Another must to visit during your visit to Niue. A reasonably easy walk in, but it can be slippery. Amazing formations and well worth a visit.

We enjoyed exploring Palaha cave, lots to explore and see. Unfortunately it had been raining when we visited and two of us had nasty falls. Definitely something to do on a nice dry day, or if you're quite confident on slippery surfaces.

We visited Palaha several times. The limestone formations are stunning, and there is a small pool that is perfect for relaxing in. Also, as low tide there are rock pools that can be snorkeled in with coral and fish to view.

There are so many of these limestone caves on the island and they have amazing signposts, indicating how many minutes to walk, etc. The pathways are all very well made and are safe. Just take your time and watch your steps

Huge and very accessible cave - well worth a visit. Take your camera and some good shoes as some area can be a bit slippery.

This is another interesting cave system with limestone formations and stalagmites and stalactites. Leads to the reef but not a suitable swimming location. Extremely slippery and not really suitable for very young kids or unsteady walkers. You need to be able to clamber over slippery...More

This is very close to Avaiki cave - you can actually walk between the two at low tide. Be sure to have an explore of the cave and a swim! Best not to go at high tide though.
