Information and Services

The Tonga Visitors Bureau on Holopeka Road in the center of Pangai can provide brochures and good local advice.

Mariner's Cafe is pretty much the hub in Pangai for information, meals, drinks, televized sporting events, wi-fi, internet access, and so on.

The Westpac Bank changes foreign cash and traveler's checks but there is no ATM here.

The post office is in central Pangai. Yachties should report their arrival at the post office even if they've already checked in at Vava'u.

The TCC telephone exchange (open 24 hours) is near the Miraculous Cross on the small street behind the Visitors Bureau. They sell telephone cards which you can to place long-distance calls at the public phones outside.

Niu'ui Hospital is two km south of the wharf.


Ask around for dances in church halls on Friday and Saturday nights. You can drink kava all evening at several saloons around Pangai for a flat fee.
