Nested in the South Pacific, the Kingdom of Tonga is ‘True South Pacific‘. It is the only remaining Constitutional Monarchy in the South Pacific and is a land of gorgeous sandy beaches, colorful coral reefs, and a rich Polynesian culture. The islands are also known as the Friendly Islands, the name given to them by Captain Cook because of the friendly reception he received.
Tonga is also one of the most scenic and unspoiled of the Pacific island nations. With over 170 islands, only 40 inhabited, Tonga is untouched and largely undiscovered. Un-spoilt by big resort complexes and modern development, Tonga remains as close to authentic Polynesia as you’ll find. In fact, with its sheltered beauty and cultural authenticity, the Kingdom of Tonga is often described as the ‘jewel in the pacific’.
