Whether you're relaxing on a private island, spending time with your kids at family friendly accommodation or catching world-class waves with your surfing buddies, at all times your holiday will feel refreshingly real.

How much will it cost

Tonga is a cost-effective place for a vacation. Accommodation ranges from low-cost backpacker guest houses to hotels and resorts. In the markets and shops, local fruit and vegetables are generally cheaper than at home, while imported goods are more expensive. Eating options range from inexpensive snack bars to a la carte restaurants in Nuku'alofa. The Tongan currency is the pa'anga (TOP, PT or T$).
