Aloft is a tiny town with very little in the way of shops. There is a supermarket a couple of hundred metres north of the main centre and 2 dairy type shops, a bottle store that sells duty free, a couple of food places. Also a tourist centre, police station, a back packers, covered market (only open for a few... More

Group of small shops opening at a variety of times - not always times that are listed. Post office, small supermarket, bakery, Niue Telecom and a couple of gift shop type places. Indian restaurant also. Small playground in the middle plus a couple of tables and chairs.

The Commercial Centre is based around a quadrangle with a number of small businesses selling every thing from groceries and prepared food, to telecomms & internet services, souvenirs and haircuts! The sole bank, Kiwibank and the post office are also located there too. Best find for me was the tiny Tahiono Gallery which showcases local artists, including internationally renowned painter...

The Telecom office was the first place we looked for when we arrived on the island. The office is to the rear, on the right side when you go up the steps to enter. They change you $5 for an hour which is a fair price. there are tables where you can sit but, try to stay as close to... More

When we first drove past the commercial centre, we actually thought it was a school. Mainly because it was set around a quadrangle, and there was no major signage. The opening hours can be inconsistent, but that is the kind of lay-back way things are in Niue.The 2 little grocery stores do have some products that are not in stock... More

The Commercial Centre of Alofi is very small which is understandable for such a small population. The only problem most tourists found is that not all the stores are open when they should be- Island time I guess. The stores could have been a little more attractive to visitors also- handicraft store/ souvenir store with not much in them. Good... More

In the middle of Alofi, this is Niue's main shopping centre. It is the closest you get to one stop shopping in Niue and contains the only bank, post office and telecoms. There are two grocery shops which include a butchery, Salas Hair Salon, Tavanas fish and chip shop and Gils Indian resturant for lunches and dinner. Okakoa video store... More
