Photograph - Photograph
Ha'atafu Beach is located on the main island of Tongatapu, 21 km west from the capital Nuku'alofa, on Hihifo peninsula.
Ha'atafu beach is not only the location of the best break in Tonga but also one of the best places to do snorkeling, safe with all tides and plenty of different kind of tropical fishes and corals!
This coast is exposed to west - north west, recieving this way any winter swell from both hemispheres and having the east - south east wind blowing off-shore. These conditions make Ha'atafu a unique place in all the south Pacific with world class waves all year long !
The lionfish is a fish of many names, including the turkeyfish, the dragonfish, and even the butterfly cod. It dwells in the central Pacific and western bodies of water. This fish is a warm water fish that can be extremely poisonous. They are a spiky looking fish that will prey on smaller fish every chance they get. Don't let this downsize the poisonous feature of the fish, as they can still use this poison to take down much larger prey as well.
