Dive among brightly colored corals and try your luck with a fishing reel. Join a humpback whale-watching tour between June and November.

Explore Ha’apai, an area encompassing about 60 islands, where the famous 1789 mutiny occurred on the HMS Bounty. The Lulunga islands feature a stunning landscape of untouched beaches, sheer cliff faces, interesting coral rock and lush forests of tropical fruit trees. ‘Eua is a beautifully green island covered in rainforest and hiking trails.

Choose from a range of accommodation, from simple traditional huts to upscale resorts and hotels. Relax in a hammock to enjoy the sunset or watch local people weaving baskets and tapa cloth from mulberry bark. Join a traditional Tongan feast and enjoy regional dishes and ceremonial dancing. Sample delicious fresh seafood and try a little cup of kava to experience the local drink’s soothing effects.

Tonga is located in the South Pacific and can be reached by boat or by plane to Fua’amotu Airport on Tongatapu. Rent motorbikes, scooters and bicycles or catch taxis and buses on the larger islands. Domestic flights and charter boats connect the island groups. Tonga is primarily a Christian country, so remember to dress modestly unless at the beach and to organise ahead on Sundays, as most businesses close down for the day.
