Best snorkeling on the island - need to go out to the buoys, where the cages are placed by the boat tour companies and the eco conservation people.

This beach was close to our accommodation. With parking toilets and picnic tables in the shade. The beach itself is white sand shaded by coconut trees. We arrived, beach empty, quiet apart from the waves crashing onto the reef. Paradise just for us we thought?...More

Crystal clear water full of marine life. Lovely location, not many people around and beautiful surrounds. Sand crabs, palm trees and a gentle breeze.

this is still our all time favourite beach in rarotonga, even after 15 visits to the island. always teaming with fish life as well as some great sandy areas for swimming. more often than not you have the beach to yourself! highly recommended

We stayed at Raina Apartments and walked across the road to this wonderful, shaded, clean, almost empty beach. We were told snorkelling to the left was good. We were happy to loll around in the water.

The crystal clear water and bathtub temperature make this a great place to snorkel. The fish are plentiful and spectacular. Opposite The Fruits of Rarotonga, there is room for parking and picnic tables. We will be back again next year.

Stunning beach and great for a swim. Nice deep sections so you don’t have to worry about the coral too much. Nice snorkeling and a great vista. Beautiful spot!
