The main island is Tongatapu and English is widely spoken by the friendly locals. All the activities here are relaxed like the island and a lot are great for nature lovers. Diving, fishing, sailing, kite boarding, snorkelling and lazing on the beach are amongst the most popular.

Divers can expect to be thrilled by a huge array of marine life such as sea turtles, manta rays, tuna, marlin and wahoo combining with even bigger creatures like whale sharks and humpback whales.

 The Volcanic origins of Tonga has created a dramatic underwater topography and divers can enjoy a range of caves, caverns, overhangs, lava tubes, drop offs and swimthroughs this volcanic activity has created.
