Add To Plan

Enjoy a traditional Tongan feast at the beach, see a moving dance performance and then witness the natural phenomenon of the blowholes.

Depart from Vunu wharf and travel along the picturesque coastline, making a stop at the blowholes. Watching this natural phenomenon is spectacular, as the seawater funnels through natural tunnels cut in the rock, shooting upward in fountains as high as 60 feet. According to legend, the ancient Tongan chiefs would meditate here while listening to the crashing surf.

Continuing on, you will make your way to the Oholei Beach Resort for a traditional Tongan feast and dance performance. Similar to a Hawaiian luau, the meal centers around a suckling pig roasted in an underground oven called an "umu" and garnished with seasonal fruits. Other delicacies include fish in coconut cream and fresh vegetables prepared Tongan style. To announce that the feast is ready, a conch shell will be blown, accompanied by the distinctive beat of a lali drum. After your feast, enjoy a performance of traditional dances and music in Hina Cave and perhaps take a short stroll along the beach.

Returning to Nukú Alofa, you will pass through several villages, which will give you a greater understanding of daily life in Tonga.
