Navo Island

For centuries Navo Island has been treasured as a special place by the people of Sanasana Village. Located across the channel from Navo Restaurant, the island was once used as a settlement and place of retreat during times of war and conflict, where women and children were sheltered by warriors in secret interior caves and as a burial ground for high chiefs.

Today, the people of Sanasana choose to live on the mainland and revere the island as a place of historical significance and a sacred burial place for local chiefs and dignitaries. Surrounded on one side by rolling seas & coral reefs and the other by a tranquil lagoon, the local community can often be seen gathering shell fish and fishing using traditional methods on and around Navo Island.
