Sandy Beach Resort Details 


Sandy Beach Resort is nestled among a palm plantation at the northern end of Foa Island. It is 10km to the airport and 15 km to Pangai, the small capital of the Ha'apai island group, both located on Lifuka Island which is linked to Foa by a causeway. Ha’apai is made up of 60 islands (only 20 of which are inhabited) and is considered the heart of Tonga. The Tongan royal family has its roots here and everyday life is rich in tradition still today.
