Rarotonga Photo Journal


Over the mid-term university break I spent 10 days in Rarotonga with my family. We rented a house in Ngatangiia, five minutes drive from Muri beach and ten minutes drive from Avarua, the central township. The weather wasn’t exactly our best friend but I enjoyed a really relaxing holiday. Check out my best holiday snaps.

I had a really great time in Rarotonga and I would definitely recommend it as a holiday destination if you’re looking for somewhere to relax and unwind.
