Lake Lalolalo is the most spectacular of the Wallis crater lakes. The eerie lake is an almost perfect circle with sheer rocky cliffs falling 30m (98ft) down to the inky, 80m (262ft) deep waters.
It's a big, flat jungle with a web of roads and not much in the way of attractive architecture or beaches. What makes this destination exceptional is its island-dotted, Eden-like lagoon where each islet offers a new experience.
Pierre Chanel Church
Near the quiet villages northwest of Futuna's airport is the famous, towering Pierre Chanel church (called Petelo Sanele in Futunan).
Remnants of a fortified Tongan settlement, developed in 1450 AD, the last stronghold of Tongans in Wallis. The settlement is surrounded by a massive stone wall with several entrances.
