Tiga Island
Tiga Island
Measuring only 10 square kilometers (four square miles), the tiny island of Tiga rises 76 meters (256 feet) above the Coral Sea. The domelike island, which is equidistant from neighbors Maré and Lifou, is home to around 150 people. The lack of running water and electricity means the islanders enjoy a largely traditional lifestyle, though the modest infrastructure does encompass a post office, shop, church and dairy. The opportunity to see island life as it once was makes Tiga a popular day trip from Lifou.
