Vava’u

ABOVE THE WATER

Vava’u consists of 40 smaller islands and one large island and is the hub of the Kingdom of Tonga.  Each of the islands are encircled by white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and fringing coral reefs. The first thing you will notice when landing in the Vava’u islands is that everyone is relaxed, and that’s the way it will stay for your entire trip – a genuine sense of relaxation.

Vava’u is the best location to go to see whales between July and October, as this is where they come in closest to shore. You will find yourself up close and personal with one of the most majestic creatures on the planet, the Humpback Whale. You can either watch from the boat, or jump in the water with a snorkel. The main town in the Vava’u group is Neiafu, which is a quaint seaside town that is very quiet for most of the year, and comes to life during the whale season. Shops, restaurants and banks can be found here.

BELOW THE WATER

The diving in Vava’u is excellent, with coral reefs the main attraction as well as a large wreck called the Clan McWilliam. This wreck sits upright in 23-37m of water and is best dived when the visibility is high. There are around 50 dive sites in Vava’u, and many new wrecks continue to be discovered.
