Niue is a very special South Pacific island destination, situated 410 km east of Tonga across the dateline, just a 3 hour flight from Auckland. It is one single island and the largest coral land mass in the world. Niue is an uplifted coral atoll atop an old undersea volcano and rises off the sea bed out of the very deep Pacific Ocean. It is blessed with great natural beauty inland, and a unique rugged coastline and small reef that provides superb fishing, diving and snorkelling. The surging Pacific Ocean has created soaring archways, deep chasms, cool caves, fascinating rock pools and intimate swimming coves around the island. As a fringe of coral reef clings to Niue’s sides before plunging to abyssal depths, there are no sandy beaches.
The fishing in Niue is exciting as it is adventurous; as there is no encircling reef, there are drop offs to very deep water within 50 metres of the rocks making it as good at sea as on land. Gamefish use Niue as they would a FAD for both feeding and as a point of reference.
There are the big fish such as Wahoo and Yellowfin Tuna cruising by, as well as a range of coral hugging species such as Blue Fin Trevally, Red Bass, Queen Fish, Long Toms, Pike and other species.
Whether game fishing, sport fishing or landbased, there is great fishing to be had on Niue. Niue is one of the best kept fishing possie secrets left in the world.
Niue best suits those looking for an adventure activities holiday in a quiet place with some diving or fishing.
