Ha'apai Group

Health & safety

Dangers & annoyances

Snappy, pack-forming dogs are occasionally hazardous here, as elsewhere in Tonga. Seek out tide charts and local knowledge on currents before slipping into the sea.

Ha'apai's brackish water should be used only for washing and bathing. Drinking water is collected in rainwater cisterns.
