Travel to Tuvalu

Once called the Ellice Islands, Tuvalu is an independent island country that lies about halfway between the US state of Hawaii and Australia.  It is one of the smaller island nations of the South Pacific, composed of just three reefs and 6 atolls. It’s also one of the least populated nations in the world, with a total census of just over 10,000 people.

Because Tuvalu is in such a remote location, tourism is not a point of emphasis. In 2010, fewer than 2,000 people visited the island nation. This makes it the perfect opportunity to enjoy a tropical getaway without a crush of people around you.

Many of the activities that are available in Tuvalu are centered around the Funafuti Conservation Area. It is within easy access of the airport on the main island, is closed to hotels, and will give you access to 33 square kilometers of reefs, lagoons, and channels. Six uninhabited islets are included with this area. Take a dive and you’ll get to swim with sea turtles, coconut crabs, and hundreds of additional species.

Because of a recent treaty signed with the European Union, traveling to Tuvalu from most of Europe is offered with visa-free access. Some exceptions do apply, but most travelers with a European passport can either receive a free visa upon arrival or not be required to have one at all. Those who are required to obtain a visa upon arrival are issued a maximum stay of 1 month.

Tuvalu may not be competitive with other islands with resort access, but you gain the benefit of having all the breathing space you need. That is why it is often considered the perfect holiday destination.
