This friendly place sits on a sparkling cove, with a hodgepodge of lodgings that range from traditional open fale and enclosed bungalows perched over the surf to blissfully air-conditioned suites. There’s a good restaurant and bar, free kayaks and fishing tours on offer (from ST800 for two anglers). Ask the lovely owners about the site's fascinating history.
