Fafa Island is a small coral cay off the coast of Nukualofa (Tongatapu Island). Protected by a coral reef, Fafa has safe swimming and snorkeling.
Fafa's sole development is the Fafa Island resort whose grounds take up about half the island. The fales (cabins) are isolated enough and surrounded by vegetation to feel as if you have the whole island to yourself.
Away from the resort is a pleasant walk into the island's rainforested interior and out to different vantage points on the coast. The walk takes about 30 minutes to complete or longer if you wish to appreciate the native flora and fauna onroute.
A walk around the island is also possible, but at high tide, certain parts of the coast become impassable if you are not willing to swim. The beach around the island is broken up by 3 separate exposed reefs and there are mangroves trees, coconut palms, and pandanus palms that fringe the beaches.
The beaches on Fafa are superb and there are some old wooden deck chairs and hammocks spaciously scattered around coastline if you wish to just relax and soak up the sun and scenery.
