Honeymoon Experiences in Alofi
Couples on a romantic getaway or celebrating a special occasion can enhance their trip to Alofi with one of the utterly romantic experiences. Accessible from the main centre of Niue, Alofi, these romantic activities include a special experience to share together, as well as independent activities for just the two of you. Get inspiration from our list of romantic activities in Alofi for couples!
1. Buddy Up in a Scuba Diving Trip
The underwater world of hard corals, chasms, caves and chimneys are not only awe-inspiring for their marine life and formations, but they are incredible for their visibility. Due to the limestone island soaking water through the land, there is very limited surface run-off to impair underwater vision. This results in some of the clearest waters to scuba dive in the world, with visibility known to reach 80m! The closest scuba diving operator to Alofi is Magical Niue Sea Adventures, offering day and night scuba trips, as well as PADI dive courses. Learn more in The Guide to Scuba Diving in Niue.
2. Find Secluded Beaches and Swimming Holes
Yes, even in Alofi, you can find beaches and swimming holes completely empty! Walk hand-in-hand down one of the six short sea tracks to Utuko Reef, for instance, where you’ll find a golden coral sand beach where reef walking and floating with a snorkel at low tide is a fabulous experience. Additionally, climb down a ladder to a swimming cave on the Amanau Sea Track, best visited at low tide to snorkel with brilliant blue fish! Find out more about the walks in Alofi in the 6 Best Sea Tracks in Alofi.
3. Treat Your Loved One to a Romantic Dinner
Despite being on a tiny island in the middle of the South Pacific, Alofi has a surprising array of eateries to delight the senses. Share a fresh sushi platter or a New York-style pizza at the Kaiika Restaurant, enjoy sundowners with stunning views from the Vaiolama Cafe, open Thursdays for Happy Hour drinks, and dine at Falala Fa Cafe & Bar where you must share the irresistible coconut pie [Update: Falala Fa has closed]! See more recommendations in our Guide to the Best Eats & Restaurants in Alofi.
4. Cycle the Coast and Bush Trails
Another way to get out and about, just the two of you, is through hiring a bike and hitting the trails. There are inland bush trails to really feel away from the world, while the quiet west coast roads passing cafes and various sea tracks is another way to enjoy some riding time. Learn more about the bike trails near Alofi in The Best Bike Trails in Niue.
5. Share a Life-Changing Wildlife Encounter Together
Even if you have been together for years, there are still new experiences to have together in Niue. Niue is one of the very rare places on earth where you can legally swim with humpback whales, which frequent the waters between July and September. Again, Magical Niue Sea Adventures offers whale swimming tours in the whale season, offering an eco-friendly encounter with these gentle giants. See The Guide to Swimming with Whales in Niue for more information. Alternatively (or additionally if you happen to encounter both), swimming with spinner dolphins is available all year round where you have the unique experience of being gently pulled alongside the boat alongside playful spinner dolphins. Check out The Guide to Swimming with Dolphins in Niue for more details.
6. Challenge Each Other to a Game of Mini-Golf
Get competitive with a game of mini-golf on what, we like to think, is one of the most unique mini golf courses out there! Take a swing on the 30m clifftops on an 18-hole golf course winding through coastal forest. After the battle is over, relax with a coffee, smoothie or cocktail at the Vaiolama Cafe.

7. See How You Would Fare in the Wild on Misa’s Nature Tour
Ever wondered what you would do if marooned on a remote island? Misa can give you a few tips on his incredible informational and inspiring nature tour. Located 1.5km (one mile) out of Alofi town opposite Niue High School, Misa’s Nature Tour will take you on a journey of surviving in the bush, from what food to eat to where to sleep. Misa grew up living in the forests of Niue, so has much to share on the flora and fauna of Niue.
