best sandy beach on the island

Excellent access, safe and sheltered with beautiful sunsets. Some reasonable snorkelling opportunities including several sightings of a moray eel.

We found the snorkeling here was very good, particularly opposite Fruits of Rarotonga. Head for where the glass bottom boats are and there are giant schools of fish. We also saw Eagle Rays a bit further west. Although this is really good for snorkeling, we found the best to be outside The Rarotongan Resort (the beach just north of the... More

This was the most beautiful snorkeling spot. Lots of fish and very clear water. A place you must visit whilst on the island.

The children went snorkelling twice at this beach and saw plenty of fish every time.Both times it was quiet which is a bonus too and it seemed very clean.

This is a beautiful place for snorkeling and enjoying the blue waters of Rarotonga. The beautiful white sand had many rocks and shells to explore. I collected a few beautiful ones to take home to my kids.

There was no excuse left to visit Raro again - we'd used birthdays, wedding anniversary - so we just went anyway. Our previous 2 visits were in November/December - this time we thought we'd try April to see if there was much seasonal difference. Slightly cooler perhaps, although still warm (28 most days) however there was a prevailing south easterly... More

The beach is nice with lovely water but if you want to snorkel head to the Arora side, it's much much nicer. The reef has been badly damaged by people walking on it and breaking it here.
