1. Learn a New Skill Together in a Scuba Diving Course
Nothing strengthens the bond quite like learning a new skill together! When in Niue, one of the most rewarding skills you can learn is scuba diving. You have a choice of two dive operators for obtaining a PADI qualification in Niue, which is recognised all over the world. Open Water courses can be completed in just three days, which include four dives in Niue’s breathtakingly clear waters teeming with colourful marine life. Learn more in The Guide to Scuba Diving in Niue.
2. Find Yourselves a Secluded Snorkelling Spot
It’s not uncommon to find yourselves alone in many of Niue’s nooks and crannies. The island’s coastline is scattered with chasms, caves, beaches, reefs and bush walks. What’s more, many of these locations have swimming holes where snorkelling is like getting into an aquarium! Hire a car and spend a day or two exploring them all with the guidance of the 10 Best Places to Snorkel in Niue.
3. See How You Would Fare in the Wild Together on a Nature Tour
Can you imagine being marooned on an island together? Well, find out how you would survive by taking one of the fantastic and informative nature tours in Niue. For instance, Misa’s Nature Tour is hosted by a Niuean who grew up living in the Niuean forests, where you’ll learn to make fire, what plants to use for medicinal remedies, eat and drink coconuts through their different stages of life and much more! Alternatively, become acquainted with the Niuean forest on the Ebony Rainforest Tours where you’ll learn how traditional food and medicines are gathered, visit stunning caves and see the rare ebony wood that your host uses to carve spectacular sculptures and jewellery. Another option is roaming the rainforest on the Taue Uga Tour to learn about baiting and hunting coconut crabs. See The Guided Tours in Niue for more information.
4. Treat Your Loved One to a Fabulous Dinner
Despite being a remote island, Niue has a surprisingly varied range of international cuisines made with the freshest ingredients. Share a sushi platter prepared by a Tokyo chef at Kaiika or sip on flavoursome cocktails at All Relativf. Head over to The Guide to the Best Eats & Restaurants in Niue for dining recommendations.
5. Stargaze in Some of the World’s Darkest Skies
See if the stars really do align by stargazing together in some of the world’s darkest skies. With hardly any artificial light pollution obscuring the night’s sky, Niue experiences unbelievably vivid star displays on clear nights. The best stargazing can be experienced if you’re staying in one of the private accommodations or holiday homes in Niue, where you can switch the lights off, lie on your deck’s sunlounger, and enjoy the worlds above.
6. Cycle the Uncrowded Forest Bike Trails
More ways you can spend time in Niue, just the two of you, are on the bike trails. Ride on old 4×4 tracks through the tropical bush, seeing parts of the island very few visitors get to see. Much of the island is flat, so riding around is an enjoyable experience. Some accommodations offer bike hire for free, while bike rentals are also available through some car rental companies. See The Guide to Mountain Biking in Niue for more information.
7. Get Competitive with a Round of Golf
If you’re the type of couple who like to get competitive, then why not hit the golf courses of Niue? Choose your style: a clifftop mini-golf course or a nine-hole golf course among coconut palms. The Vaiolama Cafe’s mini-golf course provides a unique and fun golf experience winding through coastal bush and can be completed with a refreshing smoothie at the cafe once the battle’s won. Alternatively, keen golfers will find a refreshing golf course among coconut tree-lined fairways at the Niue Golf and Sports Club. Find out more about these courses in Where to Golf in Niue.
8. Explore the Coast by Kayak
A relaxing way to explore the coast is in a kayak. Kayak Niue offer kayak hire for couples wishing to explore the many nooks and crannies of Niue’s shores. Guided kayak tours are also available from Avatele Beach or the Kalaone Sea Track should you want to check out some historical and scenic hidden gems. Find out more in The Guide to SUP, Canoe and Kayak in Niue.
9. Experience a Life-Changing Encounter with Humpback Whales
You’ll be talking about that time you swam with whales in Niue for years to come after you’ve had this life-changing experience. Between July and September/October each year, humpback whales migrate to Niue’s waters to raise their young. Niue is one of the very few places in the world where you can see these gentle giants underwater, which is an experience that is wonderful yet impossible to fully describe. Learn how you can have this experience yourselves in The Guide to the Whale Season in Niue.
10. Impress Each Other with a Huge Catch on a Fishing Charter
Book yourselves a private fishing charter and head out onto the Niuean waters to reel up some huge game fish.
