The isles of Vava'u (pronounced "vav-ah-oo"), part of the Pacific island kingdom of Tonga, are just as you might imagine paradise to be. Here, you can stroll along near-empty palm-fringed beaches, snorkel in the balmy blue waters of Mala Passage, go big-game fishing or head to the offshore reefs for superb diving with exceptional underwater visibility – often as much as 30 meters (100 feet).
The Tongan king went on a public diet to set an example to his people, but who can blame them for indulging? Feasting is a time-honored Tongan tradition and visitors are encouraged to join in.
Explore this South Sea paradise on a scenic island drive, including a tour of a vanilla plantation. View the vanilla plants and learn about the processing of their aromatic pods into by-products such as vanilla extract.
