Pick up your beautiful charter yacht at our base in the island village of Neiafu. Explore this traditional Tongan community before sailing into the South Pacific to your next destination. Cruise through the narrow inlet that shelters the marina at Neiafu and head south to the verdant island of Kapa. Anchor in the idyllic Port Maurelle Bay, where you’ll likely be the only visitors. Live out your castaway fantasies on the deserted beach, or snorkel the sapphire waters in search of Tonga’s diverse marine life.
Circle Kapa Island and head east, making a short island hop to nearby Tapana. This green and unspoilt island is the perfect place to overnight, with the islanders’ hospitality meaning you’ll likely be treated to a traditional Tongan feast when you land. The snorkelling here is excellent, while the nearby island of Nuku offers an ideal spot for a day trip.
Pick your way southwest from Tapana past the jewel-like islands of this idyllic region. Detour via remote Fonua’one’one for a day trip to an unspoilt South Pacific paradise, or press on to Mounu where you’ll find the luxuries of a modern holiday resort. Lounge on this beach-fringed isle, snorkel in the life-rich ocean or try your hand at kitesurfing the strong winds that stir the waters around Mounu.
Take the day to cruise down to Bequia, the entrance to the Grenadines and a former whale hunters’ island. Anchor in Admiralty Bay, facing the capital city of Port Elizabeth. Celebrate happy hour and have a leisurely dinner in one of the nearby restaurants.
Once customs formalities are done, do not leave without completing this step, sail towards Petit Nevis where the fishermen used to flense the whales. Then sail to Mustique, the “Jet Set” island.
Cruise back into Vava’u’s Vaipua inlet, heading north until the tiny islet of Lotuma comes into view. The perfect place to spend your last night in Tonga, Lotuma is home to a beachside resort where you can dine on fresh seafood and sip refreshing cocktails as the setting sun paints the ocean with fire.
Make the short journey north from Lotuma to the charming village of Neiafu. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before returning in time for morning check in, and spend the afternoon on shore drinking in the laid-back island atmosphere of blissful Vava’u.
