One of the top attractions of the island without a doubt. Yet a small space at that, with just the arch and the standing stone. Beautiful nonetheless.

We went here with our Tongan family. It is a nice place for pictures to be taken and they did have a little market so you can buy things. There is a nice walk around area and the story behind this is fab.

As the name clearly indicates this three-stone structure evokes different feelings: of mystery and intrigue. Did they have religious connotations? Where did they come from and how - and when - were they erected? They are situated on the far eastern part of the island,...More

We were met by barbed wire fence and a padlock so could not enter the sight from the street. We would have liked a closer look but that was not to be.

Can easily be seen from the road (just pull up alongside). However, I am sure there is an interesting story to it, if only anyone could have been bothered to open up on a Monday. Yet another "no-one could be bothered" experience of Tonga tourism.

This is one of the places you should visit on the island; an enormous stone monument in a garden setting close to the sea. the tour guide will no doubt inform about the magic of the place! Please also walk down five minutes on the...More

The story behind this is interesting and we went with a guide who told us the story. I don't think it's worth going out of your way for although it is in a pleasant location. There are people selling nick nicks which I'm not really...More
