One of Niue’s most magical and photogenic spots, the Limu Pools formed in the porous limestone along the coast and are accessed by a sea track from Namukulu Village outside Alofi. Dive off the rocks or descend via a staircase into the calm crystalline water, safe for swimmers of all levels. With a mask and snorkel, you can see live coral, colorful fish and Niue’s native sea snake, the katuali, which is highly venomous (and curious!) but has not been known to bite humans.
