Vavau Island , Tonga

Vavaʻu is an island chain of one large island and 40 smaller ones in Tonga.
Don Francisco Antonio Mourelle was the first European to come to Vavaʻu, in February 1781. Captain James Cook knew about the island a decennium before, but the people in Haʻapai told him it would be no good for him to go there as there was no harbour. Apparently they did not want him to come, and Cook heeded their advice./Wikipedia/
