Great sandy beach, with shades of blue, famous snorkelling area. Best part is probably in front of the Polynesian Resort with a wide stretch of sand with shallow water.

Great snorkeling with many beautiful fish immediately upon entering the water. They get prettier and bigger the further in you go. The whole place looks like one big postcard!

This beach, like most beaches on Rarotonga, is covered in soft sand with the odd bit of corral. The water is clear and full of fish.

We visited most of the beach areas of Raratonga and found this delightful location to be the best. Particularly when there was a bit of a wind from the South. Great snorkelling, perfectly clear water and very few people.
