Vavaʻu is an island chain of one large island and 40 smaller ones in Tonga. According to tradition Maui fished both Tongatapu and Vavaʻu but put a little more effort into the former. Vavaʻu rises 204 meters above sea level.
The capital is Neiafu, which is the second largest city in Tonga, situated at one of the best harbours of the world, the Port of Refuge (Puatalefusi or Lolo-ʻa-Halaevalu).
Vavaʻu is a prime fishing destination with its beautiful harbour and untouched seas.
In Polynesia it is explained that the islands were created by the god Maui, that caught the bottom of the sea with his magic hook and left what became the islands of Vava’u. In total there are 70 islands, of which 17 are inhabited, spread over six districts.
The Vava’u group measures about 21 km from east to west and 25 km from north to south. Vava’u had 15 485 inhabitants at the 2006 census total of 121 square kilometers. Well 3,900 lived in the capital Neiafu. The main island of Vava’u is 89.74 square kilometers, the second largest island in Tonga.
