Suwarrow Island is a low lying coral atoll. It is very isolated, being about 60 miles northwest of Rarotonga. When first visited by Europeans, it was uninhabited, but it is believed that Polynesians periodically visited the islands pre-European discovery. The Russian ship Suvorov reportedly followed clouds of birds to the atoll in 1814. The captain named the island for his ship, which, in turn, had been named after the Russian General Alexander Vasilievich Suvorov. Suwarrow was declared a National Heritage Park in 1978 to protect is diverse wildlife. View more
