How to Get Around Tonga in 3 Days

Although we give you some transport tips within the itinerary, here’s a quick overview of how to get around Tonga on your honeymoon weekend.

Road Transport in Tonga

Tongatapu is well-connected with roads, with car rentals, taxis, buses, airport transfers and guided tours available. While resort transfers are usually the easiest and best-value option for getting between the airport and resort, renting a car or taking a guided tour are good ways of getting around Tongatapu to see the sights. See guided tours in Tongatapu here or car rental comparisons in Tongatapu here.

Overwater Transport in Tonga

Any overwater transport you’ll need during a three-day trip will likely be to get to an island resort or as part of a boat tour. Most bout tours and boat transfers to the outer island resorts depart from Faua Wharf in Nuku’alofa. Boat transfers can be arranged with selected resorts, like Fafa Island Resort, while other resort boat transfers run on a schedule, usually to connect with incoming flights.

Day 1 – Tongatapu

Travel time: 30-50 minutes airport transfer

Your honeymoon in Tonga begins! We recommend staying in one of the glorious resorts on Tongatapu’s western beaches or outer islands, providing a more idyllic and natural setting than what can be found in Nuku’alofa.

From Fua’amotu Airport, your resort transfer will be waiting if arranged or taxis are available to take you to where you need to go. If staying at one of the outer islands, boat transfers will be available from Faua Wharf in Nuku’alofa.

Settle into your fale (beach hut) and enjoy a romantic meal at your resort’s restaurant. You might catch a Tongan cultural performance and feast or enjoy something more intimate from your fale’s private verandah. Either way, you’ll be fuelled for a day of adventure tomorrow.

Day 2 – Explore Tongatapu

Your one and only full day in Tonga is brimming with possibilities. How about renting a car or taking a tour to explore the island together, delving into hidden caves with pools or finding yourselves alone on one of Tongatapu’s beaches? You could also “buddy-up” for a scuba diving excursion or share a once-in-a-lifetime experience swimming with whales (available between June and October)! Enjoy Tonga your way, by getting inspiration from the list below.

Day 3 – Resort to Fua’amotu International Airport

Travel time: 30-50-minutes airport transfer

This is when you realise that you should have spent much more time in Tonga! If your flight out of Tonga is in the evening, do some of the activities you might have missed out on yesterday. Otherwise, treat yourself to an indulgent breakfast at your resort or in Nuku’alofa’s Friends Cafe before you get a transfer with your resort to Fua’amotu International Airport. It’s time to fly toward the rest of your lives together…
