Tonga is also known as “The Friendly Islands” because of its peoples’ consistently warm welcoming of travelers. This Pacific island is historically unique as it is the only island nation in the region to have never been officially colonized. You will, however, still experience a heavily British influence in the area when you visit. Tonga encompasses an island archipelago of 176 islands about a third of which are populated. One place to consider is the Ha’atafu Beach Resort on Tongatapu Island, where most of the fales (beach huts) are close to the beach. There are many other options as well. If you are looking for a honeymoon hosted by genuinely amicable people with good food and plenty of water sports to be experienced, Tonga is the place to be.
