When to Go to Niue
It's a good idea to avoid the December-March cyclone season, but outside those months weather conditions are pretty stable. Average temperatures peak at around 27°C (80°F) December-March, and a mild 24°C (75°F) during the rest of the year. The best time to visit Niue is during the Constitution celebrations in October.
The highlight of Niue's events calendar is the October Constitution celebrations, commemorating the island's independence and the arrival of Christianity (Peniamina Day). Handicraft displays, sporting events, singing, dancing and dining are the order of the day. Each village has an annual show day, another opportunity for song and dance. January is marked by Prayer Week and Takai Week, a kind of 'village drive-by'.
