Haapai Group of Islands

Nukunamo Island is one of the 60 island that made up the Haapai Group of Island. It is also known as Tonga's best kept secret, it is also renowned for its quiet and mellow lifestyle, and relaxation, but its does have a very colourful past.

Unbeknown to many, many of the most famous events in the South Pacific occurred here. Capt. James Cook was so impressed with the Tongans' hospitality in 1773 and 1777 that he named the group the "Friendly Islands." in 1789 sailors led by Fletcher Christian of HMS Bounty staged their famous mutiny against Captain Bligh setting him adrift in a longboat off Tofua island.

In 1806 the locals ransacked the British privateer Port-au-Prince, killing all of its crew except the young Will Mariner, who lived to write about his adventure. Old folk stories tell of the lost treasure of the Port-au-Prince, making for interesting diving and snorkelling. Ha'apai offers amazing underwater scenery ideal for diving and snorkelling while its tranquil waters are excellent for kayaking across colourful lagoons for a stroll on a white deserted beach!
