8) Swim with the fish

The Timaru Herald - - TRAVEL -

Ev­ery­one knows that the snorkelling can be great in the la­goon sur­round­ing Raro­tonga.

And it’s free – well, maybe you have to buy some snorkelling gear, and don’t for­get to wear flip­pers or sand shoes, be­cause coral cuts can quickly get in­fected.

Many agree that the best snorkelling lo­ca­tion is the south­east­ern side of the is­land, par­tic­u­larly off a lit­tle shop called the Fruits of Raro­tonga.

But it doesn’t mat­ter where you go, be­cause if the con­di­tions are right you’ll spot plenty of trop­i­cal fish. And what can be bet­ter than splash­ing around in warm water un­der the Raro sun?

SUPPLIED

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

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