Ha'amonga'a Maui Trilithon is worth stopping if you are driving in the area. I sat Stonehenge years ago this does not compare other than no one knows who made it. Not much else around other than a few local vendors. We traveled by TAXI so...More

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.

We visited as part of an island tour. The history from the guide was interesting. Its not a must do, but as part of the culture and tour it was worthwhile and very good.

Very curios rock structure - seems to align with the longest and shortest days plus also has a smaller Rock carved for a paranoid king. Get a local guide to tell you the story of why the King was a renown knee cracker! Good walks...More
