We moved to White Sands Beach Resort from Fafa Island. We wanted to look around Tongatapu and needed a base where we could also cook & fend for ourselves.
White Sands is lcoated about 25minutes drive from the capital. You need a car or some other transport while you are based here as it is off the beaten track a wee bit.
The beach is amazing, i am an avid shell seeker and my daughter collects burnished glass and we spent many happy hours on that beach absolutely in our element. The volcanic rock at the edges of the beach have amazing fossils at every footstep. The lagoon - like all lagoons has its dangerous spots but we loved it for snorking or just finding a hole to lie in at low tide. it was also facinating to watch the Tongans come down in the evenings and collect seafood from the lagoon.
The owners Gloria and Ian and the manageress Pricilla are just lovely.
The units are basic but more than good enough to be a Tonga base. Our teenagers loved the pool, basketball hoop and space. Accommodation rate included breakfast of weetbix and toast and pancakes every second morning. Pricilla also made us dinner one nite which was seriously excellent and was the cheapest meal we had in Tonga at TOP20/person. We cooked our own dinner two nites in the communal kitchen - great fun learning about life in Tonga from Gloria and Pricilla.
There are a few other resorts within a 10 minute drive of White Sands which are all worth visiting - one which offers surfing and surfing lessons.
