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.
Relax by the water at Mapu'a 'a Vaea Blowholes and Ha'atafu Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Anahulu Cave - The Underground Swimming Pool. The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Centenary Church, delve into the mystery of 3 Headed Coconut, make a trip to Royal Tombs, and steep yourself in history at Captain Cook's Landing Place.
