Matapa Chasm

Fabulous swimming and snorkeling area, encased by steep 10 m cliffs that overhanging a deep long cool pool full of fish. It is next to the sea, but isolated from its currents by large boulders at the ocean side. The drumming noise from the ocean waves is quite a treat and can be deafening as you near its mouth.

Local Niueans think nothing of jumping from the overhanging cliffs into the deep water, and if you’re keen to follow just ask! In any case, the spectacle is very photogenic, but like much of Niue, you might well have it all to yourself for most of the day!
