The Ha’apai Group Of Islands

Isolated and quiet, a true diamond.

The Haa’pai group is the middle island group of Tonga and offers the perfect combination of Deep, clear water, Great accommodation, good food and private, endless beaches. The whales are in abundance and there are very few operators. This allows for a much more “ecological” and personal experience. We have chosen Ha’apai as it offers the “real Tongan island” Experience! You will be able to walk on an endless beach for an hour without seeing another person, Swim in crystal clear water, snorkel around the many reefs and experience true serenity.

We have chosen Ha’apai over the more touristy Vava’u as it delivers a completely different experience. There are as many whales in Ha’apai if not more, but with only 5 whale swim boats there is a lot less pressure on the whales and we never have to wait for another boat to finish swimming with a whale before you jump in.

Ha’apai also offers unique snorkelling and freediving experiences – from the Arch (an underwater bridge at 25m), the caverns (a series of swim-throughs in depths ranging from 5-22m), to the many sea mountains and reefs surrounding Uoleva island (The island we stay on).

Lastly, in most cases, the whales are just in fornt of the resort, so there is not much wasted travel time before we encounter the whales.
