Tonga is firmly established on the tourist trail, which means getting from A to B is relatively easy. Be sure give yourself plenty of time to tour the numerous things to see and do this region offers. Take a trip to the Vava'u Harbor and Mt. Talau National Park in Neiafu, approximately 4 miles (6 kilometers) to the southwest of Otea.
Visitors searching for special places of quiet contemplation, will enjoy spending time in the area's churches. If you're searching for things to see that won't blow the budget, round up the family and head to Tonga's many outdoor cultural attractions such as open-air markets, gardens and farms.
When the weather is fine, head to Tonga's gorgeous waterways for a few hours of scuba diving or sailing. There can be times when one of the most effective ways to get a feel for a place is by tapping into the expertise of locals. The region offers some very informative guided nature walks.
At the end of your holiday in Otea, use the last of your pa’angas on last-minute souvenirs and say Nofo ā (farewell).
