Population of Cities in Fiji 2023
An archipelago in the South Pacific ocean, Fiji consists of more than three hundred islands and is known for its spectacular landscapes, beaches and coral reefs. It has two main islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, and these are home to the majority of the population of almost 900,000 residents. The capital city of Suva is on Viti Levu, and is a port city that still retains some British colonial architecture. Most of the population of Viti Levu live in and around Suva – in fact, its population of 600,000 accounts for the majority of both main islands.
The second-largest island, Vanua Levu, was previously known as Sandalwood Island, and lies to the north of Viti Levu. Vanua Levu has a population of around 135,000 residents. The largest settlement on the island is Labasa, which has a population of almost 30,000, and is a major centre of Fiji's sugar industry. Other parts of Vanua Levu are very popular tourist destinations for diving and yachting. Of the remaining islands, only 110 are permanently inhabited and these are home to the remaining population of Fiji.
