Aniwa is a tiny island in the southernmost Tafeaprovince, Vanuatu. As a coral island (raised coral atoll), Aniwa rises almost 42 m (138 ft) above sea level. Itcharo (Tiaro) lagoon lies in the northwest. It is open to the sea. Tanna is the nearest large island, situated 24 km (15 ml) to the southwest.
Like nearby West Futuna, it's a Polynesian outlier, and thus the inhabitants originally came from Samoa, Wallis and Futuna group instead of Melanesians of other nearby isles, though there's been much intermarriage over the generations with Tanna. Futunan is the language of both islands, in the Futunic branch of Nuclear Polynesian languages. The population of Aniwa is about 350 in 5 distinct villages, with the main being Ikaokao, situated in the centre of the south of the isle, followed by Isavai in Aniwa's centre.
