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.
Bring the kids along to Mapu'a 'a Vaea Blowholes and Ha'amonga'a Maui Trilithon. Step out of Nuku'alofa to go to Haveluliku and see Anahulu Cave - The Underground Swimming Pool, which is approximately 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: stroll through Ha'atafu Beach, pick up some local products at Talamahu Markets, make a trip to Royal Tombs, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of St Anthony of Padua.

To see maps, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, use the Nuku'alofa road trip planner.
