Niue by Trevor

24 May 2008 | Gabriella

Niue is a small, beautiful country in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. We arrived in Niue May 12, 2008 on Gabriella. There is no harbor on Niue so you have to moor up on the lee side of the island. There is almost always a swell rolling into the shore. To take the dinghy out you motor up to a lift and lift it out by yourself. It is one of the craziest things I have seen. I could never see that being done in the US. Once we got the dinghy stowed on the wharf we walked up to the yacht club and met a very nice lady named Mamata. She runs the the little restaurant at the club. While my parents were at a market in town they met a nice couple they were named Ligi and Patrick. Patrick is from California and his wife is from Niue. We offered them some of the 175 pound tuna we had just caught and they accepted with great pleasure. The next day Patrick drove us to some of the cool sites on Niue. We went to a cave that you can swim in and a place called Limu where we saw lots of sea snakes. After touring some of the island we went back to their house had a snack and met his daughters who had come home from school. Patrick has two daughters and one son. The next day Mamata was having a little party for all the yachties that were around. There we met a man named Shane he is from Niue but is living in Canada. Shane is currently translating the new testament into Niueian. One day Shane drove us all the way around Niue and we stopped at one of the coolest places on earth called Togo. To get there you take a 15 minute hike through the rain forest and eventually come out on the windy side of the island. You walk down a path of wind sharpened stones and end up at Niue beach. It is a little patch of sand in the middle of these walls of sharp rocks. It is probably the only sand on the entire island and it is in the most beautiful spot. Down on the beach there is a cave into the rocks which leads to the ocean. Once you walk a little ways into the cave you start to feel the cool blast of salt water air blown into your face from the giant seas crashing into the rocks ahead. When we reach the end of the cave you could look out facing south and view the vast Pacific Ocean. We got some awesome pictures of the cave then returned up the rocks and back into the rain forest. After our tour around the island we stopped at a resort for Fish N' Chips. While at dinner we saw the Primer of Niue. He is basically like a president. The next morning we woke up and went to a huge festival in one of the villages on Niue. There was tons of food, drinks, games, and sales going on. Later in the day the villagers had coconut crab races. They would put these crabs into a large circle then coax them to run out and the first one to do so won. Our last day in town was a Sunday. We went to Shane and Patrick's church. It is a very small church with only a few members. During church we were told that if we ever need a place to stay on Niue they have plenty of land to share. After church we had a lunch with Shane, his sister Sharon, and her husband Rudy. Lunch was very good. After lunch Shane drove us back to the boat and we cast off on our way to the Kingdom of Tonga.
