Avaiki Cave, Niue

(30+ reviews on the web)
Cave Nature / Park
Explore the rocky walls of Avaiki Cave and swim in its natural pool. Sea water fills the karst cave's basin; according to a legend, the king of Niue was the only one allowed to bathe in it. Today visitors can take a dip in its cold but refreshing water, mingling with the small colorful fish. The uneven amount of sunlight in the cave creates different shades of blue and green. You might want to keep your shoes on as you swim due to the rocky floor. Using our world travel planner, Alofi attractions like Avaiki Cave can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
