Two Weeks

Throw in a visit to Ha’apai on your way back south from Vava’u. Lower than low-key, this is the place to be if you're really on the run from the stresses of life elsewhere. Sleep, read, eat, drink and strap on a snorkel at least once a day. Back on Tongatapu, fly out to nearby ’Eua, an emerging ecotourism destination which offers up hiking trails, rainforest and raucous birdlife.
