Planning your Family Holiday to Tonga


Not many families have Tonga on their places to visit, but if you're looking for quality time with your kids and love snorkelling, perhaps even amongst humpback whales, then adventure awaits.

Few accommodations in Tonga set themselves up as a family holiday destination and there are no resorts offering kids clubs or dedicated babysitting services. In fact, quite a few resorts exclude families altogether by having a no child policy. What Tonga does offer families is exceptional value for money with several small affordable resorts offering a relaxed atmosphere.

If you're after a simple beach holiday you can either stay on the main island of Tongatapu where you can visit the offshore islands on a day cruise nor visit Ha'apai which is very laid back and better for exploring. If you are looking for a little more adventure, Vava'u offers great snorkelling and the opportunity of swimming with humpback whales from late June / early July through to September and there are good cruises, game fishing, kayaking and snorkelling tours to enjoy..

The following are our recommended places to stay for a family holiday in Tonga and have room configurations available to sleep at least 2 adults and 2 children, or are available with interconnecting rooms.
