The tiny Pacific Island of Niue has become the world’s first whole country to be accredited as a ‘Dark Sky Place.’ Basically, it’s a star-spotter’s dream destination — and we’re not talking George & Amal. We’re talking countless shimmering celestial beauties.
Crystal-clear skies, unspoilt by pollution or mass development, earned Niue a tick of approval from the International Dark-Sky Association. Visitors can now enjoy the spectacle on dedicated astro-tours led by trained Niuean community members, taking in twinkling stars, the Milky Way, large and small Magellanic Clouds and the Andromeda Constellation.
Romantically remote but still readily accessible via Auckland New Zealand, Niue is a welcoming tropical paradise of secret beaches, sheltered rocky coves and raised coral atolls.
