When to Visit + The Cheapest Time to Visit Tonga

Tonga is a tropical country and experiences warm temperatures throughout the year. It has two distinct seasons, a dry season that is drier and cooler, and a wet season that is hot and humid. Learn much more about the weather and climate by month in our guide to the Tonga Weather, Seasons & Climate + Tonga Weather by Month.

Dry Season (May to October)

The dry season is also known as the winter season in Tonga, although many would not describe it as winter with temperatures around 19-29°C (66-84°F). The rainfall per month is an average of 110 mm (3.9 in). The dry season is also the time for whale swimming and the clearest visibility for scuba diving.

Wet Season (November to April)

The wet season is hotter and more humid, with temperatures around 23-31°C (74-88°F) and an average monthly rainfall of 210 mm (8.3 in). This is also Tonga’s cyclone season, which means there’s a risk of cyclones (but only a risk).

The Cheapest Time to Visit Tonga

The cheapest time to visit Tonga is during its wet season, but avoiding the December and early January holiday season, so between mid-January and April.

So when is the best time to travel to Tonga? Check out our complete guide, The Best Time to Visit Tonga, which dives deeper into the subject.

What to Pack for Tonga

The main thing you need to keep in mind when packing for Tonga is to have a tropical wardrobe that includes some more modest items of clothing for exploring Tonga’s towns and villages. A packing list for Tonga might look a little something like this:

  • 1 or 2 Light sleepwear if you’re against sleeping in your undies

Health Products

With questionable drinking water, high UV levels and the presence of mosquitos, certain health products are essential to take to Tonga. Tonga also has a fragile marine ecosystem so natural sunscreens and repellents are a must, while reusable water purification bottles are preferable to buying bottled water for obvious environmental reasons. See our health essentials packing list in What Medication to Pack in Your First Aid Kit for Tonga, as well as tips for protecting the health of the environment in the 30 Ways to Travel More Sustainably in Tonga.


The currency in Tonga is Tongan Pa’anga. You will need to be prepared to get by on cash for much of your stay as this is often the only payment method accepted. There are ATMs in the four main towns of Tonga. Get more money tips in What is The Best Way to Pay in Tonga?

Do You Need a Visa to Visit Tonga?

For citizens of around 70 different countries, the answer is no. You just need to arrive in Tonga with a valid passport. Citizens not of visa-exempt countries will need an Entry Permit.

How Long to Spend in Tonga

Tonga might make for an idyllic boutique resort getaway to simply relax for a few days  – and that’s fine; we all need to R&R from time to time. Most travellers, however, are here to explore and experience some of the most dramatic culture and wildlife experiences in the South Pacific. With that in mind, here’s what you can achieve in certain timeframes… (And don’t worry, we’ll get onto the destinations in the next few sections).

3 Days / A Long Weekend in Tonga

Over a long weekend, you have enough time to see the highlights of Tongatapu. Check out the Tonga Budget & Backpacking Itinerary: 3 Days for an example itinerary.

5 Days in Tonga

Start by exploring Tongatapu, then head to one of the outer islands, such as the nearby ‘Eua, for a couple of days. See the Tonga Budget & Backpacking Itinerary: 5 Days for an awesome trip idea.

7 Days / 1 Week in Tonga

Visit two island groups to experience two sides of Tonga. Flights and ferries connect the main four groups on a regular basis so take your pick! Get some inspiration on what to do and where to go from our Tonga Budget & Backpacking Itinerary: 7 Days / One Week.

Which Islands to Visit: Budget Travel on Tongatapu

Tongatapu might be the main arrival island of Tonga, which has the bonus of being the cheapest island to get to, but there’s much more to it than that. Tongatapu is home to a wide array of free and cheap attractions, whether it’s the natural wonders of ‘Anahulu Cave, Mapua ‘a Vaea Blowholes or the Flying Foxes of Kolovai or historic sites like the Ha’amonga ‘a Maui Trilithon, Royal Tombs or the Abel Tasman Landing Site.

A good base for budget travellers is Nuku’alofa, the capital of Tonga, which has a wide variety of budget accommodations, eateries and supermarkets should you be self-catering. From here, you can hire a car, take the bus or jump on a tour to explore the island.

Learn more about a backpacking trip to Tongatapu and the capital in The Guide to Tongatapu on a Budget and The Guide to Nuku’alofa on a Budget.

Which Islands to Visit: Budget Travel on ‘Eua

As if it were made for backpackers, ‘Eua is an island exclusively of budget accommodations and an excellent choice of free and cheap experiences. The island sits less than 20 km (11 mi) southeast of Tongatapu, taking half a day to ferry there. It’s Tonga’s oldest island, which has weathered some interesting natural features over millions of years, from natural arches to sinkholes to giant banyan trees.

