best beach in Aitutaki and place to stay

Hi we are wanting to visit in June next year with a 4 yr old and 1 yr old. Where on the Island has the best swimming beach and is also safe for little ones? Recommended Accommodation for family of 2 adults and 2 little ones? I've had a look at resort prices and they look very expensive. We are also staying in Muri Beach Rarotonga for over a week too so want to add on Aitutaki as never been there before. We've been to Muri Beach before and like this spot with children.

Thanks heaps

Kia Orana Brett & Naomi, The night snorkel is one I'm not familiar with. Where did you read about it and who is it? Matriki (matriki@aitutaki.net.ck) advertises snorkeling outside the reef and Black Pearl charters (tekotia@aitutaki.net.ck) also take people outside the reef.

The hike to the highest point ( Maungapu) is very doable but not walkable from Samade unless you consider a 5K walk (each way) a pleasant hike. It's best to drive to the base opposite Paradise Cove lodges and walk up from there. It's only 124M high so not all that challenging. The last bit is a little steep and gravely so you need to wear good walking shoes. The second highest point (Piraki) can be driven to. It actually has better views than Maungapu since the highest point has become somewhat over grown.

The weather lately has been mixed with nice days interspersed with rain. No cyclones on the horizon currently.
