SCENIC DRIVE TOUR OF TONGA
ISLAND IN THE SUN
The on Tonga's western coast, called the Chief's Whistles, are widely considered the most spectacular blowholes in the entire South Pacific. You’ll stop near Kolovai to observe the flying foxes—these sleep suspended from trees, heads down and wings folded. The bats are is Tonga’s only native land mammal and their wings span nearly three feet. They enjoy sacred status here in Tonga. Standing directly under the ironwood pines in which they hang is to be avoided at all costs. You’ll see the Liahona Mormon Coconut Plantation, home to a natural oddity—a bizarre, three-headed coconut tree.
