The capital of Tonga and the seat of the island nation's royal family, Nuku'alofa was first seen by Western eyes in 1777, when legendary Captain James Cook arrived in the area. The bayside town has retained some of its historic architecture, so admiring old churches and palaces remains one of the most popular things to do in Nuku'alofa. If you get tired of gazing at old buildings, a range of pleasant beaches and nearby coral islands offer additional activities to fill up your days.

Most of these fall into the mid-range category and come in the form of large, modern hotels featuring swimming pools and onsite restaurants.
