    Stop At: Royal Palace, Vaha'Akolo Rd, Nuku'alofa, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    The wooden Palace, which was built in 1867, is the official residence of the King of Tonga. It is not open to the public but we you can get a photo in front of the palace gate and if you are lucky, you may even get a glimpse of the King & Queen!

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Royal Tombs, Laifone Rd, Nuku'alofa, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    The Royal Tombs have been the resting place of the royals since 1893. The statue-studded white concrete tomb complex is off limits to the public, but you can peer across the lawns from the perimeter fence.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Captain Cook's Landing Place, Taufa'ahau Road, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    A small monument marks the spot where Captain Cook first landed back in 1777. He dubbed Tonga the "Friendly Islands" because of the warm welcome he received from the locals, however he did not know they actually had a plot to kill him!

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Ancient Royal Tombs of Lapaha, Mua, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    Don't underestimate this amazing sight! The langis are platforms of earth with a stepped pyramid effect supported by stone slabs as surrounding walls. The vaults and the construction were enormous and highly engineering feat that the people of Tonga achieved at a time the Tongan empire was at its peak.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Tongatapu Island, Tongatapu Island

    Fishing Pigs*
    When the tide is out, these unusual porkers trot out into the shallows and snuffle around in search of seafood. Not something you see every day! Of course we can't guarantee you will see the Pigs fishing, it all depends on the tide & the pigs!

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Ha'amonga'a Maui Trilithon, Lapaha, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    See Ha’amonga, Tonga’s very own Stonehenge and learn about its mysterious origins. Constructed from three huge 40 tonne coral limestone slabs, why it was built and how it was built - no-one really knows. It sits in front of 3 paths that lead to the beach which act as a Solstice Calendar, depending on which path you see the sun rise through tells you if it's the shortest or longest day of the year! Pretty amazing and pretty mysterious ancient sight!

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Hufangalupe Natural Land Bridge, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    This sight surely shows off Mother Nature in all her glory. The Natural Land bridge was formed by the collapse of the roof a sea cave and watching the waves crashing below is incredible and rock formations are picturesque. Your guide will assist you to get down to a great viewing spot that is safe. It can be a little slippery so good shoes are suggested.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: 3 Headed Coconut, Loto Rd Matahau, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    Next we will stop at the famously rare 3-headed coconut tree. A freak of nature and not reported to be found anywhere else in the world!

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Mapu'a 'a Vaea Blowholes, Houma Corner Of Salote Rd And One Way Rd., Tongatapu Island Tonga

    Watch Mother Nature shows off at the mighty blow holes! As waves crash into the reef, natural channels in the rock allow water to forcefully blow through and create an amazing sound and sight. Watch comfortably from the viewing platform and maybe even get a little ocean spray shower!

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Tsunami Rock, Unnamed Road, Kala'au, Tonga

    Next we visit Tsunami rock, also known as "Maka Sio'ata. With its mysterious and forbidding name, the giant three-story boulder sits just off a tiny and beautiful beach on the western side of Tongatapu - and no one knows exactly how it got there. Researchers believe the ancient wave may have hit the island's shore sometime within the past 7,000 years, after the melting of the most recent ice age brought sea levels to roughly where they are today!

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Ha'atafu Beach, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    A sandy slice of paradise, Tonga's best and most gorgeous beach. We will stop here for a quick swim tide & time permitting.

    Duration: 30 minutes
