Taveuni, Fiji Overview
Taveuni is located at the northern end of the Koro Sea and is entirely the product of volcanic activity.Fiji’s third largest island is separated from Vanua Levu by the Somosomo Strait. The island is between 10 and 14 kilometres wide and 42 kilometres long, is the top of a dormant, elongated shield volcano which erupted from a northeast-southwest trending rift on the ocean floor. About 150 volcanic cones dot the island, including Uluigalau, Fiji’s second highest peak at 1,241 meters, and Des Vœux Peak, next in height at 1,195 metres. There have been at least 58 volcanic eruptions since the first human settlement around 950-750 BC,all of which affected the southern two-thirds of the island. Major eruptions from 300–500 AD caused abandonment of the southern areas until about 1100 AD. The latest eruption produced a lava flow at the southern tip of the island around 1550. The island’s central ridge delineates the greatest volcanic activity surrounding volcanic vents.
