We can highlight 9 islands, Viti Levu (with its capital Suva) and Vanua Le vu (Labasa and Savusavu), its two biggest islands and where the majority of the population (80%). The highlight of the islands is very rugged with heights from zero meters to sea level to 1,200 meters at the highest peaks because they are treated volcanic islands.Other major islands of Fiji are Taveuni, Kadavu (the third and fourth island in size respectively) and Rotumans and five hundred kilometres north of the archipelago.
These islands are produced heavy rains (up to 304 liters each year) leading to the development of a dense tropical dense forest in most mountainous areas.
The Fiji Islands have a population of 906,000 inhabitants as of 2006, with a population density of almost 50 inhabitants/km2.
The majority of the population is Christian, but we also emphasize the Hindu and Muslim religion because of immigration from India.
