Discover the special qualities of Tonga and its nature at the magnificent Oholei Beach Resort.

A panoramic drive through Nuku'alofa takes you along the western side of Tongatapu to see the Chief's Whistles -- widely considered the most spectacular blowholes in the entire South Pacific.

Next, you'll head to Oholei Beach. This is where you will find the Hina Cave, where a cultural show is held in your honor. Witness the traditional opening of the umu -- the traditional Tongan underground oven. The drum beats and the coconut shell is blown, signaling that you are cordially invited to lunch, where you will join in sampling the roasted suckling pig on a spit and fresh seasonal fruits.

Watch traditional Tongan dances from a culture that has remained virtually intact since Captain Cook's first visit to the Friendly Isles in the 1700s.

You'll have a chance afterwards (time permitting) to wander along the sandy coastline.

Notes:

Access to Oholei Beach is by a stairway with 60 steps. A car is available for guests that are not able to negotiate the steps. Restroom facilities are very basic. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring a hat, insect repellent, sunscreen and bottled water. Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, sunscreen and a hat. However, the beach may not be suitable for swimming due to rocks coral at low tide.
