We will have 1 day in October 2017 in Rarotonga from a Paul Gauguin cruise. We were hoping to rent a car for the day and drive around the island to beautiful Muri beach and elsewhere on the island but we are quite concerned about all the water issues and contamination we are reading about in Rarotonga. Can anyone who has been recently comment on this as we love the water and that was our primary reason for selecting this cruise over others as it had a Port day in Rarotonga.
Are there other clean, safe and beautiful public beaches on the island we can go to for snorkeling?
We did a Raro Safari excursion when last there in 2014 but decided that the inland ride was not our thing. We so longed to be in the water and are very disappointed to hear there are water issues at beautiful Muri :(
