Virna Smith, the Group Marketing Manager for Scenic Hotel Group recently had the opportunity to visit Niue and shares her 'Must Do's' in Niue with us.

The first thing that you should do is book a ‘Guided Orientation Tour’ as soon as possible at the start of your stay. We did ours with Commodore. It took about 4 hours and our Host Keith shared plenty of local knowledge with us. On our trip, we travelled ‘clockwise’ around the island and stopped off at many of the chasm’s, sea tracks, whaling watching view points, pools etc.

 

Pack your Togs, Swim Towel and Reef Shoes!

The tour gives you great insight into the ‘must do’s whilst you are on the Island. It's similar to the ‘Hop-on, Hop-off’ tours we do around cities, but ‘a la island style’. 

Hire a car – this is highly recommended as there is no public transport on the island. The Island boasts 64km of tropical beauty and you honestly do not want to miss out on a single kilometre. (Niue Driver’s License required – this is obtained from the local Police station at a cost of $22.50).

Highlights

Washaway Café, Avatele Beach - open Sundays only from 11am ‘till late. Enjoy a drink at the ‘honesty’ bar and tuck into a burger, focaccia with grilled fish or a delicious pizza. There is just that ‘something special’ about Washaway. The casual outdoor atmosphere, music playing in the background, people laughing, joking, sharing experiences and just soaking up the incredible atmosphere is what makes it so unique! Don’t forget to take your snorkelling gear and your reef shoes with you. We had a great time snorkelling just off the slipway, plenty see!

Vaiolama Café and Mini Golf – firstly I need to add that I enjoyed the most delicious toasted chicken mayonnaise and cheese sandwich that I have ever tasted! I could not quite work out what the ‘secret spice’ was though! The Mini Golf Course is built along the cliff and through the lush tropical foliage. Great fun and some challenging holes too!

Matapa Chasm– safe to swim and snorkel at any time, fabulous spot. Great spot to have a picnic too.

Kaiika Restaurant, Alofi has a convivial atmosphere. A trip to Niue is not complete unless you've tasted the sushi and pizza. Our host Avi with his exuberant personality and beautiful wife Nau ensure you have a fabulous time and delicious meal. According to Avi, using your fingers to eat enhances your sensory experience of eating the traditional Japanese way.

Limu Pools – the beauty of the pools take your breath away as you come through the lush tropical growth – I’ll say no more as I do not want to spoil it for you!

Scenic Matavai Resort Niue – after exploring all day, head back to the Resort and enjoy Cocktails at the Pool Bar as you watch the sun go down over the Pacific Ocean.
