Nimataka is the eleventh island settlement of Itokani, located in the Northern Ocean in the region of Senikau. The island was built by McYoshi26, the mayor of Itokani. Construction of the island began on September 23, 2022, and was completed on August 30, 2023.

Nimataka is notable for housing Turtle Rock, which has a large in-game map of Itokani inside and the Tree of Wishes on top.


Turtle Rock with Lomadonu Falls

During the construction of Waitui, Nimataka was officially claimed on August 20, 2020. It was planned to be Itokani's sixth island settlement to have major construction; however, it was postponed.

Two years later, construction on the island officially began on September 23, 2022, with minor terraforming. On November 16, 2022, the walls of the rock were built, with the top being placed in a day later. On the night of October 28, 2022, the Nimataka West Dock was built on the island and connected the island to Karakarawa. A day later, Lomadonu Falls, Yasana Falls, and the Drokadroka Lighthouse were added to the island.

On November 7, 2022, the Nimataka Helipad and a Sailas helicopter flight were added atop the rock, connecting the island to Lailai.

A path was originally planned to warp around the outside of the rock similar to Porton; however, this idea was scrapped and replaced with an internal staircase. Openings into the internal cavern of the rock were created on February 12, 2023. After a hiatus on construction, the Nimataka Tourism Information Center was built on August 23, 2023. Foliage was placed on the island on the following day. The A Roma Coffeehouse was completed on August 28, 2023, and the rest of the top of the rock was completed a day later with the completion of the Tree of Wishes.

Interior of Turtle Rock with the Map of Itokani on the floor

After months of cartography even before Nimataka was claimed, the Map of Itokani was completed on August 30, 2023, inside Turtle Rock. The island was declared completed on August 30, 2023, when the paths on the island were completed.


The island is named after the Fijian word for 'tomorrow'. A few locations on the island are set to be named after Fijian words. The Drokadroka Lighthouse is named after the Fijian word for 'green'. Lomadonu Falls is named after the Fijian word for 'central'. Yasana Falls is named after the Fijian word for 'side'.

The café atop Turtle Rock, A Roma Coffeehouse, is a parody of an Aroma Coffee, as the franchise had stopped selling new locations and it was a common theme among the tourist-related islands.

The two terracotta turtles inside Turtle Rock, named Wilhelm and Simon, are named after the protagonists from the television series Young Royals.


Situated in the Northern Ocean, the island is in the middle of the region of Senikau. Nimataka is in the middle of the Wananavu Reef. The waters surrounding the island are lukewarm and warm oceans, showing a light blue tint.

In relation to other settlements, the closest other island is Karakarawa very close to the south.

Builds and attractions

Tree of Wishes atop Turtle Rock

Nimataka has a total of three buildings: the Drokadroka Lighthouse, the Nimataka Tourist Information Center, and the A Roma Coffeehouse.

The main attraction of the island is Turtle Rock. The rock is a large, hollow rock covered in foliage growing breadfruit and calamansi. The interior of the rock is a spacious cave featuring cave vines, glow lichen, glow berries, and a complete map of Itokani. There is an interior path to the top of the rock, with the top of the rock featuring oak trees, picnic areas, the Drokadroka Lighthouse, a coffeehouse with a glass-floored viewing area, and a helicopter pad with a helicopter flight to Lailai.

The Tree of Wishes sits atop Turtle Rock. The tree is a large oak tree with approximately 200 hanging signs for which Members are free to write wishes.
