The limestone islands they found weren't as diverse, nor as fertile as the volcanic ones they'd left, so they brought with them the domesticated animals and the food plants they would need. The Kingdom of Tonga is comprised of a number of island groups. The two most important are the Tongatapu group in the south and the Vava'u group in the north. Between them lies the Ha'apai group.

Neiafu, the administrative capitol of the Vava‘u Island Group, is one of Tonga’s principal ports. Rich, volcanic soils help make agriculture the primary economic activity in the islands, and products include copra, vanilla, and pumpkins.

You could easily drive around this sparkling island in half an hour if you hurry, but that’s the charm of the Cook Islands….. no one does. It has been almost 250 years since Captain Cook became the first European to discover these islands and yet there is a gentle timelessness that endures here. Come and discover the generous rhythm and warm hospitality of the Cook Islands for yourself.

Diving & Game Fishing There is superb diving in the islands north of Nuku'alofa. Two game-fishing charter companies also operate out of Nuku'alofa - Royal Sunset Fishing and Dive Tours and Blue Water Fishing Charters.

From the http://www.VideoSource.com Global Village Travel Guide and DVD, "Islands of the South Pacific". Stock footage available from http://videosource.com/search.html Transcript: One of the most universally recognized images of the South Pacific is the coconut palm. It's an excellent colonizer, capable of surviving long periods of time floating along until chance might have it bump into a patch of warm soil on which to root. The coconut is an indispensable ingredient in Polynesian life. Its milk provides a nourishing beverage. It is also dried into Copra for use in cooking oil and body oil. The coconuts are even used by children as flotation devices! But, most of all, it is the basis for almost every traditional dish in the Polynesian diet. Basic staple dishes include a concoction of Taro leaf, which is much like spinach when cooked, onion and corned beef. This is wrapped in a banana leaf and the coconut milk is added last. for dessert the mixture might be papaya slices and coconut milk. After wrapping, the bundles are placed in the pre-heated Umu or underground oven along with Taro root or yams. All families have Umus and they're used daily. When it is full the Umu is covered with banana leaves and old mats to keep in the heat. Several hours later the bundles are removed from the Umu and opened to reveal succulent, savory dishes. For special occasions, a very large umu may be used to bake an entire feast. The key to a successful umu is a tight seal which allows the food to be simultaneously steamed, smoked, baked, and bar-b-qued. The traditional serving plate -- a slice from a banana tree trunk-- is as recyclable as the pot that cooked the dishes. And, of course, the fingers can always be used again!

From the http://www.VideoSource.com Global Village Travel Guide and DVD, "Islands of the South Pacific". Stock footage available from http://videosource.com/search.html Transcript: Around 1000 B.C., when the Fijian islands could no longer support their growing populations the people looked eastward to what is today the Kingdom of Tonga. The limestone islands they found weren't as diverse, nor as fertile as the volcanic ones they'd left, so they brought with them the domesticated animals and the food plants they would need. The Kingdom of Tonga is comprised of a number of island groups. The two most important are the Tongatapu group in the south and the Vava'u group in the north. Between them lies the Ha'apai group. There are 170 islands in all, of which 40 are inhabited. The southern group is dominated by the island of Tongatapu which means "sacred Tonga" and is home to the king. The earliest inhabitants of these island established a hereditary monarchy. Over the years, the kingdom splintered and royal bloodlines multiplied, until, In 1845, the reins of power were once again gathered in the hands of one. In 1875, King George Tupou the 1st approved a constitution, and since that time, the country has had a constitutional monarchy. The pace of life is slow and easy in Nukalofa, the capital and only large town in all of Tonga. The streets and the market place reflect the quality of life of the Tongan people. Fresh, healthy food, a diet based on fish and a low stress level that results from close family ties, have all contributed to one of the longest life spans on the globe. Primary education has been mandatory since 1927 and King Tupou the 4th, the current monarch, was the first Tongan ever to graduate from college. Although the Tongan economy receives outside help from Britain and other countries, the land is fertile and most men own land to grow the family's staples such as taro root, many varieties of banana, yams, cassava root, various fruits -- and of course.. coconuts.

From the http://www.VideoSource.com Global Village Travel Guide and DVD, "Islands of the South Pacific". Stock footage available from http://videosource.com/search.html Transcript: 112 klms' north of TongaTapu is the VAVA'U Group. This set of 34 raised limestone isles, has a tremendous coastline with gorgeous white sand beaches and lots of hideaways to explore. The Tongans were visited by a great many Pacific explorers and were a popular port of call. Captain Cook called them the friendly isles. The town of Neiafu is a bustling marketplace on weekdays and Saturdays. But never on Sunday! It is actually against the law for a Tongan to engage in business of any kind on Sunday -- a prohibition laid down by the Christian missionaries who were among the first Westerners to settle here. Dancing and singing were such a strong element in Polynesian life that when Christianity denied them these forms of expression they redirected their energy to embrace Christian hymns.

