Epic Island Hopping! The Motu.
The ‘Motu’ is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience while visting Tuvalu. It is a stunning small island chain strung together with near perpendicular corners that creates a naturally protected lagoon. It’s beyond a doubt, a world class hidden treasure. The village inside the Motu is everything you would dream an island village should be (and they generally are not). It is pristine, sustainable, superiorly well organized and manicured and it will surely have you completely envious that you don’t live a lifestyle so much in touch with Nature. On the way out and back, you will pass by many other beautiful, low lying islands. All in all, it’s a day trip that will last a lifetime.

Or if you’re the more adventurous type, we don’t mind you taking a net out and experiencing the local style of fishing. Just don’t get too excited when you finally catch one though, you might scare the fish around you…and the people too!
