We knew when we first spied Uoleva Island and Taiana's Place from our boat transfer that we were in for the adventure of a lifetime. Noah, Finau, Kalafi, and Taiana are the friendliest and most gracious host and their tropical getaway is a true deserted island experience. My wife and I are avid snorkellers and this location never disappointed us. A few minutes walk either left or right down the beach and gorgeous reef teeming with fish and marine invertebrates await those that want the experience. Our first day there we went on a walkabout thru the interior of the island to see the other side. We took along their dog Scooby who just went chasing pigs and chickens while we tramped thru the forest. Just before we found the other side we heard the chatter from the trees and looked up to find that we were underneath the flying fox or fruit bat roost. Too cool. We spent two weeks with this Tongan family and will definitely be back. While you are there listen to Kalafi's stories of old Tonga. Very interesting. Thank you also goes out to Noah and Finau's son Malakai for the beautiful shell he presented to Dionne on our arrival and for climbing the coconut trees to get us our Tongan sodas.
