I came across this article: http://worldnewsdailyreport.com/david-rockefellers-sixth-heart-transplant-successful-at-age-99/

enter image description here

Where a "Hanuatu Island complex" is mentioned and a photography of it attached. I was curious where exactly this island complex is located. Surprisingly enough I am unable to find anything but countless copies of this article and this photo.

    World News Daily Report is a fake news site. Most probably the whole story, including the existence of the island, is fictitious. Jan 23 '16 at 1:32

    The photo is Neckar Island in British Virgin Islands owned by Richard Branson and available for private stays for a mere $78k per night.

  • @NateEldredge Apparently, this article has now been removed precisely for being fake.

The island in the photo is actually Necker Island and is privately owned by Richard Branson, so it's most likely quite hard for the average traveller to visit.

World News Daily Report is actually a fake news website, as their About page states:

World News Daily Report is an American Jewish Zionist newspaper based in Tel Aviv and dedicated on covering biblical archeology news and other mysteries around the Globe.


There is a diocese (possibly an Island) in the Solomon Islands group called Hanuato, I don't know if this is what you're looking for?


It's in Vanuatu, a South Pacific Ocean nation made up of roughly 80 islands that stretch 1,300 kilometers. The islands offer scuba diving at coral reefs, underwater caverns and shipwrecks.

    While it's true that searching for "Hanuatu Island complex" will return hits for Vanuatu, I am not aware of any island in the chain with that name. The picture in the question has been identified as another island entirely - it appears the "Hanuatu Island complex" is fictional. If you are sure it's in Vanuatu, a scan of a map or link to a government web site including it would be helpful May 26 '16 at 14:34
