The island of Rarotonga is the vibrant hub of the Cook Islands and offers holidaymakers an enormous amount of choice. Only 32 kilometres in circumference, it takes less than an hour to drive, scooter or bus right around the island – it’s so easy you will feel like you’re on one big resort!
With 50+ cafes and restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, bustling markets and endless adventures through the stunning landscapes, both on land and in the lagoon, there is never a shortage of things to see and do.
Take advantage of the stunning landscape and relax on the beach with the striking emerald green mountains as your backdrop. Interrupt your peaceful relaxation with dips into the magnificent lagoon and allow your day to roll by with the island tides.
If adventure is more your pace, why not partake is some water activities? Snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding, lagoon sailing, fishing, diving, surfing and more are all available. On land, there’s a range of activities and attractions from art galleries and cultural centres to eco bike rides, 4WD tours of the interior and dinner in a local’s home. There is so much to see and discover on Rarotonga and at the end of the day simply laze in a hammock with a cocktail.
