Vava’u, Tonga Overview
The Vavaʻu group measures about 21 km from east to west and 25 km from north to south. Vavaʻu had 15,485 inhabitants at the 2006 census total of 121 square kilometres (47 sq mi). 3,900 lived in the capital Neiafu. The main island of Vavaʻu is 89.74 square kilometres (34.65 sq mi), the second largest island in Tonga.
Vava’u is a coral reef with superior oblique in the north up to 200 metres (660 ft) high cliffs. On the south side of the island group, it is dissolved into many small islands and waterways. The largest of these waterways, the fjord-like Ava Pulepulekai channel extends 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) inland from the harbor of Neiafu, the capital.
The Vavaʻu island is a raised platform of coral cliffs on the north coast and a low and irregular coastline south that opens in a complex network of channels, bays and islands forming one of the best protected natural harbors in the Pacific.
Vavaʻu is also home to the ‘Ene’io Botanical Gardens, Tonga’s only botanical garden.
