Blue lagoons, coral reef, dense rainforests and volcanic wonders.

The largest of the Cook Islands, Rarotonga wows with its stunning natural beauty, considered some of the best of the South Pacific.

Here, you can dive into crystal-clear waters and witness the brilliant coral reef that surrounds the entire island. Head inland to explore tropical rainforests, home to unique plant and bird species found only in the Cook Islands and awe-inspiring volcanic peaks. Culture abounds with craft markets and village experiences, while modern luxury and conveniences are never far.

Best of all, Rarotonga is a launching point to the archipelago’s other islands. Make your way to the secluded lagoons of Aitutaki, the sacred caves of Mangaia, the twin lakes of Mitiaro and eco-adventures on Atiu. They’re all just a quick jump from Rarotonga, the heart of the Cook Islands.
