Good Morning from Tonga

Tonga is just west of tyhe International Dateline . It is in fact the first island to welcome each new day. If you want a taste of the South Pacific of times gone by, this will be the spot . The island is charming , what it lacks in tourist infrastructure it , it makes up for in its friendly hospitality and uniqueness!

Unspoiled beaches

There are little islands off the coast of Tongatapu...easy to get away from...well I can't exactly say , from what!

Fafa Island

One of several Islands around the main island of Tongatapu...and easy ferry ride away.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:an unspoiled island kingdom with natural beauty and uniqueness
  • Cons:political unrest is brewing as we move through the millenium
  • In a nutshell:A look back at a South Pacific Island from a different time

    Nice to see a page on Tonga. We have quite a few Tongan's in Australia, so I know how big an eater they are!

    Nice page! The Tonga have unique customs that are interesting. The swimming pigs story was amusing--any particular reason they do that?

    A nice overview what to see and expect on the Tongan islands. I am pleased that the Int. Dateline Hotel is open on Sundays - as we will be there on a Sunday... Best wishes, Sissi
