About Rarotonga

Surfing in Raro is pretty underground at the moment so crowds are scarce but waves are plenty!

As there are no specialized surf camps/resorts on the island, the best way to set your self up is with standard hotel accommodation and to hire a car to travel to the breaks.

There are a number of surf breaks around the island as Raro picks up both southern and northern swells. During November-April, variable north-west winds take over from the traditional south-east trade winds which prevail during April-November.

Nearly all of the breaks in Raro are over coral reef and are best surfed at mid to high tide with a few exceptions on the eastern coast.

There is a variety of accommodation options to choose from with most of the hotels being situated right on the beautiful beaches.
