Modriki Island is an uninhabited small island situated off the coast of Viti Levu in the Fiji Islands, in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean. Modriki is part of the Atolls islands, and related to a group of three islets in the larger group of islands of known as the Mamanuca Islands. This coral and volcanic island is the smallest islet and the southern-most of a small group of three islets, west of Tavua.Modriki Island is of volcanic origin, with a length of 1.15km and a width of 600m. The land area is approximately 0.4km2 surrounded on all sides 360° by coral reef. The highest point is 178m. The terrain includes volcanic rocks, lagoons, palm trees, a pine forest, and several small white sand beaches.The people of Yanuya are the custodians of Modriki. With the agreement of the Mataqali Navunaivi of Yank village the National Trust of Fiji wild-life experts and other representatives from BirdLife International and Nature Fiji, NTF, with colleagues from the non-government organization BirdLife International, have been restoring the habitat on Modriki since 2011.Modriki Island was featured as the anonymous island in the 2000 Robert Zemeckis film, Cast Away, starring Tom Hanks (see below); some tourists and travel agents refer to Modriki as 'Cast Away Island', which is not to be confused with Castaway Island, or Qalito, an actual Fijian island within the Mamanuca Islands.
