Niue (pronounced "new-ay") is an isolated Polynesian island country located in the South Pacific east of Tonga, south of Samoa, and west of the Cook Islands. The island is about 18 km (11 mi) in diameter, surrounded by a coral reef. The population on the island is about 1400. Niue is described as a "self-governing state in free association with New Zealand," not a colony but not quite an independent nation. The village of Alofi, on the west coast, is the capital.
The territory has no traditional lighthouses, but there are several minor lights. It is likely that Maritime New Zealand has assisted in the installation and maintenance of these lights.
Admiralty numbers are from volume K of the Admiralty List of Lights & Fog Signals. U.S. NGA List numbers are from Publication 111.
