Location + Surroundings
This site is located on the western side of the sun-kissed island of Rarotonga, one of the beautiful islands that make up the Cook Islands. The Cook Islands are a group of 15 islands in the Pacific Ocean. The islands are situated in the center of the Polynesian Triangle and have a total population of approximately 16,000 people, attracting about 90,000 visitors a year. The Cook Islands offer a unique opportunity to experience the complete tranquility of a tropical island with no hype and no sky rises. The islands hold incredible charm and beauty, and this is enhanced by the friendliness of the people. It is a very uncomplicated life, with an easy pace.
Rarotonga island is circular in shape, with a mountain peak being the main feature in the middle. It is covered in lush green rain forest, which spreads to the white sandy beaches out to the clear blue lagoon waters. The lagoon is almost completely surrounded by a reef and is a great and safe place for people to swim. The island is only 32km wide, with only two main roads, so everything is easy to get to! The main town in Rarotonga is Avarua, and it is the commercial center of the Cook Islands. There is a good selection of shops, providing for most needs required while on the island.
- Horseback riding
- Scuba diving
Although you can relax by the swimming pool or the beach, Rarotonga has a number of activities to keep you entertained both on land and sea. The interior of the island is blessed with lush native bush, whilst the main road hugs the seas around Rarotonga. Three-quarters of Rarotonga is encircled by the ancient inner road, Ara Metua. This is approximately 29 km long, was constructed in the 11th century, and most of its length is paved with large stone slabs.
Tours and excursions abound, from hiking and horse riding, to scenic flights and sailing. If you prefer a more relaxed vacation you can enjoy a round of golf at Rarotonga’s beautifully maintained 9 hole course.
Between June and September you might be lucky enough to watch humpback whales from your own beachfront bungalow! Alternatively, deep sea fishing is within minutes of leaving the harbor. Experience the excitement of fishing for Tuna, Mahimahi, Wahoo or, if you are lucky enough, the mighty Marlin.
Other island activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, dancing, seeing island shows, tennis, and sleeping on the beach!
Bicycle rentals are available nearby allowing you to take a casual 7 km ride to town. Motor scooters are a fun way to get around the island as well.
There are many restaurants and bars scattered all over the island. They offer a wide range of menus to suit a great variety of budgets. They range from high class international cuisine to cafes offering a coffee break and snack. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance, or guests can venture further a field very easily for a greater range of options. With so many restaurants, bars and cafes sprinkled around the island you’ll be spoiled for choice. Head off in search of fresh seafood and lush juicy fruit picked especially for you.
Alternatively, the Saturday morning market (Te Punanga Nui) is an event not to miss. With a variety of local fruit and vegetables, flowers, music, and crafts there’s something for locals and tourists alike. The market is Rarotonga’s social event of the week.
