    About Niue

The island of Niue is a large upraised coral atoll – one of the largest in the world – in the Pacific Ocean right between the islands of Tonga, Samoa and the Cook Islands. Niue is largely covered in forest, with 14 small villages scattered across it. It has steep rocky shores, and the fact that it has no lakes or rivers makes for some incredible underwater adventures: the water visibility is crystal clear, as much as 80 metres. Being a tropical island, the waters are warm year-round, and the days can reach 30 degrees C (take a light jumper for the evenings). As well as unspoilt waters, Niue has unspoilt night skies: in 2020 Niue became the world’s first country to become a Dark Sky Nation. Totally bring your camera!!

The locals are genuinely friendly, respectful and hospitable people, and speak both Niuean and English. With Christianity playing a large part in society, Sunday is a quiet and respected day here (do try and attend a church service if you can, and hear the beautiful singing).

While many businesses have EFTPOS and accept New Zealand debit cards, Mastercard and Visa, cash (the New Zealand dollar) is widely used. There are no ATMs on the island, so bring your own cash and if you run short you can withdraw extra from Kiwibank in Alofi. 

There is no public transport, so you’re best to book a rental car or E-Bike before you go to get around the island. Food can be purchased from restaurants or supermarkets, but also bring in your own food especially if you have special dietary requirements. Niue does offer some seasonal local fruits and produce, and also boasts a large hydroponic operation for fresh salads and vegetables.

  • We had THE most wonderful experience being taken swimming with whales and snorkelling at some amazing locations off Alofi. The guys at Niue Blue were so informative and helpful. Couldn’t recommend them too highly.

  • Lee G Very well run, professional, well equipped and friendly organization. Definitely 5 stars!

  • Being new to any ‘Pacific Experience’, for me Niue was a a hidden treasure with the Niue Blue company as the incredible ‘icing on the cake’!! The level of professionalism up-held by the Niue Blue team was impressive. From the outset their HQ was a welcoming space, the equipment distributed to us was new, clean and great to wear & use, the transport & boats modern, clean, comfortable and fabulously manhandled, and health & safety was a number 1 priority demonstrated by the incredibly friendly, engaged and passionate staff. The Niue Blue Experience is a very obvious Must Do when visiting gorgeous Niue. THANK YOU Team!!
