Avarua Rarotonga Cook Islands Cruise Port Guide

Location:

This is a tender port.

The mountain scenery all around Rarotonga is truly beautiful, but along the north-east coast, it is at its most dramatic. The beaches along this stretch are wild and in places covered with pebbles and dead coral. Swimming here is not safe but the coast is good for beachcombing, fishing and watching the waves crash over the reef.

Sightseeing:

Avarua (meaning "Two Harbours" in Cook Islands Māori) is a town and district in the north of the island of Rarotonga, and is the national capital of the Cook Islands

Avarua is the main town on Rarotonga and extends east from the airport. The town is quite small with a few supermarkets, two banks both with ATM machines (ANZ and Westpac), several restaurants / cafes, internet booths and lots of small boutiques specializing in the sale of black pearls and fine handicrafts. Avarua is well worth a visit, especially on Saturday morning when the open air market takes place. You'll find everything from brightly colored sarongs (wrap around dresses) to flower garlands, fresh fish, and tropical fruits.
