Changing the map for cruising in the South Pacific
Vava’u, Ha’apai and Tongatapu. Your Pacific destination.
The Vava’u islands are considered one of the worlds finest cruising grounds. Picture-perfect with shallow lagoons, white sand beaches, coconut trees, crystal clear waters and brilliantly coloured coral and reef fish. The water ways are so well sheltered that even on a monohull your G&T is safe on the table. Yet the islands remain low enough that you can always find a good breeze and keep sailing through the glassy flat waters.
Tongatapu is the administrative centre of the Tongan Kingdom. With many cruise ships and tourists visiting, Tongatapu is also the metropolitan heart of the nation. Shopping and provisioning is made easy by a central shopping district and large indoor market. There are many tourist attractions around the island that are well worth the visit and it is highly recommended that you get out and explore.
