"The beautiful people of the Friendly Islands... where Times Begins"
The Kingdom of Tonga is an archipelago of 170+ islands (approximately 36 of which are inhabited), scattered over 700,000 square kilometres of ocean.
Located to the west of the International Dateline (South-East of Fiji and South of Somoa), Tonga is the first Pacific nation to greet the new day.
Tonga has dramatic & active volcanic landscapes, spectacular tropical rainforest, low-lying coral atolls, pristine coral reefs, magnificent sandy beaches and a unique and beautiful array of flora and fauna.
There is so much to see, do and experience when you visit Islands such as Tongatapu, Vava'u, Ha'apai and 'Eua.
Those seeking adventure can go scuba diving, snorkeling, whale watching, fishing, surfing, hiking, camping, kayaking, horse riding, sailing and much more.
In addition to all of the activities, travellers can simply enjoy the gentle pace of our Island lifestyle, observe our authentic and timeless culture, participate in our daily rituals and experience the generosity and hospitality of our people.
