Getting to and around the region
Air New Zealand is the only airline to service Niue. Weekly flights from Auckland increase in frequency over the peak season, being the southern hemisphere winter months. The flight time is just over 3 hours, with travellers crossing the international date line en route.
On arrival in Niue, you will find a range of shuttles and transport operators. Scenic Matavai Resort Niue offers guests a complimentary shuttle service from the airport to the Matavai Resorts and the Matavai Apartments & Villa.
Rental cars are also available on the island for hire, as are mountain bikes. While motorbikes operate around the island, visitors generally opt for a small car hire as more suitable for the island roads.
Getting around the island is easy. With one main ring road, it is difficult to get lost. There is good signage for points of interest, whale-watching sites and swimming locations. Friendly locals are also too happy to share favourite local spots and help visitors along their way.

Scenic Matavai Resort is a popular dining spot for locals and visitors alike. With an ever-changing Dolphin Bar & Restaurant menu, including the famous ‘Feast Night,’ accompanied by traditional dance and entertainment, many guests choose to dine at the resort.

In the central hub of Alofi, a range of cuisine is on offer, including a popular Indian restaurant. Freshly caught fish features on most menus and is often cooked and presented using traditional recipes.
