The islet of Hofliua (Split Island)
Hofliua or Split Island (above) is a small volcanic island 7.5 kilometres west of rotuma. It is composed of volcanic tuff. The island gets its name from the spectacular split which divides it from the sky to the ocean. Large boulders are trapped near the top of the split while at sea level the gap is wide enough to allow the passage of canoes. The island is a very important seabird rookery.
