Tongatapu

Things to do - general

Tongatapu is the main island of the Kingdom of Tonga and known as the ‘Sacred South’. Expect a warm welcome at one of the world’s most easy-going international airports before journeying north across the island to the Tongan capital of Nuku’alofa. The harbour-side town is the center of Tongan commerce and government and also the residence of the Royal Family in the South Pacific’s only monarchy. Around 70,000 people live on Tongatapu, and Nuku’alofa – ‘Abode of Love’ – is a vibrant introduction to the Kingdom.

Tongatapu has a rather cooler climate than the rest of the Tonga as it is the southernmost group of islands in the country. Because of this, fruit production is lower in Tongatapu than it is in the warmer islands in the north.

Languages spokenTongan and English are the main languages used
Currency usedTongan Paanga (TOP)

Nightlife info

Every Wednesday and Friday night, the Tonga resorts have live entertainment. A variety of music, singing, dancing, and a kava ceremony are part of the package. The staff, sometimes accompanied by Tongans from the villages, present lovely and most importantly, authentic songs called hiva, and dances.Nightlife image

Culture and history info

The importance of family Tongan society is guided by four core values, all of which combine to ensure a genuine welcome of visitors to the Kingdom of Tonga. The four core values are Feka'apa'apa'aki (mutual respect), Fevetokai'aki (sharing and fulfillment of mutual obligations), Lototoo (humility and generosity) and Tauhi vaha'a ( Loyalty and commitment) Family is the central unit of Tongan life. Older people command the most respect and each family member knows their role. A typical family unit may consist of adopted children, cousins, alongside siblings and grandparents. Their respect for family is a reflection of the people's love of the Tongan Royal Family.Culture and history image
