For divers, the outer reefs surrounding Rarotonga and Aitutaki are remarkable places boasting 30 metres plus year-round visibility. Some of the best experiences include suggestive canyons, caves, long tunnels, towering drop-offs (some of them up to 4,000 metres), swim-through under and through coral reefs and shipwrecks such as the Alexander.

Do & See

With such a perfect climate and beautiful water it is easy to understand the local saying “Cook Islands people are born of the sea”. Here, in fact, most activities are connected to the sea: there are safe places for snorkelling, swimming and diving for all ages and abilities. Rarotonga’s lagoon, around Muri lagoon, Aro’a Beach, Black Rock and Titikaveka are all excellent beaches. The Muri lagoon, in particular, is one of the Cook Islands´ most beautiful locations. It is fantastic for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and windsurfing.
