Located on the southern coast of the island of Fongafale in Tuvalu, the Tengako Causeway is an asphalted causeway separating the Pacific Ocean from the Te Namo Lagoon.
The causeway, also known as Funafuti Causeway, is 10.9 km long and was initially built by the Americans during World War II. The island was too narrow for a road, so they built this concrete section that they refer to as "the causeway".
The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed! The causeway is flooded regularly when the tide is high. This causeway is quite important for local traffic, because it connects the northern and southern part of the island. Waves often wash over this causeway. War relics can still be seen around the lagoon and other parts of the island.
