Geocaching Tonga

Geocaching Tonga is fast becoming a new adventure. We are laying out caches over the complete Vava 'u group. Bring your handheld GPS and follow the cache deposits to some of the most beautiful locations and scenic views over the complete archipelago.

We have deposited caches all over the Vava' u area. We tried to choose the areas with

  • best views,
  • most scenic drives,
  • Tongan marine reserves
  • best bird life
  • most outrageous reefs
  • best climbs
  • great locations
  • best Tongan National parks and
  • areas of Tonga that should not be missed.

Come along with us on a geocaching Tongan adventure.

Visit geocaching Tonga, Wherigo Tonga, for the latest cache updates, or search the geocaching web site for Yachtwork.
