Rarotonga Map


to Avarua Map

Hotels and resorts are found all around Rarotonga with the largest concentrations where the swimming and snorkeling are best - at Arorangi on the west and Muri in the southeast.

The northeast is largely free of resorts due to the absense of good beaches.

The airport, seaport, and main business center are in the northwest.

Rarotonga is a high volcanic island with many jungle-covered peaks and a rigorous hiking trail across the center of the island.
