Weather in May

Hi there,

My partner and I are visiting Rarotonga for the first time in May.

Just wondering what we can expect weather wise? I've heard that it is the start of the dry season?

Also, we are staying at Muri Beachcomber. It looks lovely. Has anyone had any experience there?

Thanks for your help,

Hi Corkgirlontour

May is a lovely time of year - the humidity is lower, but the weather is lovely and warm and the lagoon very pleasant for swimming.

I've stayed twice at Muri Beachcomber in the past - a very nice small property and well located for restaurants in the area. If you're intending to use the excellent bus service there's a bus stop right outside the entrance.

Have a look at the reviews and if you've any other questions ask away. I also suggest you contact Cardiffbeachbums who stays there just about every year.

Have a look at the webcam thread - you'll get a view of the lagoon not far from where you'll be staying.

Kia Orana Corkgirlontour, welcome to the forum.

Weather in May can be a mix of showers and sunshine. For several years now, our weather hasn't been settled, with drier summers occurring, and more precipitation spread over winter months. Hopefully you'll experience some sunny days during your visit. Would pay to bring a light shower-proof jacket just in case.

Muri village where the Beachcomber is located, always has a lot happening within it's golden-mile. You'll be within the centre of activity, which is great from an entertainment and lagoon-based activities perspective.

Enjoy your visit. Kia manuia.
