Went snorkelling here about 6 times. You need to pick your times around high tide and about 3 hours either side. That gives you 6 hours to play with. Lovely coral, you look for the brilliant stuff, lots of fish, sea stars, starfish, sea snakes,...More

Lovely beach and sunsets - great snorkelling. Surfing is good on the reef - heaps of tropical fish. Not happy about the locals leaving rubbish everywhere though. Whales can be seen regularly outside of the reef between July to November

a great place to snorkel, watch sunsets and laze about. stay at a resort on this beach, but Liku alofa resort has the best restaurant and facilities. be careful around the reef when snorkelling and take your own mask etc.

Really chilled out beach with not a lot of people. The water was warm and the sand starched for ages. Everything you would want from a South Pacific Beach.

There is a bus 6 days a week. Goes both ways. Get precise directions before you go. The bus will go straight along the main road and then you will need to walk a little. Times for buses are variable I suspect. Many of the... More
