This tiny island off the east coast of Viti Levu, near the capital of Suva, has an important place in Fiji's history and present culture. For starters, the oldest church in Fiji is located there. It was also home to many of the great chiefs of Fiji. You must have permission to visit Bau, either from someone living on the island or the Ministry of Fijian Affairs. Read all about it at Babasiga. Just scroll down their main page to the post titled: "Bau Island, pivotal role in Fiji's history".
I took the above photo of Bau in 2000, during a flight from Taveuni to Nausori Airport, which serves Suva. The church really stands out. Tiny island, big history.
