In a far remote island surrounded by the Pacific Ocean is Kia Island, the nearest inhabited island to the Great Sea Reef where the only way to get there is by boat. This boy helps his father bring the boat out of the beach with a pole to start the day's fishing activities.

Locally known as Cakaulevu, the Great Sea Reefs is the world’s third longest continuous barrier reef system. It runs for over 200km from the Northern Division’s north eastern tip of Udu point in Vanua Levu to Bua at the north west edge of Vanua Levu, across the Vatuira passage, veering off along the way to hug the coastlines of Ra and Ba provinces in Viti Levu and into the Yasawas of the Western Division. This amazing area in the South Pacific is barely known to the world.
