Where to Find Wellness and Yoga Retreats in Niue

Niue is one small island in the South Pacific, so getting to your wellness retreat will be easy with no island-hopping required once you get there. You’re never more than 30 minutes drive from just about anywhere on the island. So when searching for a wellness retreat on the island, simply searching for a “Niue retreat” will suffice.

Niue is unlike any other island in the South Pacific in that is a large raised coral atoll. It has no soft sandy beaches, so expect yoga classes and sessions to take place in venues with decks atop 30 m (100 ft) cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
