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.

Please note: This tour includes a minimal amount of walking, mainly at the guests' discretion at the Liku'Alofa Beach Resort. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; swimwear; sun cap; sunglasses; sun screen and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Bikinis and bare chests are inappropriate at all sites other than the beach at Liku'Alofa. Guests must be over the age of 18 to consume alcohol. The buses do not have A/C or microphones.
