Fodor's Expert Review Royal Palace

Nuku'alofa Castle/Palace

The small Royal Palace, visible on the foreshore as ships come in, is easily the most visited spot on the island. It is closed to the public—despite the fact that King Taufa’ahau Tupou IV does not actually live in it—but ceremonial and traditional events often take place on its grounds and can easily be viewed.
