👍👍 GORGEOUS place!😍 Makes you feel so small next to the enormous 40 meter waves! Just don't go down to the water, it's dangerous and the rocks are extremely sharp. A must-see in Tonga!

Friends Cafe & Tourist Centre
👍👍 It’s the most beautiful cafe in Nuku’alofa. Food is great and the service is nice too! However I didn’t get to try the salmon sashimi - every time I went I was told fish is out of stock. Wish I could try it next time when I visit Tonga.

👍👍 This was by far the best food I had on this trip of four Islands in the Pacific. The catch of the day, Mahi mahi, was so fresh. This was some of the best seafood I've had in a long time. The tuna sashimi was delicious! Please check this place out when in Tonga.

👍👍 A bit tricky to find if you organise it yourself - the taxi driver needed guidance from the GPS and even then dropped me off at the wrong entrance, however once there I had an amazing experience.
