Surfing in Tonga

Tonga has become a more popular surf destination in recent years- for a number of reasons.

Being only a few hours flight from Auckland being one of them! Tonga consists of the main island of Tongatapu plus the island chains of Ha’apai and Vava’u.

The Ha’atafu Beach Resort is located on the main island of Tongatapu on the Western tip of the island.. which is perfect as its one of the few islands in the Pacific where both North and South swells hit the reef and the trade winds are offshore ALL year round! Surf breaks here are generally more forgiving than most other Pacific Islands and it’s a good stepping stone for those moving from beach breaks to reef breaks.

The camp, run by an Aussie and his family, is located on a beautiful beach and lagoon, with a couple of breaks out front, with a handful more a short walk away. The camp offers exceptional value for money and needs to be booked well in advance.
