Tonga lies in the very heart of the South Pacific, and is one of the most scenic and unspoiled island nations of the Pacific.
Tonga's 176 islands range from high volcanic islands to low coral terrain that create scenic variety seldom matched elsewhere in the world. This is also one of only 2 places inthe world where you can go swimming with whales!
Nuku’alofa, the capital, is located on the main island of Tongatapu. It is more developed than its neighbors but still maintains an unhurried and peaceful lifestyle.
More than its natural history, Tonga is about its people and its traditional culture. Tongans are welcoming, warm and relaxed people. They enjoy the beach, collecting from the sea, singing, and dancing. Any occasion, big or small, can become a good reason for getting together to celebrate with friends and family.
