Silversea Expedition Cruises À ALOFI

ALOFI

Alofi, the capital of Niue island, or “The Rock” as it is known to its inhabitants. The island has a population of only around 600 inhabitants, giving it the modest title of being the second smallest capital “city” in the world. The island does boast an international airport but despite this, tourism is not as rife here as in some of the other, better known Polynesian idylls. Niue has a distinctive beauty all of its own.

Think less of the sweeping, romantic beaches for which Polynesia is famous and more sheltered rocky coves, jewel-like reef pools, headlands, tropical forest, coconut plantations and neat, colourful villages scattered throughout the island’s 100 sq.m. The crystal clear waters and limestone caves of beautiful Alofi Bay offer spectacular snorkelling opportunities. The island is sometimes referred to as its ancient name of Savage Island. Niueans’ nature of worship was in the past joyful and ecstatic. Islanders would receive the power of the divine by dancing around a campfire. These ceremonies, called tugi e mama (lighting the fires) were especially used before going to war, when a priest or shaman would light a fire and call out to the gods to come to the aid of the troops who were about to enter in battle. As one of Polynesia’s poorer islands, today Niue has no organised religion, although islanders are incredibly spiritual. Thus, there are no real places of worship but rather areas of land – known as taugas - marked out and reserved solely for the breeding of birds and crabs.

Excursions depuis ALOFI

Hiking with Silversea Expedition team

Follow your Expedition Guide on a Minimal activity walk to the natural Matapa Chasm, noted for its expansive face and historical importance as a reserved bathing place for Niue's traditional kings. Be amazed by the breathtaking view where freshwater meets salt water and perhaps even take a dip in the sparkling waters. Thereafter we shall make our way to the Palaha Cave. The cave is a short walk from the main road over the natural stones where you will get the first glimpse of the cave and the reef. The cave consists of amazing natural formation of limestone and fossilized corals.


If that does not sound like something you want to do, another possibility is to go to Togo. The village is reached by a track starting about 4km north of Hakupu. After leaving the bush, the track descends through a mass of jagged coral pinnacles to a grassy flate where a passage leads off the edge of a chasm. At the foot of the chasm there is a beach of fine golden sand from which some coconut trees rise, almost reaching to the rim of the chasm.

Kayaking with Silversea Expedition team

Kayak in the prestine waters of Alofi, home to schools of resident spinner dolphins. Enjoy the crystal clear waters to admire manta rays and bull sharks from above.

Zodiac Cruise with Silversea Expedition team

One of the largest raise coral atolls in the Pacific, Niue, is known as "The Rock" to its inhabitants. The area around Alofi is marked by steep limestone cliffs, coastal caves and the beautiful Alofi Bay. Explore by Zodiac this beautiful coast and its limestone caves.