Visit Neiafu (Vava'u), Tonga - Neiafu (Vava'u), Tonga Cruises - Neiafu (Vava'u), Tonga Tours Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube Vava’u is a group of more than 50 islands in Tonga, about 150 miles north of Tongatapu. They are either raised coral limestone or coral atolls. The beautiful harbour opposite the main town of Neiafu (known as the Port of Refuge Harbour) is a common destination for yachties sailing the South Pacific. The waters of the islands are known for their clarity, it being said that you can see the bottom at 40 metres. The area attracts many humpback whales between June and November and there are lots of companies organising tours to see them. There are numerous places to stay, to suit most budgets See Neiafu (Vava'u), Tonga ========================= Vanilla. Vava'u is a major production area for high quality vanilla and wandering around the countryside on the main island will give you a chance to see how the vanilla bean grows. The plant, a member of the orchid family, has a small cream or yellow flower which must be hand pollinated. The bean then takes nine months to grow, after which it is dried and cured, which develops the flavour and turns the pod dark brown or black. It is said to be the most labour-intensive agricultural product in the world. The value of individual beans means that farmers go to great lengths to protect them from theft, including pricking their individual code numbers on each bean with a pin. Mt. Talau National Park. This was established in 1995 to preserve one of the few remaining areas of relatively undisturbed native forest. It is located on the main island. The Park has several tree species that are endangered in Tonga. Most of the birds and reptiles native to Tonga can be found here. Mt. Talau is also important as a source of Tongan legends. The entrance is approximately 2 km from the center of Neiafu aand the trail is approximately 1km. ‘Ene’io Botanical Garden., Tu’anekivale village (on the east coast of the main island.), The garden aims to promote the survival of native and exotic species and also to provide a sanctuary for bird life. Conservation successes include tree ferns, sandalwood species, bamboos and breadfruit species. You can leave a permanent memory by planting your own tree. There is also a VisitorsCenter where you can see tapa and other artefacts being made and sample the traditional drink of kava. Lunch is provided (if booked in advance) on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. On Thursday evening there is a Tonga Feast. Do Neiafu (Vava'u), Tonga ============================ Walks. There are several good walks from Neiafu including the climb up Mt. Talau (131m-see above) which has excellent views over the harbor. Toafa Church on the west point of Vava'u has good views of the cliffs of Hunga island and other islands. Boat tours. Day trips around the islands are available from several companies for about T$50 per person. These tours visit Mariners Cave (which is accessible through an underwater tunnel), Swallows Cave (excellent for snorkelling) and one or two of the many secluded beaches around the Group. Vava'u Island Express offers day tours and snorkelling trips Diving. Visibility is excellent and the diving is great. Lots of dive sites, offering hard and soft corals, sea fan grottos, wall diving and magnificent caves. Equipment can be rented and diving tours arranged.

Vava'u is one of the most popular yacht cruising areas of the South Pacific. You can charter boats without provisioning or fully provisioned with a skipper and a cook. Short or long duration charters can be arranged. Whale Watching. From June to November humpback whales calve and mate in the calm waters. It is not only the sight that is fascinating: the male whales sing. Whale songs vary according to location: each year the song at each location changes. The effect of their singing on humans swimming with them is magical with the sound vibrating through your entire body. Whale watching excursions are available from Sailing Safaris , Endangered Encounters , Melinda Sea Adventures, which offers whale tours under sail , Whale Watch Vava'u and Vava'u Adventures , among others. Snorkelling. There are some great beaches throughout Vava'u. Snorkelling and reef viewing opportunities abound.Vava'u Island Express offers snorkelling trips Kayaking.

He competed in taekwondo in Rio.   The athlete's decision to go topless comes despite him warning earlier that he would not be displaying much skin while competing this time.In an interview with New Zealand Stuff the former flagbearer of the tiny Polynesian nation, 34, warned his adoring fans that he wanted to stay alive for his race.'It’s going to be freezing, so I will be keeping nice and warm,' he said.         In 2016 there was good news for millions of admirers of the athlete worldwide: the oiled up Tongan - at the time the first person from his country to represent it in Olympic Taekwondo - was single and looking for love.  A complete unknown until the Rio curtain raiser, it later emerged that he was a part-time model and worked with homeless children - only adding to his allure.  Taufatofua at the time lived in Brisbane, Australia, but chose to represent Tonga, an island nation with a population of 105,000, because that is where his father comes from.  Before Rio the athlete has failed to qualify for three previous Olympics occasions and suffered a slate of serious injuries, including six broken bones and three torn ligaments.But having finally made it, he was handed the honor of carrying the Tongan flag in the parade of nations wearing nothing but a ta'ovala, or Tongan mat.Taufatofua - the only athlete from his country competing in South Korea - said the oil was part of a tradition in Tongan culture to accentuate the athlete's power and sexual prowess.
