It's located 290 kilometres north of Nuku Alofa, Tonga's capital city.
You should always know where the closest natural escape lies. Here, it's Mt. Talau National Park, 16 kilometres out of Foiata Island.
Into swinging by Vava'u Harbor and St. Joseph's Cathedral? They're near the middle of Otea, 11 kilometres to the east. Alternatively, travel to Toula. It's 17 kilometres to the east of Foiata Island and well-known for Beluga Diving Vava'u and the Ene'io Botanical Garden.
If you think it's time to release your inner adventurer, get ready for some hiking. That said, there aren't many better ways to discover the landscapes of this region than with a bit of caving.
Keeping up with a jam-packed travel schedule can sometimes burn you out. Why not head outdoors and enjoy some leisurely beach combing or sunbathing?
Sure, it's nice to be alongside the water, but it's going to be way more fun to be in or on it! Make the most of the chance to have a go at the region's wonderful watersports, such as swimming and snorkeling.
Spend a few hours indoors taking in the hidden treasures of the region's nature museums, history museums, art galleries and indoor markets.
If you ask residents about places to go in the surrounding area, you'll most likely be directed to the intriguing farms, open-air markets and gardens.
If you enjoy learning about history, you'll be delighted to know that there are a few traditional villages and archeological sites close by. Step back in time and acquaint yourself with the region's rich history.
Whether or not you believe in a greater power, a visit to one of the surrounding churches is a fantastic opportunity to get some insight into the area's religion.
There is no better way to get to know a destination than to literally take a bite out of it! You're invited to explore Tonga by trying some of its best food and drink.
If you're studying a menu, there's every chance you'll come across meals with rice or taro. They're two ingredients which are typically used in the cooking here.
There's always a local plate or two that you need to cross of the list, and when you're in Foiata Island, lu (beef and coconut wrapped in taro leaves) is definitely one of them. Feke (grilled ocotpus/squid) is another iconic dish that isn't to be missed.
Dessert is always OK on holiday, so why not tuck into some fresh fruit? It's worth every single calorie!
Travelling is more than just posing for photos and trying out local cuisine. It's also about interacting with the people and their culture. Make the most of your Tonga holiday by learning a few local words and phrases. You'll be glad you learnt 'Teke lava tauolunga mo au?', which is how they say 'would you like to dance?'. 'Ma'u ha 'aho fiefie' ('happy birthday') is one more you may need.
Before you pack up and say "Nofo ā ", why not spend the remainder of your holiday allowance and treat yourself to some souvenirs of Foiata Island?
Foiata Island's closest terminal is Vava'u Airport (VAV). When you're ready to pack up your bag and hit the tarmac, travel 25 kilometres to the northeast.
