Book Flights to Niue

Niue (pronounced as New-ay) is an independent island country in the South Pacific Ocean, located some 2,400 kilometres North East of New Zealand, and found within the triangle formed by Tonga, Samoa, and Cook Islands. Commonly referred to as the “Rock of Polynesia,” the country's land area measures 269 square-kilometres – relatively small compared to the other Pacific Polynesian nations. The country is a self-governing state with free association with New Zealand, and most of its diplomatic relations are conducted by New Zealand on its behalf.

More than the Pacific coasts surrounding the country, Niue has charmed quite a number of tourists who are up for some adventure. Most activities include explorations, walking on virgin rainforests, and mingling with the country’s nearly 1,500 inhabitants, who – conveniently – speak Commonwealth English. Moreover, the country is a coral atoll, and is a Polynesian cultural heritage site at its finest, so get going and discover Niue!

Local sea and bush tracks connect everything else, making the trip humbling and very adventurous. To conveniently go around the vicinity, it is highly suggested for travellers to rent a car, a motorbike, or a bicycle.
