What You Need to Know About Spending 5 Days in Niue
Things work a little differently in Niue than what you might be used to, so here are some useful things to keep in mind when planning a five-day getaway:
- To spend five days in Niue, you need to arrive on Friday and leave on Tuesday due to Niue’s limited flight schedule
- With limited transport on the island, hiring a car for five days is highly recommended
- Niue is a small island, so don’t worry about changing destinations each day to experience it to its fullest. Base yourself in one accommodation and drive to the attractions from there
