Rendova Island
Coordinates: 8°32′00″S 157°20′00″E / 8.5333333°S 157.3333333°E
Rendova Island is an island, part of the New Georgia Islands of Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, east of Papua New Guinea. There are two indigenous languages spoken on Rendova Island: the Austronesian language Ughele in the north, and the Papuan language Touo in the south.
The black-sand beaches along the South-West coast of Rendova are an important nesting ground for the critically endangered leatherback turtle[citation needed] . Community-based conservation organisation the Tetepare Descendants' Association runs a leatherback conservation program in the villages of Baniata, Havilla and Retavo on this coastline[citation needed].
Rendova is the setting for the humorous book Solomon Time by Will Randall, about a British school teacher who moves to a village on Rendova to help organise a community project.

Jeffrey Allen '00 (in the blue and in the white) made headlines in Solomon Island newspapers with his work as a big-time soccer coach a few years ago. Allen faced cross-cultural challenges, being a newcomer to the island with limited ability to communicate, the need to adjust to fluid schedules, and little social capital to smooth over fractious intra-village politics.
