If you all want is to disappear, relax under a palm tree and not be bothered by anyone with fewe thatn 1000 tourists a year Tuvalu is the place to be.
Tuvalu is one of the world’s smallest (total land area of just 26 km2. and a population of just 8,000) and most isolated island nations. This unspoilt conrner of the Pacific offers a peaceful, and non-commercialized environment that is ideal for rest and relaxation.
Yet it is this smallness and isolation which is part of its attraction. Its nine atolls on which the Tuvaluans, direct descendants of the ancient Polynesians live, provide the kind of solace a person looking for somewhere to really escape the pressures of the outside world is seeking. You will discover a distinctive social Polynesian culture of attoll island people who vigourously maintain their unique social organisation, art, crafts, architecture, music, dance and legends.
The spectacular marine environment consisting of a vast expanse of ocean interpersed with atolls, magnificent lagoons, coral reefs and small islands all
provide a unique South Seas ambience.
