Beqa Island
 
Beqa (pronounced Mbenga) is an island belonging to Fiji in the Southern Pacific, to the north of New Zealand and to the east of Australia. Beqa is located 7.5km to the south of of Navua, the closest city on the neighbouring island Viti Levu.
 
The island covers an area of 32 square kilometres, similar to the size of the city of Basel; with clearly less inhabitants as only 2’000 people are living on the island.
 
The island is surrounded by a fringing reef. The whole lagoon, containing the islands Beqa, Yanuca, Stewart and two sand islets, is encircled by a barrier reef. Both reefs are colourful coral reefs. The Beqa lagoon provides all necessary conditions for such reefs, as the temperature of the clear, flat water never goes below 18°C.
