Fiji is an archipelago of around 300 islands in the South Pacific. The main island where tourism has been well developed is Viti Levu and around 75% of all Fijians live around the coast on this island. Vanua Levu is the second largest island in Fiji but is very different to Viti Levu in that it has been much less developed. The Opwall projects are on the Natewa Peninsula at the south-eastern end of the island and access is along dirt track roads.
