Join us on a remote adventure
Six years ago a sailing family the Sheen’s found a little slice of paradise, they worked on the remote idyllic beach to build a life and a home. Yes this is something out of an adventure story! Lolofutu Beach Barn is pure involvement and adventure! In today’s hustle and crowds it is becoming rarer to find such a pure and pristine existence with all the necessities for comfortable living.
The Barn is 100% off grid, environmentally aware and pro active with environment projects. To stay here is to open your heart and share the Tongan outback and culture, swim and get to know whales and discover the marine world some more. Stand up paddle board around on the reef, visit our resident “dolphriends” and snorkel over some of the best coral in all of Tonga- no joke- a recent coral survey of Tongas reefs backs this claim. Be welcomed into a local families home for a Sunday feast, learn some Tongan dance moves, weave a basket or drink some kava and make new friends.
The rewards are huge the adventure raw and pure but you have to be up for the game. Getting to a remote island with no airstrip is a challenge. Let this be your challenge or revel in the open ocean crossing to this destination of your dream. Be aware if this is you, you may never want to sail back to the main land!
