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.
Visit Mapu'a 'a Vaea Blowholes and Ha'atafu Beach for some beach relaxation. Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Anahulu Cave - The Underground Swimming Pool. There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at Ha'amonga'a Maui Trilithon, get a taste of the local shopping with Talamahu Markets, don't miss a visit to Captain Cook's Landing Place, and take in the pleasant sights at Hufangalupe Natural Land Bridge.
