Aoba Island

Aoba, also known as Ambae, is an island in the South Pacific island nation of Vanuatu. Ambae has a population of less than 10,000, divided into 3-4 discernible language groups (North/East Ambae language centered around the Lombaha area, West Ambae language centered around Nduindui, and South Ambae language centered around Redcliff). The island has no considerable towns, though the Penama provincial center is located at Saratamata on East Ambae, and there are three airstrips with service by Air Vanuatu, at Walaha(W), Redcliff(S), and Longana(E).

This is the island on which Michener based his fictional island Bali Ha'i in his book Tales of the South Pacific.
