Where to Get Your Grams in Niue

Niue is such a stunning destination in the South Pacific that it would almost be a crime to not share your wonderful travel snaps. But where are the best places to get photos for social media in Niue? From epic coastal landscapes to photogenic food, here are the most Instagrammable places in Niue.

Before we jump into the most Instagrammable places in Niue, don’t forget to bookmark the 101 Things to Do in Niue: The Ultimate List featuring more amazing experiences.

1. Avaiki Cave

The contrast of colours between the limestone cave and the vibrant blue pools makes the Avaiki Cave an utterly Instagrammable location in Niue. The cave near Makefu is only accessible at low tide, where you’ll want to bring your snorkelling gear to check out the fishy residents in the cave’s large pool. Extra tip: there’s an amazing photo spot of the pool on the flat space between the two wooden walkways. Climb around the boulders toward the light where you’ll see the pool below. Check out more photo-worthy caves in the 10 Most Stunning Caves in Niue.

Location: Makefu, west coast

2. Matapa Chasm

The Matapa Chasm has a way of making you look (and feel) so small in between the two huge towering cliffs on either side of a sheltered pool. The pool, accessed along a seven-minute sea track from Hikutavake, is one of the only snorkelling attractions in Niue that you can swim safely at any tide. The best time for photos is at midday when the sun is directly above the chasm. Learn more about the tide in Niue here.

3. Togo Chasm

It’s hard to believe a place like this exists – a sandy chasm with coconut palms growing from the depths. You can check it out for yourself in the Huvalau Forest Conservation Area where this 40-minute walk has many photo-worthy moments, from seeing amazing trees to being on top of a rugged pinnacle-dappled coastline. The main event, however, is climbing down a long rung ladder to the bottom of the Togo Chasm.

4. Limu Pools (Main Pools)

The Limu Pools is one of the most iconic sights in Niue, mainly for its azure waters and rocky sheltered cove capturing the beauty of Niue. The main pools are the best place to snorkel, especially at mid to high incoming tide. You can find it along a short sea track from the village of Namukulu. Check out more snorkelling hotspots in the 10 Best Places to Snorkel in Niue.

5. Limu Pools (Side Pool)

While many believe this small coastal arch is a destination in itself in Niue, it is, in fact, just located down a side track at the Limu Pools! Don’t miss the short track just behind the shade sail, where you’ll go down a short latter to a sheltered cove with an arch. Be careful about surges through the archway if you are swimming there, especially on an incoming tide.
