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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Mapu'a 'a Vaea Blowholes and Ha'atafu Beach. Go for a jaunt from Nuku'alofa to Haveluliku to see Anahulu Cave - The Underground Swimming Pool about 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, pause for some serene contemplation at Centenary Church, don't miss a visit to Kingdomkoffie, and pause for some photo ops at Ha'amonga'a Maui Trilithon.
