Oceanic archipelago. South Pacific paradise. Tonga’s islands are a picture of perfection, as multi-hued mountains slope down onto spotless, sandy shores.
Tongatapu, Tonga’s largest island, is surrounded by coral reefs and home to the capital of Nuku'alofa. Aside from the pristine beaches and superb snorkelling spots, you can also explore ancient tombs and witness coastal blowholes. Kayaking is one of the most popular water sports on Tonga, with full-day excursions and island hopping adventures from local operators. Located just over 17 km southeast of Tongatapu is ‘Eua – one of the oldest islands in the Pacific, home to a trek-friendly tropical rainforest and beautiful beaches on its western side. Most accommodation can be found easily in Nuku'alofa, with a range of beachfront hotels, resorts and B&Bs available.
