The Kingdom of Tonga, an archipelago of some 177 islands in the South Pacific, carries the nickname of "The Friendly Islands." This destination of your tropical-island dreams welcomes you with palm-lined beaches, some of the finest coral reefs in the world, and abundant opportunities for outdoor water adventures. Tonga's islands and islets have few inhabitants, and the best resorts in Tonga are concentrated in a handful of delightful locales; therefore, planning your vacation is easy.
Tonga's largest island is Tongatapu, home to the capital of Nuku'alofa and the widest selection of hotels in Tonga. This area is the place to go for family-friendly resorts and luxury hotels. Sights in Nuku'alofa include the Royal Palace of Tonga—a wooden palace built in 1867—royal tombs, and the central market where you can buy local arts and crafts. Other sights on the island include dramatic blowholes and rocky pools in the Southern regions. For more natural wonders, visit the ancient stone structures in the Eastern region. Plus, you'll find surf spots near luxurious Tonga resorts and spas on the Western coast. Nearby islands including Pangaimotu, Fafa, and Atata offer more fine beaches with opportunities for snorkeling, diving, sea kayaking, and whale watching. The latter is at its best from July through October, and Tonga is notable as one of the few places in the world where you can don a snorkel and slip into the water with humpback whales. A more rugged island just a ferry ride away from Tongatapu is Eua, a place where you can hike through the tropical rain forest and see dramatic cliffs and sinkholes. Last but not least, the Vava'u group of islands offers the best boat trips.
