Viti Levu

Viti Levu (pronounced [ˈβitʃi ˈleβu]; lit. ’Great Fiji’) is the largest island in the Republic of Fiji. It is the site of the nation’s capital, Suva, and home to a large majority of Fiji’s population.

Viti Levu is the largest island in the Republic of Fiji — home to 70% of the population (about 600,000 people) — and is the hub of the entire Fijian archipelago. It measures 146 kilometres (91 mi) long and 106 kilometres (66 mi) wide, and has an area of 10,389 square kilometres (4,011 sq mi). Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions account for the somewhat rugged terrain of the island, which is divided into roughly equal halves by a mountain range that runs north to south. The centre of the island is forested and includes the nation’s highest peak Mount Tomanivi (otherwise known as Mount Victoria), which rises to 1,324 metres (4,344 ft).
