Every month throughout the year each Niuean village has their annual “Village Show Day” which is a typical Niue ‘Food and Arts Festival’ day. A fantastic day out for friends and families and one that visitors thoroughly enjoy.
This is the main day for each village to showcase their amazing talents through creative hand crafts and embroidery displays, locally grown produce and making some extra cash through food stalls, games and competitions. The wonderful array of crafts and local produce are judged for prizes and sold very quickly. It truly is a wonderful day out for everyone and it just gets better and more creative every year.
There’s much fun to be had on and in Niues crystal clear waters.
Apart from ever-popular snorkelling, diving, whale-watching and fishing, Niue also offers a range of alternative water activities. These include:
– Underwater scooters – letting riders explore the reef edge on snorkel or scuba, either going deep underwater or just cruising on the surface.
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.
The Niue rainforest is home to Uga (coconut crabs). These giant land crabs are only found in Niue and eat coconuts, dehusking them to get inside to the flesh.
Uga tours happen after dark and provide visitors with an opportunity to see an uga in its natural habitat. Have the uga lifecycle explained and see first hand some of the methods used to capture them and why they are of such cultural importance to Niueans. Visitors may also have the opportunity to hold an uga
