Nuku'alofa, Tonga

Over 170 islands compose the last monarchy in Polynesia. Tongatapu ("Sacred Garden") is the largest island in the realm, and Nuku'alofa is both its capital and its largest town. Never colonized by the West, Tonga remains one of the last expressions of pure Polynesian culture. Tonga also boasts magnificent white-sand beaches, stunning coral islets and the most spectacular blowholes in the Pacific.

Polynesians may have colonized Tonga as early as the 5th century B.C. The island boasts some of the most important archaeological sites in the Pacific.
