How to Get Here 
Vava’u is a group of islands 275 miles north of the main Tongan island of Tongatapu .  International flights fly into Tongatapu regularly from many destinations. There is currently one domestic carrier operating here in Vava’u but it seems hard to get any info from travel agents regarding them so hopefully the following info will be of assistance.

We always recommend obtaining travel insurance when traveling to remote locations.

Daily (except Sunday)  transfers take approximately 1 hour.
When you arrive at the international terminal in Tongatapu there is little or no information about transferring to domestic flights, but what you need to do is get a taxi (they’ll be waiting right outside the terminal door) and take a 2 min ride down the road to the domestic terminal (should cost about $5 per person). 
When you get to Vava’u we can arrange for the best taxi driver in Vava'u to meet you at the airport in Vava’u to transfer you to Lucky's for $50.  He will stop in town allowing you to collect supplies before coming out to Lucky's Beach.  Just send us your flight details and confirm the day before.


The new ferry MV 'Otuanga'afa is running fairly regularly now.  Information about cost and schedule can be found at

Another cheaper travel option for getting to Vava’u is the ferry from Tongatapu which comes to Vava’u once a week, but booking requires a bit of research and the sources are in Nuku'alofa.   This option is good if you are bringing large, or heavy sports equipment.
