Funafuti Atoll & Fongafale Islet/Tuvalu

Introducing Funafuti Atoll & Fongafale Islet

Funafuti (foo-nah-foo-ti) Atoll is the country's capital, with the administrative centre and airport on Fongafale islet. The vast lagoon, about 24km long and 18km wide, has two small and two large te ava (reef passages). Pretty Funafala islet at the southern end of the atoll has simple accommodation, and the pristine marine conservation area on the western side is simply spectacular.
