Nananu-I-Ra is an island located in Fiji about 3 km (1,9 ml) off the north coast of the main island Viti Levu, close to the town of Rakiraki, Ra Province. Nananu-I-Ra Island is 3,5 km2 (1,35 ml2) and has a maximum elevation of 180 m (590 ft).

  • In Fijian, the meaning of the name "Nananu-I-Ra" is "Daydream of the West". According to Fijian mythology, Nananu-I-Ra is a point of departure for disembodied spirits which leave this world for the afterlife.
  • Once Nananu-I-Ra Island had a thriving ecological balance featuring a pure and delicate synergy of wildlife, vibrant estuaries, corals and settlers that have been affected by the polarization of ideas, interests and architecture that in the current timeframe has affected the destination because of the rising sea levels, depleting aquifer and sea life degradation.
  • Plans are currently underway by various Interest groups with the goal of restoring a balance of historic, national and biospheric Importance. The highest peak and look out point on island's Eastern side bears the remnants of ancient settlement complete with fractured and decorated pottery in its low-lying areas as well as the legend of mythical creatures.
