1) Eat break­fast

Nelson Mail - - TRAVEL -

Here’s a bril­liant way to be­gin your day in Raro – take a slice of lo­cally-grown paw­paw, peel one of the is­land’s thin-skinned la­dyfin­ger ba­nanas, squeeze the juice of a seg­ment of lime over it all, and eat. It’s de­li­cious sun­shine on a plate.

It’s in­ex­pen­sive, too. Right now in Raro­tonga paw­paws are as lit­tle as $3 at any shop or road­side stall, and ba­nanas are around $6 for a bunch of six or eight. Limes are around $6 a kilo­gram.

Most days we fig­ured that was eas­ily in­ex­pen­sive enough to go for sec­onds.

Raro­tonga is the per­fect choice for trav­ellers seek­ing sun, surf and seren­ity.

There’s plenty of fresh food to pur­chase along Ara Tapu.
