Tongan Beach Resort on Vava'u Archipelago's 'Utungake Island
is an island hotel built not only to offer comfortable accommodations, but also
to preserve the island lifestyle. The twelve western style bungalows are right
at the water's edge on Hiku Tamole Beach, with safe swimming at both high and
low tides. The accommodations consist of double rooms with private toilets and
hot showers, refrigerators, electric fans, and tea/coffee facilities.
Divers will find "the Tongan" to be a great base of operations. Tongan scuba sites are rated among the best in the world. The sunken copra schooner in Port of Refuge Harbor is a must, as is Mariner's Cave. Take half- or full-day trips to outlying islands.
Non-divers will also find plenty to do. Snorkeling equipment, surf-skis and outrigger canoes are free to guests. Wind surfers, Hobie Cats, and Sunfish sailing boats are available for hire, as are mopeds and bicycles. Horseback riding through plantations and nearby villages, land tours via mini-bus, and all-day trimaran sailing trips can be arranged. The less adventurous may wish to stroll through the nearby village of Utungake, where native handicrafts are made.
Yacht charters on the gafftopsail ketch Melinda are available by day, overnight and weekly. Her eye-catching red sails and wooden masts provide a romantic setting to sail Vava'u's beautiful islands in style. Comes fully crewed.
