On 28 April 1789, a huge British Royal Navy ship dropped anchor right between the volcanic islands of Kao and Tofua, both of which can be seen from Sandy Beach Resort on clear days. The ship was the HMS Bounty and this is where the mutiny led by Christian Fletcher against his captain William Bligh took place.
