Mounu Island, Kingdom of Tonga


I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Tonga twice in the last 18 months.

On my second trip we had an opportunity to visit the northern most grouping of Tongan Islands.

Mounu Island, situated to the south of the Vava’u Archipelago, is one of those Islands.

The Vava’u archipelago consists of around 50 islands formed by volcanic mountains rising from the sea.

The waters surrounding these islands are crystal clear, a light aqua blue with white sandy bottoms  reflecting the deep blue of the skies above.

A 6 acre coral atoll fringed by white sands set amongst spectacular coral reefs, Mounu is spectacular both in appearance  and accommodation.

The privately owned resort on the island offers complete peace and privacy in a pristine tropical setting.

Four  thatched huts, known as “fales”,  all situated on the waters edge make up the accommodation.

Activities from the Island include whale watching, snorkeling, diving, light tackle fishing, bird watching, guided tours, kite surfing, sailing.

Getting there is via plane to Vava’u Island and then charter boat to the island.

Definitely a pivotal location for the discerning traveler.
