to home, yet a world away….
An eco-tourist’s paradise, Niue is blessed with a wonderful year-round climate and a plethora of natural attractions to create a diverse holiday itinerary. The rugged coastline is framed by tropical rainforest that boasts a spectacular array of flora and fauna, including butterflies and bird life and an abundance of bougainvillaea, frangipani, hibiscus and orchids, providing the perfect backdrop for leisurely activities like fishing, biking and bush walking.
As one of the largest raised coral atolls in the world, spectacular opportunities abound in the waters around Niue. A series of reefs, canyons and caverns sculpted beneath the surface teem with the brilliant colour and diversity of fish life, and provide an exhilarating and memorable experience for novice or pro divers. The island’s clear, shallow water is also perfect for simple snorkelling trips. And although there are none of the classical sandy beaches typical of other Polynesian islands, you can easily find some tiny, intimate little stretches and swimming coves where you might find you’re the only people there all day.
With a population of only 1,800, Niue has an island charm that is maintained by friendly, welcoming locals. Even the transport options are relaxed – although there is no public transport, a handful of taxis service the island and hire cars are reasonably priced, however most visitors prefer to get around on a hire bike or scooter. There is a limited choice of accommodation but most price ranges are covered, from budget-priced self-catering apartments to the Matavai Resort, Niue’s premier accommodation venue which boasts breathtaking sea views – in season, guests can sit at their dining table and watch whales frolic in the ocean!
A holiday in Niue allows for quality bonding time together away from the hustle and bustle of modern city life, and the island is a popular honeymoon destination for couples seeking tranquil, relaxing surrounds. Marriage ceremonies can best be co-ordinated through the Niue Tourism Office in Alofi - give them time to ensure your needs can be catered for and you will be rewarded with a unique and romantic island experience
