Very nice place for pictures, nothing really special as we have seen many rock formations. Some local vendors selling crafts out there. Again be careful, these people know what they are doing, I really wonder if they are all hand made.

As I have said before, there are not too may interesting sightseeing locations in Tonga, but you should add this to your itinerary. You only need about 15 minutes to look around, but worth stopping for.

Tongan version of Stonehenge. Pretty cool for when you think about how on earth did they get them there as well as the one on top.

This amazing monolith is a historic remnant of the Tongan culture. Not only is this massive site free it is also a must see for those that like solstice alignments.

We went there as we wanted to do a whole tour of the island with our rental car. It's nice to see, but you won't miss much if you don't get a chance to do it. There are people selling souvenirs on the car park.

This site is ok, but not a must see. The image tells the story and there is not much else to it. If you have time and are traveling around the island then check it out, but don't go out of your way.
