Niue

Niue

Niue sits in pristine clear water atop an undersea mountain dropping off steeply to hundreds of metres close to the shore. There are no rivers or streams and rainwater filters through the coral structure of the island, entering the ocean crystal clear and devoid of any silt run-off. As Niue has no barrier reef or lagoon, diving here is in the open ocean – usually with visibility around 40 metres. In the calmer dry season during April – November, it’s common to see visibility greater than 50m.

In Niue you can dive over canyons, through crystal clear caverns filled with painted crays, and along steep drop-offs looking into “The Abyss”. You can dive coral ridges with turtles, or swim down a chimney through the limestone reef. Visit Snake Gully where you can find the placid Niuean Sea Krait, or Bubble Cave where they lay their eggs. Experienced divers can swim right through the island and surface in a stalactite chamber where huge coconut crabs can often be found.

There is plenty to do on Niue, so it’s worth hiring a car or a bike and setting out to explore. There are lots of walking tracks, fishing opportunities, dry caving, golf and even a vanilla plantation tour. Non divers will find plenty of activities to keep themselves entertained.

Accommodation often books out during the whale watching season (July-October) so it’s important to book early if you want to travel during this time. It’s a good idea to think about hiring a car if you’re staying anywhere other than Matavai Resort, as you will need to make your own way to the dive shop each day. It’s not very expensive and there is so much to see on the island.
