Rarotonga Things to Do: 68 reviews and 177 photos


On the south-western corner of Rarotonga is Aro?a Beach which became our favourite hangout spot on Rarotonga. The beach isn?t as crowded or as developed as Muri Beach and while still pretty popular you will normally be able to have a stretch of beach to yourself. The water of the lagoon here is glorious and filled with shoals of curious fish. Snorkelling here is much better than at Muri and the water is clearer.
Aro?a beach stretches around the south west corner of the island and the most popular part of Aro?a Beach is near the Rarotongan Beach Resort. This beach is not overcrowded but it is popular so if you want peace and quiet you can move further north along the beach which although narrower than at the Rarotongan Beach Resort section of beach, it is more peaceful and tranquil. The sunsets here are spectacular!
