Niue is an island nation in the South Pacific Ocean. It is commonly known as the 'Rock of Polynesia', and natives of the island call it the Rock' for short. Niue is 2,400 kilometres northeast of New Zealand in a triangle between Tonga to the southwest, the Samoas to the northwest, and the Cook Islands to the southeast. The land area is 260 sq km with about 1400 people who are predominantly Polynesian. Though self governing, Niue is in free association with New Zealand, and lacks full sovereignty. Queen Elizabeth II is Niue's head of state. Most diplomatic relations are conducted by New Zealand on Niue's behalf.

Niue is one of the world's largest coral islands. The terrain consists of steep limestone cliffs along the coast with a central plateau rising to about 60 metres above sea level. A coral reef surrounds the island, with the only major break in the reef being in the central western coast, close to the capital, Alofi. It is roughly oval in shape (with a diameter of about 18 kilometres), with two large bays indenting the western coast, Alofi Bay in the centre and Avatele Bay in the south. Between these is the promontory of Halagigie Point. A small peninsula, TePaa Point (Blowhole Point), is close to the settlement of Avatele in the southwest. Most of the population resides close to the west coast, around the capital, and in the northwest.

Fishing in Niue is legendary with fishing media describing Niue as a fishermans secret paradise. Very, very deep water is accessed almost immediately from launching so you will spend most of your time fishing, not getting there.

The common sportfishing targets are Black, blue and striped Marlin; Skipjack and Yellowfin Tuna; Red Bass, Mahimahi, Sailfish, Wahoo and Giant Trevally, among many others.
