Worth a stop, park up top off the main road and walk down the path to the water. Bring your reef shoes, like most places in Niue. OK snorkeling spot. Signboard at top giving a little bit of info about the history of this place.

We spent and afternoon seeking out the best spots, this one was amazing to say the least. We would have spent time in the water but there was high seas at the time.
