The Kingdom of Tonga is situated in the South Pacific archipelago between Fiji and Samoa sitting just west of the international dateline making you the first  person to greet the sun each morning.
Just over 60 islands form the Vava'u group  but only 17 are inhabited resulting in a picturesque, unspoilt part of the world.

The Beach House and Coral Cottage are based on the island of Fofoa within the Vava’u island group. We recommend Fiji Airways flight from Nadi to Vava'u on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday.

 Air New Zealand flies  to Nuku’alofa, Tonga from Auckland and Sydney. Lulutai is the domestic airline for your journey to Vava'u from Tongatapu.

NOTE: You need a valid passport and an onward ticket to be granted a tourist visa for 1 month upon arrival, but double-check with authorities prior to departure as rules can vary slightly for different countries.

Like all  remote destinations, we recommend all our guests buy good travel insurance for any unforeseen delays or changes to schedule.

The island of Fofoa is a 40minute boat ride from the main town, Neiafu which has restaurants/bars, shops and a local market as well as a well-equipped pharmacy, onsite Doctor and a bank with ATM. When you arrive into Lupepauʻu airport, we organize a taxi pick up, meet you in town and bring you to the island on our boat, Lavinuella. Transfer rates are 290TOP pp for a return trip. NOTE: during our busy season pick up is normally at 3pm from the main wharf.

"The colours of the lagoon are breathtaking. I didn't believe it could look like the photos but the reality is even better."
