Tuvalu, the small pacific nation, is a destination for adventurous travellers seeking to explore its hidden gems. Tuvalu’s nine coral atolls are surrounded by crystal clear waters and lined with golden beaches. Tuvalu is one of the world’s least visited countries and is located halfway between Australia and Hawaii.

The most notable point of interest in Tuvalu is Funafuti Lagoon. Snorkelling in the lagoon will give you a glimpse into this beautiful paradise, where friendly sea turtles and elephant-shaped fish live amongst vibrant coral beds. As well as snorkelling, visitors can enjoy diving, fishing, boat tours or simply relaxing on the beach.

An interesting fact about Tuvalu is that it is the only country in the world with an Internet domain name ‘tv’! This makes it an attractive destination for tech-savvy travellers searching for both adventure and digital connection.

If you’re looking for something a bit off the beaten track then visit Nukufetau Atoll. Locals may take you out to the uninhabited atolls of Tepuka Savilivili or Fualefeke Island which have unique bird species and offer stunning views from atop the island’s highest point.

For a true experience of local culture, head to Kirepaua Village on Funafuti Atoll. Here you can sample traditional cuisine such as taro, banana & coconut pudding (faikakai) and learn about the local customs from the friendly locals.

Tuvalu is an adventure-seekers paradise, offering stunning beaches, great snorkelling and diving, lively culture and beautiful islands to explore. If you’re looking for a unique travel experience then Tuvalu should definitely be on your list.
