5.0
#4 of 7 in Parks in Alofi
Allegedly the place where Captain Cook first attempted landing on the island, Opaahi Landing today offers family-friendly activities in a natural setting. Put on your diving gear and hop in the clear, warm water in order to explore its lively world. You'll see a variety of colorful fish, shells, crabs, and even sea snakes. Those preferring to stay on land can explore sand pools during low tide--they're usually full of tiny creatures. Local fishers here will tell you about their work and the town.
