Kayaking

Kayaks may come free with your resort. If not, head to Captain Tama’s Aquasprotz Centre on Muri Beach (Muri lagoon is a delightful spot to paddle about). To rent a two person kayak on Aitutaki, head to the Samade Bar at Ootu Beach – phone 31-526 to check they have one available.

Captain Fantastic will tell you the history of Aitutaki while guiding you through Aitutaki’s enormous lagoon. A lunch of fresh fish and tropical fruit awaits on Honeymoon Island. Spend the day enjoying one of the most beautiful lagoons in the South Pacific. More info at www.kiaoranacruise.com

Kids Clubs

The two best kids clubs on Rarotonga are at the Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa and the Pacific Resort with programs of indoor and outdoor activities. For children under 3 you will need to hire a babysitter.

Kii Kii Motel

If you want good budget self-contained motel accommodation near Avarua (a half hour walk), this property could suit. It’s clean and comfortable with a nice pool overlooking a rocky beach (there are no good beaches on the north side of Rarotonga).
