Introducing Futuna & Alofi
Sweet, flower-scented Futuna embraces its visitors with sumptuous jungles, sparkling beaches and a very intact traditional culture. There is absolutely no tourist infrastructure out here so, unless you know someone, getting around ranges from the impossible to the extremely expensive. You'll need to stay awhile to crack this place open, but once you do you may never want to leave. It's divided into two kingdoms, Alo and Sigave, which nowadays live in peaceful if not competitive harmony with each other.
Uninhabited Alofi, with its tropical forest and beach, is a piece of paradise. A strait less than 2km wide separates the two islands.
