Sacred South

The starting point for most visitors touring Tonga, Tongatapu Island contains the national capital Nuku'alofa and more than two-thirds of the country's population. Although plenty of tourists do little more than pass through, Tongatapu Island vacations offer plenty in terms of nature and culture. Explore the countryside for a taste of traditional Tongan life, wandering through the multitude of quiet towns and expansive plantations along the way. Churches dot the landscape, an indicator of the island's strong religious dedication. Accented by powerful ocean blowholes and rocky cliffs, the rugged coastline's occassional beaches offer perfect spots for some rewarding beach activities. History also abounds in the form of mystical stone structures, dating back to the 11th century. Consider also delving into the capital's busy produce and flea markets, where you can pick up souvenirs and try street foods. Plan your trip to Tongatapu Island and other Tonga destinations using our handy Tonga trip itinerary builder.
