Talava Arches, Hikutavake

#4 of 10 in Parks in Niue
Nature / Park · Cave
Take a hike to Talava Arches and witness the ocean framed by three natural limestone formations. A relatively short walk (about 30 minutes) takes you through tropical rainforest to reach this attraction. With any luck, you'll spot humpbacks circling offshore. Wear shoes with good traction to navigate the rocky, steep slope. If you time your visit with low tide, you can snorkel in the rock pool. Arrange to visit Talava Arches and other attractions in Hikutavake using our Hikutavake online trip itinerary planner.
