Lifuka is almost entirely covered by agricultural plantations. The island boasts marvelous beaches and excellent snorkeling possibilities, especially around its western shore. On the east of Lifuka swimming is quite dangerous, as the weather is often wild there and the waves are usually very rough. in the south of Lifuka is the Olovehi Tomb, which was built at the end of the 18th century for Nanasipau'u, sister of the then reigning king. Many unfortunate commoners where offered to serve the princess in her afterlife. Not far south of the tomb is the 'Ahau Bathing Well, which in traditional Tongan society was owned by the chief. A little further south is a site, where a Lapita pottery, dating from 1000 BC, was excavated.

Accommodation is available on Lifuka. You can get to the island by air from Tongatapu and Vava'u, or with boat that stops on the island on its the Vava'u-Tongatapu run.
