Faro Island (ファロ島 is a fictional island in the Farotō)Solomon Islands which appears in the 1962 Toho Godzilla film, King Kong vs. Godzilla. It is home to several monsters including King Kong, as well as a substantial indigenous human civilization.
An expedition by Pacific Pharmaceutical arrives on the island with the intention of finding the special Farolacton berries which only grow in the island's jungle. At first, they are not welcomed by the island's tribe, but relations improve after the expedition's members exchange modern goods with the natives, and they are allowed to head further into the island after hearing King Kong's roar. After an encounter with the Giant Lizard, the expedition returns to the native village, and the Giant Octopus appears, trying to steal the Farolacton from a hut. After Kong arrives and defeats the Giant Octopus, he proceeds to drink several vases of Farolacton offered to him and then falls asleep during the midst of a special chant carried out by the natives. The expedition force then sneaks Kong off the island, and onto a raft attached to a ship headed to Japan.
- Faro Island is likely inspired by an actual place in the Solomon Islands called Fauro Island, which was occupied by Japan during World War II.
- The language spoken by the natives on Faro Island incorporates English phrases like "go back", "wrong place", and "you two".
