  • Tonga -- November 18 - 27, 2017: Tonga's beauty is known throughout the world. The wooded and often hilly coral islands are fringed with pristine white-sand beaches ideal for snorkeling, swimming, and sunbathing. Picturesque anchorages well protected from ocean swells are usually no more than a couple miles apart, but there's also clear water for South Pacific sailing at its best. The kingdom has a handful of resorts and restaurants on the islands as well as on Vava′u in the main town of Neiafu. Download a flyer...