For budget travellers, hiking is a good way to explore the island, especially in the ‘Eua National Park where you can look out for the red shining parrot, pass impressive sinkholes, and venture to stunning island lookouts.

That’s not to say that the must-dos in Tonga aren’t available in ‘Eua, as it has the longest-running whale season in Tonga for whale swimming. The island’s retreats also specialise in freediving and spearfishing, while the villages offer effortless cultural immersion.

Learn more about ‘Eua in The Guide to ‘Eua on a Budget.

Which Islands to Visit: Budget Travel in Ha’apai

Although getting to this central island group in Tonga is a little more expensive than Tongatapu and ‘Eua, Ha’apai is a must-visit for budget travellers seeking sun, sea and sand. There are 62 islands in the island group, most of which are uninhabited including Uoleva Island which has a budget resort for travellers to get the “Robinson Crusoe” experience. Alternatively, guesthouses in the main town, Pangai, make for a good base to explore the island of Lifuka, its stunning sweeping sandy beaches and historical sites.

Stay at any of the waterfront accommodations in Ha’apai and you’ll spend your days snorkelling and kayaking for free. Otherwise, some resorts offer complimentary bike hire to explore the flat islands of Lifuka and Foa.

Those big-ticket activities like whale swimming, scuba diving and fishing are also available from Ha’apai, so you have some leftover budget to treat yourself with.

Dive further into planning a budget trip to Ha’apai with The Guide to Ha’apai on a Budget.

Which Islands to Visit: Budget Travel in Vava’u

This northern island group in Tonga might be a little more expensive to get to, but it offers some of the top snorkelling spots, dive sites, sailing grounds, and fishing grounds in Tonga. Not that budget travellers will want to fork out too much on all of these activities, but they are certainly there to tempt you!

Alternatively in Vava’u, budget travellers can enjoy snorkelling tours to Swallows Cave, hike to Mt Talau from Neiafu or learn about some interesting tropical flora at the ‘Ene’io Botanical Garden.

The main town, Neiafu, has plenty of budget accommodations, as well as interesting sights like the local market on the waterfront and the historical Pouono Park. There are a couple of budget resorts in the island group too, such as the Beautiful Ofu Island Backpackers, where you can get that resort experience with kayaking and cultural shows for a more affordable price.

Learn more about visiting Vava’u in The Guide to Vava’u on a Budget.

How to Get Around Tonga on a Budget

Tonga might not have an overwhelming number of island groups but the distance between each is quite substantial with around 180 km (110 mi) between Tongatapu and Ha’apai and 130 km (80 mi) between Ha’apai and Vava’u. Not to mention, Tonga’s larger islands are well worth exploring in their own right. So how do you get around Tonga?

Domestic Flights

To get between island groups, flights operate daily except Sundays. They are the fastest and most comfortable way to get between islands, so naturally, the most expensive option. Learn more about flying between the island groups in The Guide to Domestic Flights in Tonga and see prices in How Much Does it Cost to Fly in Tonga?

Interisland Ferries

Cargo-style boats and barge ferries travel between Tongatapu, ‘Eua, Ha’apai and Vava’u several times a week. They are cheaper than flying but trips can last several hours. See The Guide to Travelling in Tonga by Ferry to learn much more about this transport method and see prices in How Much Do Ferries Cost in Tonga?

Car Rental

Car rental is readily available in Tongatapu and Vava’u, but a little harder to find in ‘Eua and Ha’apai unless you know where to look. Find out everything you need to know about hiring in What You Need to Hire a Car in Tonga. Plus, get some money-saving advice from our 10 Ways to Save Money on Car Rental in Tonga.

Bicycle Rental

Exploring Tonga’s relatively flat islands at a more natural pace is a fun way to get around. Bicycle rentals are available in Tongatapu and Vava’u, while some resorts in Ha’apai offer complimentary bike hire for guests. Find out more about getting your peddle on in The Guide to Cycling in Tonga.


Taxis are available in Tongatapu and Vava’u. Ask for the going rate, as many don’t use meters. See The Guide to Taxis in Tonga for more tips and Taxi Prices in Tonga: The Costs You Need to Know for fares.


Buses are ultra-cheap, providing a local experience to get around Tongatapu. We have a guide for that too, in How to Travel Around Tonga By Bus, as well as prices in How Much Does it Cost to Travel Tonga by Bus?


Hitchhiking is legal in Tonga. However, it is one of the least reliable forms of transport because you’re likely to get a few rides to get anywhere far. Nevertheless, it’s quite the adventure if you can make it work! Learn more about hitchhiking in A Travellers’ Guide to Hitchhiking in Tonga.

There are a lot more ways to travel around Tonga between resort transfers, guided tours, bicycle rental and even multi-day kayaking tours so be sure to browse our Tonga Transport Guide: 15 Ways to Get Around Tonga for more advice.
