Owner description: One of the island's most beautiful locations, this lagoon and beach is a popular destination for swimming and snorkeling.

We spent the day here snorkeling but hardly saw any fish at all. That was a bit disappointing. It's a beautiful setup and lots of activity which explains the lack of fish. Great to suntan here and hire canoes or those paddle boards.

Absolutely stunning waters with great coral life. Cruise it with your love or by yourself, or just lay about. I needed water shoes for the sea slugs everywhere (gross) but paddling out to the tiny lagoon islands was unforgettable

Kited here with good wind but a bit gusty with the islands disturbing the consistency of wind. Beautiful clear water but probably better consistent wind sth of this spot

We were here 3 years ago and disappointed with the fish life, but have noticed more fish this time. This was confirmed by the locals as well.

By far the best place to stay, swim, eat and relax. Staying right on Muri is a real treat. The colour of the water is beautiful. You can swim, snorkel, lay around and just take it all in. Plenty of choices for food. Great cafes - LBV is a good one. My favourite meal was at Sandals restaurant and barefoot bar at the Pacific Resort. Further down the road is the Fruits of Rarotonga they make the best burgers and toasties. Night markets were on Wed & Thurs night. Go to the little dairy store, it sells Heineken for $2.50 a bottle compared to $5 a bottle in the mini bar. There is a Westpac ATM and also an ANZ a little further down past the Pacific Resort. There is an Internet cafe to buy some cheap data and Island bike hire to get your scooter. This is our 2nd trip to Rarotonga and when we return we will definitely be staying on Muri Beach again.
