Dive Map of Tonga

Tongatapu is home to the capital - Nuku'alofa. This is the centre of Government and business and it is where the Royal Family lives. Its terrain is flat making it easy to explore the island by car, bike or foot. Most visitors arrive at Fua'amotu International Airport, about 15km South-East of Nuku'alofa.

Tongatapu is the hub of this island chain in western Polynesia. If you can't live without some sports, rugby is the game here. A little nightlife and low-key shopping; Tongatapu will help ease the transition to the rest of Tonga.

If it is a Sunday, a visit to church is a must to hear the voices of angels. Another thing not to be missed is The Royal Palace and The Royal Tombs and don't forget the markets - it is a hub of activity, particularly on a Saturday morning. If you need to unwind then go to one of the offshore islands and soak up the idyllic South Pacific atmosphere.

Or if you are interested in an adventure take a day trip or overnight trip to 'Eua and explore its rugged and wild natural beauty - a must for bush walkers and bird watchers.
