It's all about natural beauty on this excursion to some of Tonga's most unusual attractions, followed by a relaxing trip to the beach.
Your tour begins with a drive west, passing through scenic villages and thriving plantations in the countryside. Coconuts are one of the most important crops in Tonga, as you will discover at the Liahona Mormon Coconut Plantation. One of the most unusual sights here is the coconut tree with three separate heads, a botanical rarity.
Not far away, you will also witness Tonga's blowholes, where the rushing seawater funnels through natural tunnels cut in the rock, shooting upward in fountains as high as 60 feet. It's said that the ancient Tongan chiefs would meditate here while listening to the crashing surf.
One last uncommon sight awaits you in Kolovai, where you will see hundreds of flying foxes clinging to the casuarina trees. The foxes, which are really bats with fox-like heads, live in large communal groups and primarily feed on fruit at night.
Your final stop is at the Liku'Alofa Beach Resort where you will enjoy approximately 1-hour relaxing in the resort's idyllic setting. This beautiful location offers up tropical gardens, shaded by coconut trees that rim the pristine beach. For your entertainment, local dancers will perform a traditional show and refreshments will be served.
Following your time at Liku'Alofa, you will rejoin your coach and return to the pier.
