Titikaveka really is an amazing beach, showing the best of Rarotonga. Along with the Muri Lagoon, this is my favorite place to spend time relaxing, snorkeling and enjoying the best a tropical island can give you.

This is the best beach on the Island. You are met with coral white sands and the coral reef outcrops are enough so you see plenty of fish, yet far enough apart that you can swim easily. Was heaps better than Muri Beach which is covered in weed at the moment.

Great snorkelling location with fish very close to the shore. You can snorkel without going above your waist and still get a great experience. Take reef shoes, as the rocks are a little slippy.

Forget Muri. Thus is the nicest beach on Rarotonga. It has good depths for snorkling and fichte to see. It is also much less polluted by trash and garbage then other beaches on Rarotonga.

The snorkeling here is superb, especially at Fruits of Rarotonga. Only downside is that it tends to get the wind.

For watersports go to Muri but the snorkeling cannot be beaten at Titikaveka Beach. Before going out take a look where the dark shapes of coral are situated. That is where you want to go if you are after fish & corals. Otherwise enjoy the crystal clear water and easy beach access. Please take care of the corals, this place... More

I visit to the beach whenever i need a relaxation. The beach is wonderful and ideal place to watch sun dip. White sandy and wonderful view of sea waves which long away from beach.

Head to Muri for all your watersporting, but for good swimming and snorkelling Titikaveka is the best.
