|A group of guys on their evening workout|
We headed down past the Royal Palace and along the water and within a few minutes on the scooter, reached long but narrow strip of beach that was slowly being made narrower by the incoming tide. Rocky but pleasant, we watched the waves come in and played cards as the sun set. Swimming isn't great at the beach, as it's shallow for very very far out, as most beaches are in Tonga, but decent -- we waved to other swimmers as we arrived.
|The walkway and road takes a "U" inland around the Royal Palace. Although we like the walkway, I imagine some of the homeowners along the water were less pleased!|
|We always see a lot of people hunting for shellfish out in the water too. The beach is filled with coral chunks and seaweed.|

|A great place to relax|
From the Post Office, walk west, past the back side of the Palace. Follow the road as it turns towards and then along the water. Go past the Tonga Cable building until you like the look of the beach!
