The Phoenix Islands are located in the Pacific and are actually a group of atolls and submerged coral reefs. Because of their isolated location, the islands have a wide array of undisturbed ecosystems, and the population of flora and fauna found here are virtually undisturbed by men.

The Mamanuca Islands in Fiji are a volcanic archipelago composed of at least 20 islands. They are a very popular tourist destination, but several of these islands are still largely uninhabited due to the absence of a water source. One of the islands in the group (Monuriki) was used as the set location for the movie Cast Away.

Smile at whatever happens.

Tetepare Island is a part of the Solomon Islands, and is the largest island in the South Pacific still to be uninhabited. The island is covered by rainforest and its coasts are fringed with reefs. Although there were a few settlements, they were abandoned some 200 years ago for unknown reasons. Very spooky.

Smile at whatever happens.
