Pavuvu Island

Pavuvu Island is located in the Central Province of the Solomon Islands, about 200 miles east of the capital of Honiara. The island is about 2 miles long and 1 mile wide, with a total area of about 1.7 square miles. It is surrounded by a coral reef and is home to a variety of tropical fish, birds, and other wildlife.

The island was first settled by Polynesian people, who arrived in the late 18th century. They established a small village and began cultivating the land. The island was later colonized by the British in the late 19th century, and it became part of the British Solomon Islands Protectorate.

During World War II, Pavuvu Island was the scene of fierce fighting between American and Japanese forces. The Battle of Pavuvu was fought in late October of 1944, and the Americans were victorious. The island was later used as a rest and recreation center for American troops, and it was the site of the first Marine Corps airfield in the Solomon Islands.
