Makogai Island, Fiji

This incredible island was once a Lepeosorium. From 1911-1969 lepers from all over the world were brought here to live in the hospitals. These days this place is a government mariculture center where they grow dozens of varieties of coral and they even raise sea turtles. The big things here, literally speaking, are the giant clams! They grow clams here that are bigger than humans. It’s one of the coolest things to see.
