Talava Arches, Niue

4.8
#2 of 6 in Nature in Niue
Take a hike to Talava Arches and witness the ocean framed by three natural limestone formations. A relatively short walk (about 30 minutes) takes you through tropical rainforest to reach this attraction. With any luck, you'll spot humpbacks circling offshore. Wear shoes with good traction to navigate the rocky, steep slope. If you time your visit with low tide, you can snorkel in the rock pool.

    30 minutes bush walk one way is worth the beauty of the view and feeling of the power of nature. Good hiking SHOES are highly recommended, because of the sharp rocks on the path. We have met a few enthusiasts in their jandals not looking particularly happy. The final part of the path goes through low overhead rocks, kind of a cave. Take water and snacks with you. Not a place for swimming.

    Well worth a short walk to see one of Niue's natural wonders.

    After a 20 min walk through tropical vegetation, for which you need shoes not flipflops, it is a great reward at the end... Time your visit for low tide so you can safely walk out to the arch.
