Things to Do in Tonga

Tonga, the "Friendly Islands", is an archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean. The country is divided into four island groups, or regions.

Tongatapu -- home of the capital, Nuku'alofa. A short flight or a boat trip to the east-southeast is the unspoiled island of 'Eua.

Ha'apai -- the least populated group.

Vava'u -- a popular yachting destination.

The Niuas are remote islands to the north of Tonga. Niuafo’ou, Niuatoputapu, and Tafahi are collectively known as the “Niuas”.

Tonga has an economy with none of the corporate chain stores and with local small businesses providing all necessary goods and services. Tourists were not a target during the riots and you will find Tonga a friendly and appealing place to visit although don't expect the same level of infrastructure as in more developed countries. Rebuilding after the riots in Nuku'alofa has been more or less completed and there are abundant tourism facilities.
