At just 32 km in circumference, the size of the island makes Rarotonga so different. No matter where you are, the whole island is yours to enjoy. Most couples hire bikes, motor scooters or cars to go to town, a different resort, a restaurant or cafe or a different beach anytime they wish.
EXPLORING THE ISLAND
There are numerous activities and cultural experiences to enjoy in Rarotonga, as well as over 100 cafes, restaurants and a fantastic nightlife for you and your partner to experience. Popular activities include 4WD jungle tours, quad bike adventures, guided mountain treks and scenic flights.
Fabulous Muri lagoon also offers eco-tour cruises, kayaking, snorkelling, kite surfing, paddle boarding and swimming. The adventures really are endless - nature trails of native flora and bird habitats, scuba diving lessons and expeditions, deep sea fishing charters, wind surfing and kite surfing lessons.
You can also take a lagoon cruise, visit the Punanga Nui Markets on a Saturday for fresh produce and crafts, or for some electrifying gospel singing pop into a village church on a Sunday. You won’t want to miss the “Island Night” cultural shows or an intimate dining experience either – just you and your partner in a private cabana at the lagoon’s edge. If you’re keen to party, jump on a nightlife bus tour to the local hot spots.
