WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

  • NZ Cash – We highly recommend bringing plenty of New Zealand Dollars with you to avoid disappointment when you arrive in Niue. The dive shop, along with most tours, restaurants and shops, are NZ cash only and cannot accept card payments.
  • Shoes – If you intend to spend time in the water, you must bring reef shoes for access to the many reef pools along the coast. For forest walks and cave tours you’ll need covered walking shoes that are strong, light and easy to dry (or very waterproof!) You’ll also need a pair or two of thongs/jandals or easy, slip on sandals.
  • First Aid Kit – Although the shops stock basic medications, it’s advisable to bring your own first aid kit, particularly as medical help may not be readily available. There is a lot of sharp coral around that can leave you with a nasty cut, so it’s better to be prepared.
  • Insect Repellent – Insect attack is entirely unpredictable in Niue. The evenings are balmy with many harmless moths but few mosquitoes. Bring it anyway, just in case.
  • Sun Protection – You’ll need to bring a hat, shades, and sunscreen with an SPF of 30+ or stronger. One day of tropical sun from a clear sky can leave you with blisters.
  • WHAT IS THE CURRENCY?

    The currency in Niue is the New Zealand dollar (NZD). The economy is largely cash-based with credit cards only being accepted at the Resort and at the Tourism Visitor Information Centre. There are NO ATMs on the island but you can withdraw extra cash from Kiwibank in Alofi. Kiwibank only accepts NZ debit cards, Mastercard and Visa. Note also that Kiwibank does not handle foreign exchange.

    Tipping is not expected, but is always appreciated.

    WHAT IS THE LANGUAGE?

    English is widely spoken on Niue. The local Niuean language is increasingly falling out of favour but you’ll win the hearts of many locals by learning a few Niuean words:

    Greetings or hello: Fakaalofa lahi atu
    Thank you: Fakaaue
    Please: Fakamolemole
    Eat: Kai
    Drink: Inu
    Good luck: Kia monuina
