Down on Avatele Beach. The sand (or rather, broken coral) at the largest beach on Niue is quite rough , but is a popular spot for people to hang out at. I chatted with a guy reading an Assassin's Creed novel, a Swiss family, and a few others who trickled in around lunch time. Since the island is so small, everyone felt very approachable and was open to conversation. I also found that I kept bumping into the same people over and over again. There were times where someone would greet me enthusiastically by name, but I wouldn't remember who that was, since I met so many people in my time there.
