We were staying right on the beach at the Muri Beach Club hotel and the views across the lagoon were stunning! The water is shallow and crystal clear and no or few rocks. We didn't see any fish here at Muri, but I believe they can be found further south. That didn't bother my daughter and I as we saw... More

Beautiful lagoon, looks exactly like a magazine picture. Nice place to go if you want to swim, but if your after wildlife and great snorkelling your best bet is to snorkel the Marine Reserve at The Rarotongan or our favourite place was out front of the Palm Grove Beach resort where we stayed...amazing snorkelling!

Good for snorkelling but not the best on the island. Great for kids though as the water isn't very deep so they could happily get out to where the fish were by themselves.

Sitiing on the deck of Sails cafe looking out over the beautiful lagoon at tropical islands is just fabulous on a sunny day. The lagoon is shallow and very safe for children. Just nothing to see snorkeling wise

Love the fact that it is so calm, you can swim or canoe out to the islands and a great place for snorkeling if you prefer still water without to much coral. There can be a reasonable current in certain places. The water is such a fantastic colour and picture perfect surroundings.

We stayed at Sunhaven Beach Bungalows but just visited Muri Logoon upon recommendation from the locals. It is truly a great lagoon for swimming & snorkeling and even strolling up & down the beach. The water was warm and crystal clear. Just a beautiful breathtaking beach & lagoon!
