Niue Need to Know

In Holiday Reviews - Niue, Holiday Reviews - South Pacific Islands, Islands & Beaches by The H4C Team

Niue is the undiscovered tropical paradise ideal for your romantic getaway or honeymoon. With luxurious accomodation, exquisite cuisine, plenty of things to see, do and buy, you will leave relaxed and with experiences that will last a lifetime (not that you’ll want to!)


There are two AirNew Zealand flights per week in the peak season (April – September) between Auckland and Niue departing Saturday and Wednesday mornings. Niue lies on the opposite side of the date line, meaning that the three-hour flight will result in a 24-hour time change!
