About the neighborhood
The Beach House looks out over the incredibly clear waters known as the Blue Lagoon and across to Fulefuka (an uninhabited island easily accessible by kayak or even a snorkel)and Foiata . A 15minute bush walk across the island takes you to the Hunga Lagoon and a short dinghy ride takes you to the village of Hunga. There are a range of activities right from the beach including excellent snorkeling, kayaking, surfing and kitesurfing. We also offer our guests fishing (all year round) and whale watching/swimming from July-October.
Getting around
There are no cars on Fofoa but its big enough for exploring and bush walks. We provide kayaks for exploring the nearby islands.
