“Must Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Muri Lagoon is the place to spend time swimming and snorkelling - just gorgeous. Think of doing one of Koka's lagoon cruises - that was just great.

“Love Muri Lagoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Beautiful place to swim and snorkel, the glass bottom lagoon cruises go from here and they take you to where all the coloured fish are then for a bbq at the island across from the shores of lagoon. Very safe swimming, kayaking and snorkelling here.

“polluted?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Was told by a local that the water quality was poor here and that was the was it appeared. Fun walking over to the island at low tide, which is also where the lagoon cruise has lunch. Went to the muri club hotel to get a cocktail and nice place to people watch but not the best for snorkling by a long mark.

“"FANTABULOS!!!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

During my stay on Rarotonga I visited the Muri market and I met a few people from around the globe and just enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the Sweet and Sour Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken at the market and loved it. Everybody should try these meals. I would recommend this as the "BEST"
