You have to go considerably out of your way to wind up in tiny Tuvalu. This country of nine far-flung islands and atolls is one of the least-visited places in the South Pacific. It does have standard tropical scenery, with plenty of beaches, lagoons and palm trees. And traditional life on its more remote islands is largely untouched by the modern world. Still, we're not sure most travelers will feel that a journey to Tuvalu is worth the money it costs to get there.
Of those who do make it to Tuvalu, few have the means to venture beyond the capital, Funafuti, because the only practical way to visit the inhabited outlying islands is by private yacht: Local boat service is infrequent, and there are no functioning airstrips on any island other than Funafuti.
