As the Kingdom of Tonga's largest island and capital, Nuku’alofa is the hub of city life, with Tonga's greatest concentration of hotels, restaurants, and nightlife. It is also the seat of Tonga's government and the island's historic center, where you'll find the royal palace, the government and business districts, as well as churches, the colorful Central Market, and ancient vestiges of the island's storied past. As Tonga's only deep-water port, Nuku'alofa is also its hub for boat rides and excursions to the many outer islands.
