The capital of Tonga and the seat of the island nation's royal family, Nuku'alofa was first seen by Western eyes in 1777, when legendary Captain James Cook arrived in the area.
Get outdoors at Mapu'a 'a Vaea Blowholes and Scuba & Snorkeling. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Ha'atafu Beach, don't miss a visit to Royal Tombs, explore and take pictures at 3 Headed Coconut, and pause for some serene contemplation at Free Church of Tonga.
