Stayed for 2 weeks and location, Raro, Muri beach and accommodation perfect for us. Ivor was helpful and informative and very approachable. We wanted peaceful location, privacy with home comforts and the bungalows more than met our expectation. The location is 1 minute walk to the best swimming beach on Raro. We took lilos/inflatables which was an excellent idea as used them loads. Best snorkeling in the marine reserve at Muri or opposite Fruits of Raro. Definately take your own snorkeling gear, as we did. Saw eels, parrot fish, flat fish, a sea snake, angel fish, blue star fish and loads more. Best snorkelling was by far on Aitutaki, where visibility was over 20 meters. Saw giant clams and amazing coral, although not as many fish as on Raro. Also saw a turtle whilst out on Aitutaki lagoon. Possibly the most beautiful island we have ever been to. Hired a moped and roads were all safe on both inner and outer road. Some connecting roads were dirt tracks. Waterfall a little small by NZ standards but we have been previously spoilt! Resterants all very nice although self catered most of the time. Did needles walk and got quite lost and managed to find our way to a different peak which was still spectacular. As you can guess, we did not take a guide! Did not do island night as did all this on previous trip to Samoa but took advantage of fire shows on beach for wedding parties which we randomly stumbled on!!! Was perfect relax which is what Raro is all about.
