The Torres Island are the most northerly in Vanuatu. The islands were the last to be reached by explorers in the 19th century.
The group consists of six small islands which stretch for 42km. The highest point is only 200m above sea level. The terrain is less rugged than on the islands further south. The Torres Islands have white sandy beaches, and some good surf at times. The deep Torres Trench lies to the west of the islands, and marks the subduction zone between Australia and the Pacific tectonic plates.
The Torres Islands marks the boundary between betel nut chewing and kava drinking, a cultural distinction between two Melanesian groups.
Two traditional languages are spoken in the Torres Islands. Hiu (150 speakers), and Lo-Toga (650 speakers).
