Stopped here while scootering around the island and fell in love immediately. So beautiful, the water is so clear and blue!

Awesome safe swimming, paddling, sailing, snorkelling. Put this on your bucket list. We stayed at Beachcomber self contained bungalow. Stepping down onto the beach every day was wonderful.

Muri Beach is on the lagoon, crystal waters, great temperature, great snorkling. Go there and relax, swim, sunbake and just chill out. One really needs to hire a care or bike while on the island.

This beach is very safe for children. There is not any coral in close to shore. Canoes, yachts and longboarding is done here.

swimming for all the family right there. Walk to the outer islands for snorkelling and viewing tropical fish. Plenty of restaurant varieties to walk to. Stores have come along way since last here 2 yrs ago so you can buy cereal, spreads, bread, chips, drinks everything you need rather than having to bring it with you. Plenty of scooter/car rentals,... More

The lagoon bay here is fringed with trees and is beautiful. There is a boat club worth some photos for their designs. The cafe has a nice deck to sit out on for food or a nice cold beer. It is more commercial than some other areas but worth a visit

Beautiful lagoon to SUP or kayak around, with the best snorkeling behind Motu Taakoka. Great beach to hang around or grab a bite at one of the restaurants or the Sailing club. RIP Roger the Eel.

The Muri Lagoon is one of my favorite places anywhere in the world! The warms were usually glassy-calm and warm; the sand pleasantly soft; and the scenery first class! If you're in the mood for some snorkeling, there are plenty of critters, from the commonly-seen sea cucumbers to pretty blue/violet sea stars, to fish of various sizes. If you feel... More
