Hotels [edit]

The choice of accommodation options in Vava'u islands is limited, and mainly concentrated around the main town of Neiafu. However you can easily find both cheap guesthouses from US$50 per night, as well as luxury beach resorts on tiny islands up to US$1000.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Tonga International Airport (TBU). Next take a domestic flight to Vavaʻu International Airport (VAV).

Season charter flights from Fiji are also available during the high season, thus giving to Vava'u airport an international status.

There is also ferry connection with Nuku'alofa and with Ha'apai islands. But the distance is large, and no one in a clear mind should seriously consider this transportation option.
