The most populated island in the Cook Islands, Rarotonga's rugged volcanic beauty and tropical lagoons is what sets it apart from the rest.

To come up close with a variety of tropical fish and corals, there's the opportunity to go snorkelling in the surrounding calm waters. With lush green mountains in the centre of Rarotonga, there's an array of scenic attractions too, including the needle shaped rock, ‘Te Rua Manga' and ‘Wigmore Falls'.
