Avarua Flights Guide
The South Pacificís Cook Islands are so named for the British explorer Henry Cook, one of the first Europeans to visit them. The Cook Islands are a dependency of New Zealand, and are administered by New Zealand officials. These tropical islands and atolls have their capital at Rarotonga, an island in the south. The town is called Avarua.
The Cook Islands comprise one of New Zealandís most important national parks. The entirety of the island group, which runs north to south, is protected. The most popular things to do in the islands are scuba diving and snorkeling. There are charter sailboats that take visitors to other islands in the chain. Avarua itself is not very interesting, but Rarotonga is an island surrounded by a beautiful reef teeming with life. Divers can visit marine caves, shipwrecks, Black Rock islet and more. As for sites on land, one can visit the Maire Nui Gardens, a vast botanical garden that presents the local varieties of fruit and other flora in one place. For the more adventurous travelers, Rarotonga offers a number of trails that lead hikers through the volcanic terrain of the interior. From the heights, the turquoise grade of the reef is breathtaking.
