Tourism in Tokelau

Tokelau has no established tourist industry at present.  Most visitors are Tokelauans or Tokelaun descendants visiting from New Zealand, Australia and Hawaii.


Transport to and from Tokelau is by sea on fortnightly boat services from the closest port in Apia, Samoa.  The boat travels to all three atolls, taking approximately 24 hours to reach the southern most atoll of Fakaofo.  It is a further 3 and a half hours from Fakaofo to Nukunonu and a further 6 hours to the northern most atoll of Atafu.


Accommodation is provided on a private basis in village guest houses or in people's homes.  Accommodation and transport enquiries can be directed to the Department of Transport and Support Services in Apia (ph: +685 28 491).
