Vaka′eitu Island is linked to Nuapapu by a stunningly beautiful reef, forming a giant horseshoe-shaped bay. The small island of Lape rises 180 feet and serves as a picturesque backdrop to this scenic anchorage. Vaka′eitu cruising is a pure delight.
No moorings are available. Anchor in the bight just north of Vaka′eitu Island. There is a day anchorage on the north side of Foeata Island.
Dinghy dockage: No dinghy dockage is available.
The Blue Lagoon Restaurant is on Foeata Island, a favorite spot for groups on eco-tours to watch the humpback whales that frequent Tongan waters from July through November. The snorkeling is good on the reef. Just east of the anchorage at Vaka′eitu Island is another day anchorage off Langitau. The snorkeling is interesting off this island. Take the dinghy ashore and climb to the top of the hill. The view is magnificent.
No facilities for yachts are available.
