Ha'apai Island Group

Uncrowded, unhurried and undiscovered. Well off the beaten path for visitors, the 62 scattered islands, atolls, reefs and shoals of the central island group of Ha’apai are an undeniably authentic slice of Polynesia. Looming volcanic islands, warming trade winds and pristine atolls lapped by gentle waters provide a superb tropical backdrop for more adventurous travellers. Experience Tonga’s easygoing hospitality in remote boutique eco lodges or village guesthouses, before effortlessly filling another relaxed day with sea kayaking, snorkelling or horse riding along white sandy beaches. Decisions, decisions. During his Pacific journeys, Captain James Cook dubbed the Kingdom of Tonga “The Friendly Islands” after a warm reception on the Ha’apai island of Lifuka. More than two centuries later, the welcome to 21st-century Pacific explorers is equally amicable, and local guides are keen to direct visitors to relaxation Ha’apai-style. That means more difficult island-style choices between whale watching, diving or sailing. Just take it easy, don’t hurry, and slow right down to ‘island time’.
