A Guide to a Niue Getaway for Adults
Want to set the right tone for your trip to paradise? Niue is certainly an ideal choice – not because it has adult-only resorts (because it doesn’t), but because there are so few people heading to this hidden gem of the South Pacific that you need hardly worry about your Niue-time being disturbed. With most accommodation being private holiday homes or boutique accommodation, many activities more suited to adults, and even the most popular attractions being secluded most of the time, Niue provides an effortless adult-only-style escape. Let us explain further in this complete adults-only travel guide to Niue.
