Tonga’s only resort specialising in surfing holidays. A family run hotel, Ha’atafu Beach Lodge is limited to 24 guests, ensuring a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere, as well as helping to keep the surfing friendly and uncrowded.
With twin, triple and family fales available, the resort is ideal for individuals, couples or groups, and is one of the few “user friendly” destinations in the South Pacific for the “surfing family” with most surf spots either directly out front or within short walking distance.
As well as being home to some of Tonga’s best surfing waves, Ha’atafu Beach is also Tongatapu’s premier recreational swimming and snorkelling beach, with safe all-tides swimming within the expansive lagoon area which also provides sanctuary to an astounding variety of tropical fish and corals.
The coastline here faces west-northwest making the prevailing East-Southeast tradewinds directly offshore and is open to groundswells from winter storm activity in both hemispheres. This makes Ha’atafu unique in being one of the few surfing locations in the South Pacific to enjoy world class surfing conditions year round.
