Wailagilala Island, Fiji
Wailagilala is an uninhabited island located in the far north of Fiji’s Lau islands. It lies to the eastern sea border of the Fiji archipelago in the South Pacific, and is the gateway to Fiji for ships coming or going to Samoa through the Nanuku Passage.
The island is surrounded by a spectacular lagoon and coral reefs. Its crystal-clear waters are attributed to its remote location and lack of terrestrial water run-off. The island has an abandoned cast iron lighthouse, 95 feet long, built about 1909, and believed to have been built in England.
The island was leased in early 2007 and will be developed as a luxury private retreat.
