Tokou is a beachside village on the east coast of Ovalau Island, about three miles from the old Fijian colonial capital of Levuka. The population of the village is approximately 700. In 2013, the United Nations named Levuka as a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Tokou is on the southern border of this UNESCO site.
The village has pledged to establish a 365-acre marine reserve for 15 years. In return, Seacology will fund the construction of a much-needed community hall to host cultural and social events. The hall will also provide a place for village women to produce handicrafts and organize fundraising activities for the village. Tourist ships are due to begin visiting Levuka in May 2009, and Tokou is on visitor itineraries. It will greatly benefit from having a venue to host guests.
