Sightseeings: The main and probably the only attraction of the island is the ocean. There are not so many beaches here, as a sophisticated tourist would like, but amazingly clean water (visibility in some places is up to 90 meters). Steep slopes of the underwater base of the island, densely overgrown with coral “gardens”, go into the ocean abyss, and the surrounding waters are saturated with flocks of fish of all kinds. There are no rivers on the island, so the rainwater is filtered through the thickness of the coral massif of the island, leaving the ocean already crystal clear and devoid of all impurities. This allowed the island to become one of the diving centers in the region.
Diving takes place almost directly in the open waters of the Pacific Ocean, as Niue does not have any barrier reefs or lagoons. Within 100 meters from the shore, you can make a dive of any complexity, many of them pass through numerous picturesque underwater canyons, through caves or underwater caverns in a coral massif. A great place for diving is the area of the Motel Coral Gardens in Namui, where the most popular “routes” pass along ancient coral “ridges” and where regularly there are meetings with numerous sea turtles.
