This natural bridge or arch is formed in the upliifted limestone of the 'Eua oceanic coast. But, it's legendary origin, is due to the volatile Polynesian folk hero, Maui, who threw his spear across the island of 'Eua and the spear lodged here!
Surrounded by natural coastal woodland that is home to the koki or red 'Eua parrot (I sighted three), it is a beautiful area with the roar of the Pacific swell crashing into the cliffs and sending walls of water 10-20M up the cliffs, and by contrast as one retreats into the woods, the cicadas, insects and birds create orchestral concertos.
Very nice news pictures Ian, greetings

Beautiful and very interesting place
It is indeed, Rafal. Thank you for your appreciative comment and visit. This is the wettest part of Tonga, and it was certainly wet when I was there!
I am pleased that you have enjoyed these photos and Tonga.
