There is a wide range of sports enjoyed on the Cook Islands, and Rarotonga is no exception. Water sports are particularly popular because of the warm climate.

Water Sports

Just down the road from Sea Change Villas is the famous Muri Lagoon. This is the centre for sailing and kite boarding. Personal tuition for kite surfing is a great way to get started if you haven’t tried it before. Drop in on Saturday afternoons to The Sailing Club at Muri Beach and you are more than likely to get a crew position on one of the two or three man race boats. Or if that is not you, why not have a cool drink on the deck at the Sailing Club and sit back and watch the remote control boat racing. A lot of fun.


If golf is your game even if you are only a casual golfer, don’t miss out on enjoying the nine holes at the Rarotongan Golf Club. The club is open six days a week from 8am and you can hire a half set of clubs and green fees from NZD$35.00. The club house is ideal for that cool drink after a warm round of golf.


The Rarotongan and Edgewater Resorts have tennis courts available for hire including a range of quality rental equipment i.e. rackets, balls and shoes.


The Rarotongan Squash Club has two courts available six days a week but you would need to bring your own equipment.


The Rarotongan Bowling Club boasts an international standard bowling green. Saturday is roll up day when all visitors are welcome. Starting time is from 10am and 1pm with white dress code required. A mufti dress is from 4pm, Monday to Friday. Green fees are NZD$1.00 as are the hire balls. They also boast a licensed bar for refreshments.



Rarotonga has no snakes, wild animals or poisonous insects which makes it ideal for exploring. Walking or jogging the many tracks and roads of Rarotonga is very popular for visitors to the island. Don’t forget your walking or jogging shoes.
