General Information About Niuas

The Niuas (Niuatoputapu and Niuafo'ou) are reachable by weekly flights from Vava'u.

Niuatoputapu is 240km north of Vava'u and has a population of around 1400. It has beautiful white beaches, particularly on the north-west side of the island.

Niuafo'ou is the northernmost island of Tonga. It is known as Tin Can island from the fact that in earlier times mail was delivered and picked up by strong swimmers who would retrieve packages sealed up in a biscuit tin and thrown overboard from passing ships.

Niuafo'ou is the tip of an underwater volcano. The last eruption was in 1946, after which the whole island was evacuated for ten years. Accommodation on both islands is limited.
