Several locals and tourists indicated Tikioki Beach at Titikaveka is arguably the best snorkeling you can find on Rarotonga. Along with the picturesque and beautiful scenery, you can swim with sea life as it is a marine preserve and protected on the island. The water...More

Park at the Fruits of Rarotonga. Need to swim out a bit to where the water is turquoise to escape the fine sand but it isn't far at all. As with most of the reef it isn't very deep. Safe area away from the channels...More

Easy find and excellent, safe snorkelling. Don’t feed the fish. Wear reef shoes when not wearing fins

Our preferred site for snorkelling in the Cooks, always come here at least twice on our annual tour. On this occasion good visibility and much variety in fish.

Stayed on this beach for several days, lovely and tidy, lots of wandering dogs, but friendly enough, most just wanting to play. Not as good as Aroa Beach for fish life.

Titikaveka is picture perfect - it's paradise! We snorkeled here every day during our stay and the beach was always quiet. It was interesting to see the thousands of little crabs that come out on the sand when it gets dark.

This is the best part of Raro, it's snorkelling is fantastic, it's safe for kids... simply heaven on earth. If you aren't staying close by Titikaveka beach then pack your snorkels and go for a day trip. It's not busy, lovely and relaxed.

We pulled up in our scooters, put our backpacks on the beach and went snorkeling for hours and saw hundreds of fish. There were maybe 5 other people on the beach, and nobody close, so it felt like we had it all to ourselves.
