Reasons To Visit Tonga

The island nation of Tonga is the perfect destination to escape modern life and get in touch with nature with its stunning natural landscapes and peaceful atmosphere. The largest island in the country is Tongatapu which is home to the capital Nuku’alofa, a city offering much more than beaches and sunshine with its many fascinating heritage sites and vibrant cultural flavor. There are many adventurous things to do around the country such as trekking into the wilderness or going on a scuba diving trip off the coast, while those looking for a more relaxed trip can enjoy a meal at a beachfront restaurant or stay up all night at a local bar.

Arriving In Tonga

Fua’amotu International Airport is the main international airport serving Tonga located around 35 km from the capital Nuku’alofa. If you are looking to travel from the UAE to Tonga, there are no airlines currently providing direct flights from anywhere in the UAE. However, Fua’amotu International Airport has regular flights from Auckland International Airport and Sydney Airport which would allow UAE-based travelers to get to Tonga with only a single transfer.

At Fua’amotu International Airport you will find only the bare minimum when it comes to facilities and amenities, so bring everything essential you need with you in order to avoid disappointment. There are plenty of taxis available to take you where you need to go just outside of the airport, although you may also want to check with your hotel as many will provide their own private shuttle buses for guests.
