caving

According to some European cave experts, Niue possesses the most spectacular and extensive cave system in the entire South Pacific.

Niue’s coastline is punctuated by literally hundreds of magnificent caves and chasms. All are unique and some, where the sea no longer invades, are used for the storage of canoes while others have been used as ancient burial places or homes in the past. Many are still being formed, with stalagmites and stalactites in all stages of formation. Many can be explored self guided but for those that dare tours can be arranged for some more challenging and impressive caves can be booked through the Niue Tourism Visitor Information Centre.
