Destinations Visited in Our Tonga Itineraries for 14 Days

Tonga is an island nation made up of 169 islands. Let us break things down to the main destinations and island groups that you will visit in these Tonga itineraries for two weeks.


Tongatapu is often described as the “main island” of Tonga and is the arrival island of most tourists through Fua’amotu International Airport. Most of Tongatapu’s tourism is centred in the capital, Nuku’alofa, although a small selection of treehouse and beach resorts can be found on the island’s eastern side. Find out more about these destinations in The Complete Guide to Tongatapu and The Complete Guide to Nuku’alofa.


‘Eua is an island less than 20 km (around 11 mi) southeast of Tongatapu and is Tonga’s oldest island. It is one of Tonga’s more “rugged” islands with weathered coastal formations split by endearing beaches. The island is a must for nature lovers, being home to the ‘Eua National Park, as well as those looking to effortlessly immerse in village life. Find out more about ‘Eua in The Complete Guide to ‘Eua.


Ha’apai is the central island group of Tonga, made up of 62 islands – 45 of which are uninhabited. It’s where you’ll find white sand beaches leading into tranquil lagoons and islands of swaying palm trees. Ha’apai is relatively undeveloped but still has a good selection of eco-friendly beach resorts, as well as guesthouses in the island’s main village, Pangai. Learn more in The Complete Guide to Ha’apai.


Vava’u is the second-most northern island group of Tonga and home to Neiafu, which becomes a bustling centre for tourism, especially during the whale season. The main island, ‘Utu Vava’u, is connected to various islands via causeways, while the rest of the 50+ islands of the group are compactly scattered across the archipelago. Learn more about Vava’u in The Complete Guide to Vava’u.

Another island group of Tonga is The Niuas, three islands far-flung in the northern reaches of Tonga. Due to the distance therefore infrequent flights and ferries, getting to this island group on a two-week trip is not generally advised.

Tonga Luxury Itinerary for 2 Weeks

Tonga is off the radar of most luxury travellers, but that’s the beauty of it.

Tonga Adults-Only Itinerary for 2 Weeks

The “adults-only getaway” is becoming quite the trend in the South Pacific. With Tonga being less visited than some other South Pacific islands, you’ll find that it’s tranquil enough without the need for an array of adult-only resorts – even in the high season!

Regardless, a few adult-only accommodations are starting to crop up in Tongatapu, Ha’apai and Vava’u, so we’ve been sure to add these destinations to the Tonga Adults-Only Itinerary: 14 Days. The island of ‘Eua is one of the less-visited areas of Tonga, so while they don’t have adults-only resorts, you can still experience the joys and peace of a child-free getaway in these destinations.
