Tokelau, a remote country in the Pacific Ocean, is made up of three small atolls: Atafu, Nukunonu and Fakaofo. Despite its size, Tokelau's culture is rich and its hospitality even warmer. Tokelauans are friendly and welcoming to visitors who come to experience the beauty of this untouched paradise.

Surrounded by turquoise lagoons and coral reefs, Tokelau offers a range of activities including swimming, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing and kayaking. Here you can explore some of the most beautiful beaches in the world – such as Alofi Beach on Nukunonu Island or Falefa Beach on Fakaofo Island – or take part in traditional activities like weaving and sand drawing with local children.

An interesting fact about Tokelau is that 80% of its energy needs are met through solar power. This makes it the first nation in the world to be completely powered by solar!

One of the best ways to experience the true beauty of this archipelago is by taking a boat trip around the islands. You'll have the chance to see local wildlife including dolphins, green turtles and birds in their natural habitats.

In addition to its stunning beaches, Tokelau also boasts some interesting points of interest including Olohega Cultural Site on Atafu Island and the Meteorological Monument on Fakaofo Island. A hidden gem in Tokelau is the captivating Moana Lupe Waterfall on Nukunonu Island, which is best visited on a hike through the tropical forest.

Tokelau is truly an idyllic destination for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With its turquoise lagoons and unspoiled beaches, it's the perfect place to relax and immerse yourself in Pacific Island culture.
