Boasting picturesque beaches and lush mountain views, Rarotonga offers fun water and leisure activities as well as excellent walking treks. Beautiful Rarotonga The lagoon surrounding Rarotonga is a shallow haven for people of all swimming abilities and is very popular with families and keen snorkellers. Nude and topless bathing are deemed offensive in the Polynesian culture and visitors are reminded to wear appropriate swimming attire when visiting the beaches. The beaches on the north/north eastern side of the island are best suited for surfers as the reef lies close to the shore. It is recommended that you surf with a local. On the north coast of Rarotonga, about five minutes drive from the international airport, Avarua Town is a pleasant seaside township with a number of restaurants and boutique shops. The Saturday morning market is a fantastic place to buy local produce, such as fruits, vegetables, handcrafted items and souvenirs. There are also two international banks and a local bank with ATMs and supermarkets available here. MURIBEACH Set on the south-east corner of Rarotonga, Muri Beach is a popular spot for watersports, including kitesurfing and Spectacular Marine Life Boasting the most pristine waters in the world as well as a stunning range of marine life, the Cook Islands draw divers and snorkellers from all over the globe.

Then, over in the east, is the long, musket-shaped island of New Ireland and in between is the large island of New Britain. Together, those three are the “main islands” of Papua New Guinea with the other 600+ smaller islands that make up the country arrayed around them. The lifeforce of the Coral Triangle’s biodiversity is a complex network of nutrient-rich regional and equatorial currents. Unique to the six countries that form the Coral Triangle, only Papua New Guinea is touched by all those currents making it a true biodiversity hotspot!
