We arrived late the night before and had no idea what the beach was like. Next morning we awoke to a magnificent sunrise, with beautiful white sand, palm trees swaying in the balmy breeze. One word. Paradise.

Some of the resort beaches seemed pretty good (Rarotongan, Pac Resort), but for the general public this area around the south east is the beach to visit. We stopped opposite an Adventist school sign and it was great for swimming, just sticking to the sandy...More

Best beach on Raro without a doubt. So stay at the hotel on the best beach and that is the Moana Sands!

Beautiful quiet beaches without the crowds that gather at Muri. You can basically stop off along anywhere and jump in for a swim. So nice if you want to avoid crowds.

Awesome snorkeling, clear water, quiet. Beautiful fish and coral. Loved kayaking, swimming and snorkeling in these clear, calm, warm, colorful waters.

I would like recommendations for accommodation on Titikaveka beach. I've read many reviews saying they had lovely private places right on the sand but didn't name them.

We stayed at sea change villas. Beautiful and private. Have stayed there on two seperate occasions. Would definitely stay again :)
We are thinking of staying in self contained accomodation in Titkaveka. Is there somewhere close to get supplies and are there some local restaurants?
