Kiwis are grateful for the Quarantine-free travel bubble between the Cook Islands and New Zealand when it is working. It offers our ocean swimmers the opportunity to enjoy a six-nights Pacific swim holiday in Rarotonga.
Book your travel to arrive in Rarotonga on 18 June and depart on 24 June
We are staying at the Te Puka estate apartments in Ngatangiia, a short drive to the world famous Muri beach. The accommodation is made up of four apartments.
Apartment 1 - Poolside: Queen room + Open plan lounge with 2 single beds

We are swimming everyday, some days there are two swims. We will work our way from Avarua to Muri Beach. For the long swimmers, you are looking at 4-5km per day. Those looking for a shorter distance will be swimming closer to shore. There is one day we will swim with the locals at the daily lunchtime Boiler Swim based out of Trader Jacks.
In our swim free time, we will take in as much of Rarotonga as we can. Here are the tours that we are booked for:
Turtle tour with Ariki Adventures (Muri Beach)
Rarotonga Island night and meal at one of the Resorts
Cross Island track to the Needle (7.6km)
Tours are optional.
Swimming everyday, long swims and short swims

It sits tranquil and enchanting amidst a Citrus/Paw Paw Banana and Avocado Grove with delightful views into the magnificent Turangi Valley and onto the mountain peaks above, with great sunsets into the Valley and only 5 minutes to Muri Lagoon.
The first accommodation at Te Puka Estate is now fully booked. The good news is we have secured new accommodation nearby. The cost of the new housing is similar but may differ. Please send us a message with your requirements and we can quote you.
The estate is located just off the main road in Turangi/Ngatangiia. Te Puka Estate is a growers paradise with Plantations of Taro/Maniota/Paw Paw and Kumara. It's green, quiet and the deep bush and mountains around you is strangely comforting, the scenery is lush and absolutely beautiful.
