My husband and I are about to head to Raro for a much deserved break (it’s not much fun living and working in an earthquake zone!) and have a couple of questions before we go.
1) Unfortunately due to the quake we had to change our travel plans and are now staying while low tide is in the middle of the day. I love to snorkel and would like to know if there are any snorkelling spots that aren’t affected by the tides. We are staying at Sunset Resort and I am keen to snorkel at Black Rock – is this affected by the tide? Also, how many hours either side of high tide can you snorkel?
2) I see from previous posts that it is a good idea to book your Aitutaki day trip once you arrive in Raro rather than before you leave. Do you get the best deal by going direct to Air Raro or should we go to one of the travel agents?
3) My husband and I love to play tennis and have seen on previous posts that there is a tennis court somewhere near the Sunset Resort. I can’t find it on the map or on Google earth. Is it nearby and can anyone gain access to it? I don’t really want the hassle of carting our tennis gear over if it’s a decent hike away and it’s for club members only.
Thanks – and I look forward to your replies.
