Atata Island is a slice of paradise. With only 250 residents (all friendly beautiful Tongans!), it is truely the real Tonga.
You can snorkel the reef, surf the outer reefs, attend church and listen to the incredible voices of the church choir, spend all day swimming. The food is spectacular, with genuine Tongan delicacies on offer such as octopus (that tastes like Lobster) and Ota Ika (raw fish in coconut milk), and Pina Coladas served in the pineapple- it is a foodies paradise too.
We were serenaded every night by a host of amazing local singers, and woke every morning to the gentle lapping of the almost bath temperature water just metres from our (room).
Half an hours boat ride from the mainland, you really feel isolated in the best possible way, and the sensation is relaxing, revitalising and exhilarating.
Thank you to Lusia and her wonderful staff for a sublime two nights and two days we will never forget!
