We stayed at Jenny’s beach house right on the beach. The beach is sandy and never really busy, the snorkeling is good as well with plenty of rocks/coral to see the fish life.

Normally I head for Muri but Titikavaka is an awesome beach. Walking distance to Charlies for drinks and dinner too. As an aside my 2 other swimming and snorkelling spots were BlacK Rock and Fruits of Raro.

Our preferred site for snorkelling in the Cooks, always come here at least twice on our annual tour. On this occasion good visibility and much variety in fish.

Stayed on this beach for several days, lovely and tidy, lots of wandering dogs, but friendly enough, most just wanting to play. Not as good as Aroa Beach for fish life.
