Visiting Nukunonu is not an easy, however a fulfilling experience. Starting out in
either New Zealand or the United States, the pre-final destination should be
Apia in West Samoa. Apia has a great airport, with airport code APW,
and can be reached with direct flights from Auckland, New Zealand and
indirect from the United States through Hawaii and American Samoa.
Once arrived in Apia you already feel the great atmosphere of the
Polynesian Region already. ‘Take it easy’ is THE way to handle
life in this beautiful part of the world. Nukunonu is a boat
ride away, from the harbor in Apia. The boat normally runs
every two weeks or so, and sometimes even more often!
The Tokelau Liaison Office in Apia, located just off the main
road (every cab driver knows it), knows exactly at what date and
what time the boat will depart. People to Nukunonu have to travel
with the MV Tokelau, the only boat currently sailing to the islands.
The great food and hospitality on board will tick the time away.
With the speed of 10 knots, the boat will arrive the following day
(30 hours later) Tokelau. Nukunonu is one of the three atolls you visit,
the other two are Atafu and Fakaofo. Simply depart at Nukunonu and
then you’re ready for your visit.
Nukunonu is the only Tokelau atoll that has housing and hotel facilities.
With one hotel and one resort on the island Nukunonu is the best
accommodated for the adventure traveler.
