    Stop At: Ancient Royal Tombs of Lapaha, Mua, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    Stop At: Tongatapu Island, Tongatapu Island

    Fishing Pigs*
    When the tide is out, these unusual porkers trot out into the shallows and snuffle around in search of seafood. Not something you see every day! Of course we can't guarantee you will see the Pigs fishing, it all depends on the tide & the pigs!

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Ha'amonga'a Maui Trilithon, Lapaha, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    Lastly we will stop off for a visit to the Ha’amonga, Known as the Stonehenge of the south pacific the mysterious Ha'amonga was erected in 1200AD. It consists of two upright coral stones about 5m high, topped by a horizontal connecting stone 6m long and has 3 paths that lead to the beach. When the sunrises in the middle path the day is equal. If it rises on the left path, it’s the shortest day of the year and the right path is the longest day of the year.


    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Hufangalupe Natural Land Bridge, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    Formed by the collapse of the roof a sea cave, its the perfect place to watch the waves break dramatically near the entrance. The ancient locals believe that Maui threw his spear through making a large hole in the Earth. There are not fences here and it can be hard to get to after we have had wet weather, so we can't guarantee that we can stop here. A short walk on uneven ground is required to get to the sight from the car.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: 3 Headed Coconut, Loto Rd Matahau, Tongatapu Island Tonga

    Not just another Coconut tree, this one has 3 heads and is apparently the only one in the world! Stop here for a quick photo!

    Stop At: Mapu'a 'a Vaea Blowholes, Houma Corner Of Salote Rd And One Way Rd., Tongatapu Island Tonga

    See the most spectacular blowholes! Here you'll find not one blowhole, but hundreds of them along this three mile stretch of wild windswept coastline. Watch from the safety of the viewing platform. This is also a great spot to enjoy your tasty packed lunch as you enjoy Mother Nature showing off her mighty power.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Tongatapu Island, Tongatapu Island

    Tsunami rock
    Science says, this huge Coral boulder was thrown inland thousands of years ago by a prehistoric Tsunami. Local legend say's the Demi God Maui threw the giant rock down to kill an annoying Rooster. Tongan Roosters crow all day and night so the Maui theary does have merit!
