A Week in Rarotonga

This week in Rarotonga is a gem. Accommodation is oceanfront, facing a white sandy beach that is swimmable at all tides. Your resident hosts will show you corners of the island not seen on a regular
holiday. Each day has an activity with half a day to relax - as is the norm on an island holiday. Join a group of likeminded travellers and book a week away while the water is still warm in Rarotonga.
