Welcome to life in the slow lane. Here, time dances to the rhythms of the oceans and the sound of church bells on Sunday.

Be enchanted by the timelessness, the beauty and the cheerful island village welcome and enjoy the many activities Tonga extends.

Tongatapu is home to the nation's capital - Nuku'alofa, including the country's business and industrial centres and also the Royal Family.  Getting around Tongatapu is easy by Taxi (recognised by their "T" licence plates), or if you're in the heart of Nuku'alofa, everything is only a short walk away.

There’s no better way to immerse yourself in Tonga’s compelling mix of spectacular landscapes, pristine rainforests and azure waters than by taking full advantage of the Kingdom’s energetic menu of activities - and there is plenty for the adventurous traveller.

Kayaking is another Tongan staple, and the perfect way to access some of Tonga’s more hard-to-reach, remote beaches. Especially popular around the Ha’apai and Vava’u island groups, kayaking also presents a unique opportunity to get really up close and personal with Tonga’s amazing sea life, including dolphins, sea turtles and, of course, majestic humpback whales.

From manta rays, tuna and marlin to wahoo and whale sharks, Tonga also presents underwater thrills on a grand scale. With unpolluted waters and crystalline visibility up to 30 metres, the diving and snorkelling experiences on offer here must be seen to be believed.
