Neiafu


The Tonga islands are flat and low as is Niue. But Tonga is an archipelago consisting of many islands. This is the lee side where the whales prefer to be.

This is Lofi, a local monger of handicraft and the first person we meet in Neiafu.

Neiafu is a small city with some 6000 inhabitants and rather much tourism, both backpackers and yachties.

Is Fredrik considering a night at Puataukanave International Hotel? First class one should think.

Damn! Where did we leave the boat?

Puh! Found it at last.

People in the Kingdom of Tonga are very religious. Mormons have a stronghold here.
A mixture of worship and commerce.


This rainbow so close that you could almost touch it.

Thank you for posting those beautiful photos of Neiafu, I never thought I will ever want to go back there because of the heat, looking at those photos just made me forget about the heat and want to dive into the beautiful sea!!!!!!!!!
