Silversea Luxury Cruises A Toyota Island

Shaped like a horseshoe, Toyota is part of the Lau archipelago of Fiji in the Moala subgroup. The island is surrounded by a high coral reef on most sides, with passages that lead into a beautiful, deep bay. Because the high reefs make Toyota more difficult to access, the island boasts particularly unspoiled, pristine white beaches, even for this region. At a modest 28 square km, the island is inhabited, with its own post office and five primary schools. View more

While the soil on Toyota is not as fertile as its larger neighboring island, the land supports small-scale subsistence farming, though this is threatened by the recent impacts of climate change that have brought erosion-causing sea swells. Visitors to this rare gem will see diverse wildlife underwater, as well as on land, where many species of birds live. Legend has it that those entering Toyota through the sacred passage of Daveta Tabu are expected to observe the tradition of sitting cross-legged and remaining silent, in tribute to a royal burial at sea that happened centuries ago.
