Geographical Oddity – Move only a step and will be Tomorrow


This is possible in this Fijian Pacific Island

Different Time Zone in Taveuni?

The International Date Line, which splits the east from the west, runs straight through the island of Taveuni. Fiji’s third-largest island, just below Vanua Levu, sits at a longitude of 180 degrees meaning that, theoretically, one side of the island exists in one day and the other side of the island exists in the next day. Don’t worry, Fiji still observes just one-time zone for the sake of logic.

Should your Fiji journey take you to Taveuni, you can actually visit a sign which marks the International Date Line. Interpretation panels explain the ins and outs of the International Date Line. Plus, it makes for a really fun photo opportunity. You’ll find it near the town of Waiyevo.
