Not my favourite to be fair probably because on the day there were very few fish around and it felt a bit overused. It is very popular though and an easy walk. Enjoy.....

Had a couple of visits here on our recent trip to Niue and enjoyed both. Remember to follow the path to pools over the back worth checking out too. Easy walk in and it is worthy of a visit to snorkel or just swim.

Another great spot in Niue to swim and snorkel. Not too far from the road so a 10 minute walk. Well worth the visit to cool down. I would recommend Limu pools.

Limu Pools was one of my favourite places to swim in Niue. A short steep track and your there in less that 5 mins from the road. There’s two sides to swim on, one side been more tougher to get too due to the rock/...More

Enjoyed the pools. Good snorkeling, but very physically demanding to get to. Have to hike down to the entrance from the road over uneven path. Pools located several miles from town.
