Silversea Luxury Cruises A Ovaka


Ovaka is a small island less than two miles across and just half a mile from north to south. It is one of 70 islands of the Vava’u archipelago in the nation Tonga. According to Polynesian legend, the Vava’u islands were brought to the surface by the demi-god Maui, fished from the bottom of the sea by his magic hook. The namesake village on this island is located at the northeast corner of this oddly-shaped land mass. View more

Similar to many coastal communities in Tonga, the village of Ovaka is experiencing a loss of fish habitat as well as land erosion, making it a target for aid by conservation organizations like Seacology and the Tonga Community Development Trust. Despite its challenges, Ovaka is graced with beautiful beaches and clear blue water, ideal for snorkeling to view the beautiful coral and diverse coral fish living in the surrounding lagoon.
