Nuku'alofa is the capital, chief port and largest city of Tonga. The city is located on the coast of Tongatapu island. It is the commercial, transport and social centre of Tonga, however there are few tourist attractions except for the Royal Palace, bustling market and a few shops.
The Royal Palace is in the heart of downtown. Although not open to the public, you get a good view of the colonial wooden building from the waterfront. Another attraction is the Royal Tombs, set in a manicured park which is closed to the public though visible through the fence. At the Centenary Church on Sunday you can see the King and Queen at worship.
