Wallis and Futuna is a cluster of islands located in the South Pacific Ocean, northeast of Fiji. It’s an overseas collectivity of France, with a rich and fascinating cultural heritage.

The official language of Wallis and Futuna is Wallisian, however French is also widely spoken. A great thing about these islands is that they are not very crowded, making them perfect for those looking for some peace and quiet in nature.

Major points of interest include Le Mont de Tagao, an impressive mountain peak which provides stunning views over the island, as well as traditional fishing villages like Sigave where one can experience local culture up close. The Cathedral Notre Dame de l’Assomption, built in 1887, is another popular tourist attraction. For those wishing to relax on pristine beaches, Alofi Island has some of the best.

One lesser known but equally amazing destination is Uvea Island. This small island has some beautiful traditional villages as well as plenty of untouched nature just waiting to be explored. Here visitors can find themselves surrounded by lush green hills and idyllic beaches.

An interesting fact about Wallis and Futuna is that it is home to one of the most remote airfields in the world – Maowo Airport – located far away from any major city or airport.
