My partner (unfortunately deceased in May) and I have spent several vacations on this wonderful laid back island. Our last three vacations, out of seven, have been spent at the newly constructed Shangri-la Cottages on Muri Beach. These cottages are completely furnished with kitchen facilities (But if you wish to eat at restaurants ,the nearby Flame Tree is highly recommended. ) .Elliot and his extremely friendly Black Lab, Princess, are helpful gracious hosts!
There are two-three local stores nearby, but it is very easy to board the hourly bus into the main centre---all of which the air-conditioning is open windows---a joke of a delightfully humourous driver.
An ATM is now available there---the currency being their own, but NZ currency is accepted at par.
We became avid snorkellers in the lagoon. It is reasonably shallow with little in tidal motion----a great feeling of safety for me, a beginning swimmer. As well our morning walks along the beach were another habit.
South Pacific beats Hawaii any day!
