Faore is an island of the Sikaiana atoll in the Malaita Province, Solomon Islands in the South Pacific. The local name is Matuiloto. Faore is one of four islands of Sikaiana (formerly called the Stewart Islands) which is a small, remote tropical coral atoll located at latitude and longitude 8°25′0″S 162°52′0″E. Sikaiana is 212 kilometres (132 miles) NE of Malaita in Solomon Islands in the south Pacific Ocean. It is almost 14 kilometres (8.7 miles) in length and its lagoon, known as Te Moana, is totally enclosed by the coral reef. The main island at Sikaiana atoll, located at the easternmost corner, is called Sikaiana. The three small islands in the west of the atoll are Tehaolei (north), Matuiloto / Faore (west), and Matuavi (south). There are also two artificial islands on the reef, Te Palena and Hakatai'atata. Its total land surface is only 2 square kilometres (0.77 square miles). There is no safe anchorage close to this atoll, which makes it often inaccessible to outsiders. // Resources: Find Faore on OpenStreetMap. // SIKAIANA, A Contemporary Polynesian Society // Sikaianaarchives by William W.
