The tropical fruit smoothie and a burger did us very nicely when we stopped by on our scooter. This little place is situated by the lagoon where some of the best snorkeling is, fish galore. I brought some fish food (dry bread) for $2 from Fruits and had the fish swarming around my only a metre or two in from... More

Beef is not plentiful in Raro and you'll see it's often run out. Locals are more accustomed to eating Lamb/Goat for their red meat as they are farmed here on the islands in bigger numbers, or the more ubiquitous chicken/pork/fish. Staying just a short drive from Fruits of Raro, which has a beautiful public beach on the Muri Lagoon that... More

they offer yummy burgers and refreshing smoothies. Very casual, sit on the porch or take away. When your done walk directly across the road to one of the best spots for snorkelling. e always make sure we stop in at Fruits of Rarotonga when we are on the island.

Get a smoothie, and then enjoy your day in the amazing turquoise water, snorkeling and swimming. There's parking on either side of the road, and a cool little beach to relax on.

Stopped here a couple of times for the smoothies, really refreshing, also the snorkelling was really great. If you are a confident snorkeler and swimmer you can swim out to where the glass bottom boats tie up and spend quite a bit of time checking out the various sea creatures. Saw plenty of large blue starfish and a few clams... More

The Fruits of Rarotonga do have the best smoothies on the island. They also do really good burgers and chips and reasonable prices. The snorkelling across the road is some of the best and the shop will also look after your bags while you are in the water rather than leaving them on the beach.

I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided it give it a go. I am a smoothie addict and love them. My smoothie was just okay but I wouldn't go back. The service was quite rude. They do hire out snorkeling gear for the beach. And they sell yum jam.

My husband and I had smoothies and they were great. We also had burgers. Mine was with bacon and egg and it was delicious. Also the prices were really quite low compared to lunch in the resorts.
