The Independence's Year:



Little kingdom of only 748 Kmq, but constituted by more than 150 wonderful islands of volcanicity or coralline origin in the center of Polynesia.
Islands are formed of by three main groups: the Tongatapu Group at south, formed by the main island, Eua and a lot of little atolls; the Ha' apai Islands at the middle, formed of by tens of little atolls and the Vava'u Islands, sailors' paradise; besides the Tofahi Islands in the far north.
The main island is Tongatapu, on whose northern coasts the capital rises: Nuku'alofa, nice town, dominated by the small Royal Palace, the only town of Tonga.
Most of the population is obese.
Islands and sea are wonderful everywhere.
