 3G due in 2014.

Getting There

Air - Northern Air has one scheduled flight per week from Suva, usually on a Saturday. Chartered flights can be arranged at your convenience.

Sea - Consort Shipping operates a roll-on roll-off ferry that goes to Koro twice a week on it's way to Savusavu from Suva.

Power is via solar power with the island also having a biofuel plant. There are no satellite TV's at any homes, which is perfect for me! It's a tropical haven of peace and paradise, with a common theme of 'love for the enviroment'.
