Even with only 849 people, Niutao, with its own brand of unspoiled charm and beauty, has the distinction of being the most densely populated island in Tuvalu. Boat captains making the journey there should inquire locally about how best to approach the shore. Niutao is 350 kilometres northwest of Funafuti.
