Muri Beach, Rarotonga
Muri Beach Pictures


Muri Beach is one of the most beautiful parts of Rarotonga, courtesy of a stunning view across turquoise waters on to coconut palm-covered islands.

It has a lovely beach, which is perfect for swimming, and in the far distance you see ocean breakers rolling on to the coral atoll that protects it.

Rarotonga's lagoon is at its widest at Muri and this allows for
an excellent array of water sports and adventure activities there.

Captain Tama's Lagoon Cruises is based at Muri, as well as Ariki Adventiures - who offer Sea Scooters, kayaking and Stand-up Paddleboarding.

You can parasail, sailboard, snorkel, kayak or swim to your heart's content in relative safety at Muri.

The wind can pick up at times, but usually the waters are reasonably calm.

There are a huge number of places to eat at Muri, which has become the tourist magnet of Rarotonga.

Muri Beach offers plenty of accommodation from budget and self-catering accommodation to resort rooms. - Richard Moore
