Arriving at Lalomanu Beach at 2am, we were escorted to our Fale (a rudimentary stilted room with wooden slats and tarpaulin roof) I was too tired from the flight to worry about the lack of comfort and facilities - it is literally a round hut that you can fit three people lying down in, at best!
But I have to say looking out of our Fale in the morning was a scene that I will never forget: we were atop the most stunningly white sandy beach, peering across a quintessential South Pacific sea to an uninhabited island…it really was like a scene from Blue Lagoon.
Taufua Beach Fales is the only place to stay in Lalomanu after the devastating tsunami wiped out most of the other family run operations. The open-air beachfront restaurant and bar serves some great local food, but be warned there is little to do here other than swim, snorkel, laze on the beach, so it easy to overeat! My days were spent waking up, having breakfast, going for a swim, reading my book on the beach, falling asleep, waking up for lunch and a beer, going for a swim, reading my book, falling asleep on the beach, waking up for happy hour and dinner, going to bed early…not exactly riveting stuff but one of the most relaxing holidays ever!
