Tonga - Vava'u
Tonga is in the top 10 beaches and small islands for travel in Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2014 guide. Shh, don't tell everyone!
Situated approximately 240 kilometres north of Tongatapu, the Vava'u Island Group is a smattering of 50-odd islands, in an area 23 by 25 kilometres, protected by a semi-circular reef. The islands are separated by reefs or open water, but are not great paddling distances apart
