The Kingdom of Tonga is the only sovereign kingdom among the islands of the South Pacific and also the only one to have successfully avoided formal colonisation. One hundred and sixty nine islands make up the archipelago that is Tonga, with only thirty six of them inhabited. The islands lie to the south of Samoa and north of New Zealand and are lush and verdant, covered with extensive coconut plantations.
The dramatic deep waters and near perfect year round climate of Sunsail’s sailing area make a Tonga bareboat yacht charter an outstanding sailing experience – a chance to relax and enjoy one of the world’s finest cruising areas.
You might find yourself sailing alongside humpback whales as you explore a seemingly endless number of beautiful lagoons and caves, or marvelling at giant underwater fern forests teeming with fascinating marine life. Stopping for a swim or a snorkel is a pleasure that you will want to indulge in over and over again because of the endless variety of tropical fish to admire.
Divers too will want to make the most of the crystal clear turquoise waters. A Sailing Holiday in Tonga, exploring this tropical paradise is one of those places that you will never want to leave.
Boasting some of the best and easiest cruising in the South Pacific, this exotic destination has something to offer both the novice and the more experienced sailor. Brightly coloured coral reefs attract snorkelers and divers, whilst the deep-water drop offs bring Humpback Whales. For those that enjoy dining out a Tongan beach feast is a must.
