|My debut as a renter of scooters. In front of some of the blowholes in Tonga.|
|The blow holes along the south coast will keep you |
entertained for hours.
|Showing off on Keleti Beach. Quite a waste, really. |
There were no one else on this paradise stretch of sand.
|Keleti Beach. Empty. Amazingly enough.|
The beaches are pristine, do not assume that you have seen better before. I stumpled upon one, just down from Keleti International Resort. The owners are very friendly and will let you go through the resort garden to swim, although I'd certainly recommend you to stay there or to enjoy drinks in the bar with the view of a lifetime. The so called resort is of the very unpretentious sort, but with an incredible location! The beach, the sounds of the waves, the view and the remoteness must be experienced. Of course, when I say remoteness, that is a very relative term in little Tonga. In 15 minutes by scooter, you will be back in Nuku'alofa.
I will just let the photographs talk. I little advice is to not rule out Tonga if you are considering a trip to the Pacific. Or else, you are committing a crime against your own holiday memories.
