The Rock of Polynesia

By Linda Tancs

Dubbed “the rock of Polynesia,” Niue is an independent nation in the South Pacific just 1,500 miles from New Zealand. It’s the world’s largest raised coral atoll and the second smallest sovereign nation after Vatican City. Its numerous rainforest trails show off a myriad of caves, beaches, coves and chasms, like the picturesque Matapa Chasm flanked by cliffs. Peak season runs through October, which means increased flight service from Auckland to discover this unspoiled outpost.
