About Batiki Island blbtki
Thirty miles off the Eastern coast of Viti Levu (Fiji’s largest island) lies our home—the island of Batiki.
Batiki is nestled in the centre of the Lomaiviti Archipelago in The Koro Sea, and is surrounded by its island neighbours: Ovalau, Wakaya, Gau, Koro, Nairai and many others!
Batiki’s four villages—Mua, Yavu, Manuku, and Naigani—are home to the 300 islanders who make up Bula Batiki and who make Bula Batiki coconut oil.
Located in the southwestern corner of Batiki, in front of Wainiketei Bay—the island’s interior lagoon—you’ll find Mua Village, Batiki’s second-largest settlement. Mua is home to the island’s herald chief, Toranibau.
Should you have received a jar from the Tabakaucoro family, know that your jar has been sent straight from their house in Mua Village.
Sat at the foot of Vatumatai hill, and overlooking the Nasalisali Reef lies Batiki’s biggest village: Yavu.
Yavu is the home of many families, including the Tokalaulevu, Tunis, Whippy, Rasalasea, Tutako, Vakatale, and Mudu families.
Naigani Village is Batiki’s smallest, and northernmost community, and home to the Ravaga, and Selabuco families.
Set upon the beaches of Vatukaca Reef, Naigani was particularly affected by Tropical Cyclone Winston in February of 2016.
Settled between Ucuinivatu Point and Cakolau Beach is Batiki’s easternmost village, Manuku. The village is famed for its nearby reefs and the variety of sea life that resides there.
The Tabaki, Kalawa and Vaka families reside in Manuku Village.
