 Vava’u is a famous destination for sailors because of its very large natural safe harbor, known as the Port of Refuge, above.

Tonga is a group of small Polynesian islands in the South Pacific east of Fiji and south of  Samoa . The nearest larger land masses are Australia , to the west and New Zealand to the south. The Vava’u island group of Tonga , where Starspring is located, is about 176 degrees west longitude and 18 degrees south latitude. Tonga is out of the way from usual travel routes, and we feel, one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The nearest town to the Starspring location on Ovaka Island is Neiafu, the capitol of Vava’u, about one hour and forty minutes by the village slow boat.

We are in Tonga because of the beautiful nature and the wonderful Tongan people. We feel the rest of the world has something to learn from the Tongan people.

Tourist activities include;
Whale watching and swimming with whales between the months of July and October.

Snorkeling and diving all year

Talking to and spending time with the wonderful Tongan people.
