First images from Niue






Niue, 259 square km, less than 1500 people, one flight a week, from Auckland (about 3.5 hours). This place is very relaxed, no big resorts or fancy restaurants, no beaches, but rocks, caves, coral, natural pools, chasms, bush tracks... and coconut crabs.



We rented a car, number plates have easy to remember numbers, and phone numbers are the same: 4 digits only :-). The one radio station plays mellow Polynesian tunes and it is very hot.




Natural swimming pools and sea chasms are cool and full of colourful fish (and some sea snakes too, I didn't see any yet, but the others did... apparently). I love this place, I just leave you with some images, 
have a good Sunday.

ciao
A.

  3. It's over 5 years since I was in Niue and I absolutely loved it - nothing to do but relax and fantastic snorkling and diving.

    Have a great time.
