Avarua Holidays Overview


Avarua is the capital city and administrative centre of the Cook Islands and is located on Rarotonga, the capital and largest island of the Cook Islands. A beautiful and tropical destination to holiday as the tropical sun shines all year round. The local people are both welcoming and hospitable. Relax on the beautiful beaches, take a stroll or swim in the safe lagoon waters that surround the island. Enjoy kayaking and boating, game fishing, snorkelling in the waters. Explore the interior of the island by horse back or try mountain trekking.
The name for the island, Rarotonga, is supposed to have been mentioned by an ancient Tahitian navigator. Raro meaning ‘down’ and Tonga meaning ‘south’, he mentioned that he was on an island in the north and that he was heading ‘down south’ to another island. His destination, Raratonga, and the name has stayed ever since.
It is only a short walk or ride from Avarua to visit the other small villages on the island. A small island, Rarotonga is only 31 kilometres to travel around the island. On the southeast of the island, Muri Beach is very popular with its 8 kilometres of sandy white beach.
