About Nukualofa

St. Anthonys photoNuku'alofa is capital and commercial centre of Tonga. It encompasses over one-third of the whole population ofTonga. The location of the Royal Palace called 'the Sia ko Veiongo (Veiongo Hill)' is located here.

Since the 1960s, the town has experienced rapid growth and has absorbed a number of surrounding villages. In 2006, riots in Nuku'alofa destroyed much of the town centre, but has mostly been rebuilt.

There is an international airport 20 minutes drive from Nuku'alofa with connections to other pacfic islands such as New Zealand, Cook Islands, Samoa, and Vava'u.

Fanga'uta Lagoon photoTransport in Nuku'alofa includes a bus service which has a reputation as being unreliable, taxis are considered a better option. Nuku'alofa harbour is the only deep-water harbour on the island, which determined its selection as the site for the capital. You can go by boat to smaller islands such as Atata, Fafa, and Pangaimotu islands, from the pier just outside Nuku'alofa's centre.
