Our Environment

Pure, fresh air abounds in Vava’u. Annually the prevailing winds blow from the west and pass between Australia and Antarctica across the Great Southern Ocean before heading north up the coast of South America and then across the Pacific Ocean to Vava’u in Tonga. The winds are not exposed to major population or industrial areas and are cleansed as they make their journey over the Pacific to Vava’u. This makes the Vava’u air quality some of the best in the world.

The ocean waters near Vava’u come from some of the deepest parts of the world’s oceans. Like the wind it passes between Australia and Antarctica in the Great Southern Ocean before heading up into the Pacific and Tonga. The fact that the water is not exposed to major population or industrial areas means that it is unpolluted and crystal clear.
