It's the world's smallest independent nation, but it packs a mighty punch: Think untouched pristine reefs and beaches, underwater caves, whale watching and a super-friendly population of locals and expats.
Niue packages will help you experience the best of this tiny South Pacific island, located about 2400 km northeast of New Zealand.
If you think a Niue holiday is just about lazy afternoons and sipping from coconuts on a secluded beach, think again. While there are gorgeous beaches on the island, you're probably going to be too busy checking out the action under the water. Niue is considered one of the South Pacific's most unique dive spots, and it’s also one of the world's largest coral islands. That, coupled with the island's caves, rock pools, tiny swimming coves, limestone chasms and rugged coastline, make it a diving and snorkelling experience you won't forget. If you book Niue holiday packages between June and October, you can also see humpback whales frolicking with their newborn calves (a big dose of “aww!”).
For travellers who prefer to stay on dry land, Niue also has good fishing, excellent walking, mountain biking and hiking trails and even a golf course. Nature lovers will also be able to enjoy a diverse range of flora and fauna, bird life and lush rainforest.
There are no malls in Niue, so embrace the local island life and get your retail fix at the village markets in Alofi instead. Along with fresh produce, there are also handicrafts to pick up that are ideal for souvenirs or a little memento for yourself. If you're not staying near Alofi (or if you’re a shopaholic!), look into one of Wotif’s Niue car hire options to carry all that loot.
More of an eater than a browser? Delicious local food can be found at these village markets, as well as at several restaurants and resorts. Niue's proximity to New Zealand, the Cook Islands and Samoa means that a mix of Polynesian and European food is common. For a unique island experience, check out one of the annual village show days. Every year, each of the island's villages hosts a day that showcases their cooking, including traditional local foods like crab, shellfish, coconuts, taro and breadfruit. If you're visiting a restaurant, just check whether you need to book first—due to Niue's small population, some restaurants have reduced opening hours.
Embrace island life after dinner and grab a drink at one of the beachfront bars or take in the view at a cliff-top cafe. Although the permanent population of Niue is tiny—think less than 1200 locals and expats!—they're a friendly bunch, so be prepared to have a chat and maybe make a new friend on Niue holidays.
