Wallis and Futuna, officially called the Territory of Wallis and Futuna Islands (French: Wallis et Futuna or Territoire des îles Wallis et Futuna), is a group of three volcanic tropical islands Wallis (Uvea), Futuna, and Alofi with fringing reefs. They are in the South Pacific Ocean between Fiji and Samoa. One of the islands in the group is named after Cornish explorer Samuel Wallis.
