Nanumaga Island with an estimated population of 744 is a small island skirted by a lovely coral reef. Nanumaga is such a lovely island. If you plan to visit Nanumaga, read the 19th century book by Louis Becke, who lived in the main village of Tonga for a year. Though it was written over 100 years ago, it gives great insight into life on the island. Nanumaga is 425 kilometres northwest of Funafuti Island.
