Mutalau is in the northern end of Niue, it is not far about 15 minutes drive from Alofi. Mutalau is very unique because of its contributin to the developments of Niue. In 1846 on 26 October its ancestors decided to accept Pastor Peniamina to introduce and teach the gospel to its people before it spread to the four corners of Niue. This is the begining of civilization in Niue. The Uluvehi landing is the landing place of christianity, this is a very nice spot for relaxation, at the moment there is a recreation and eco-tourist building there with a bar and toilet/bathroom facilities. There is also a kitchen there with plans to open for service at certain days and hours to serve visitors to the area. At the moment the Mutalau Village Fiafia Night tour is held on Saturday afternoons but depend on bookings. There are also plans to build traditional style accommodation in the area, as the basic services (rest rooms, bar and cooking) are now available in the main recreation/eco-tourist building. You can drive down to Uluvehi from the village green.
