The Island is predominatly lime stone, and so has an abundance of caves, and caverns, which are great fun to explore and clamber about and swim in.
For visitng boats there are moorings outside the town, but no anchorages at all. In fact there is only one place to land a boat, and even then the tender has to be hauled onto the warf by crane.
We only stayed one night, as the breeze veered north just after we arrived and then west, making the Alofi bay extremely uncofortable, and a lee shore to boot. Not such a bad thing in the end as we were headed due east to Rarotonga which is usually upwind. We were on our way, under kite by 10am the next morning.
