Faleloa is situated 110 miles (177 kilometers) northeast of Nuku Alofa, the national capital.
When it comes to getting the best bang for your buck from your holidays, it's worth remembering that Faleloa is merely the tip of the iceberg; Tonga is dotted with natural sights, cities and towns.
Religion is a pivotal element of every region's make-up, so set aside some time to visit the area's many churches and other places of worship. If you ask a local their sightseeing recommendations, more often than not they'll point to the region's gardens, open-air markets and farms.
If you're are lucky to have good weather during your stay, try some of the local water activities. Sea kayaking and scuba diving are two local options. If you like to go slow while you are on holiday, Tonga has some good relaxing activities for you, such as sunbathing and bird watching.
If you really want to understand the area in which you are traveling, make sure you stop in at the region's bars, cafés and restaurants. These are excellent places to meet local residents and try common dishes. Regular ingredients in this part of the world are rice and taro. No trip to Tonga is complete without trying lu (beef and coconut wrapped in taro leaves) or feke (grilled ocotpus/squid). Fresh fruit, is the perfect way to finish your meal. If you are after a non-alcoholic beverage, enjoy coffee.
When you have to pack your suitcase and say "Nofo ā ", you'll have loads of memories you'll cherish forever.
