Pretty cool to see. Would love to know which story is true about how it got there. The slabs of coral are huge and it would take a big effort to not only cut it from the ocean but bring it on land. There is...More

We were met by barbed wire fence and a padlock so could not enter the sight from the street. We would have liked a closer look but that was not to be.

Can easily be seen from the road (just pull up alongside). However, I am sure there is an interesting story to it, if only anyone could have been bothered to open up on a Monday. Yet another "no-one could be bothered" experience of Tonga tourism.

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.

Amazing ' Stonehenge type of thing" in that no ones knows who made this stone sculpture or when exactly, but they believe it was for the fishermen and used as a sundial when to go out to fish and to come back. There's stalls there...More

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.
