Niue is the hidden gem of the Pacific. With flights leaving New Zealand each week, this tropical gem is just waiting to be explored. It's a tiny oasis with intimate appeal, with only one resort and a constellation of small self-catering motels.
The island is so small that when you arrive at this inviting South Seas retreat, the flight is likely to be met by a welcome party of locals who are eager for you to enjoy an authentic island stay.

The teeming ocean life is one of the most alluring attractions in Niue. Should you choose to visit between July and October, humpback whales regularly visit Niue. There’s no reef, so they swim right up to the shoreline and you can dive in for a dip with them. There are very few places in the world where you can swim with these magnificent, gentle giants. You can also take a plunge with dolphins and go diving and snorkelling for a deeper look at Niue’s underwater realm. Enjoy the deserted coves and the unbelievably clear water with visibility of up to 80 meters, making Niue a diving and snorkeling paradise.

Let out your inner explorer and delve deep into the heart of the island, slinking into hidden caves and chasms abundant with enchanting stalagmites and stalactites. Find your own glimmering subterranean swimming hole, or head to Avaiki, once the King’s private swimming spot that looks like something straight out of a fairy tale. Or explore further along a number of spectacular walking trails.

Niue is not just a natural paradise — the island offers a rich culture too. Time your journey with the monthly village show, where there are performances, local food, handcrafts, games and competitions. Smiling locals will happily welcome you into the festivities.

One of the best parts of a Niue holiday just might be the food. Taste fresh-cut tropical fruit at the local market or ‘makete,’ which runs every Tuesday and Friday morning in central Alofi, right next door to the Niue Tourism Visitor Information Centre. There you'll find traditional local foods like coconut crab ‘uga’, taro ‘talo’, breadfruit, cassava and unbelievably fresh shellfish. We can report that Niueans set high standards when it comes to food, something you'll notice from the first bite!
No matter what draws you to Niue, you're sure to have an authentic, unforgettable holiday.
