Rarotonga's rainiest months are January and March when you can expect 19 rainy days and 190mm overall. May has an average of 17 rainy days with an overall average rainfall of 140mm.

Rarotonga Hotels in May

As diverse as the visitors who land on its shores, Rarotonga accommodations range from chic boutiques to basic backpacker retreats. In common they share lagoon views, surrounding nature and a laid-back attitude that has drawn explorers to the isle for generations.

Muri Beach Club Hotel

An adults-only gem on the island's eastern shore, Muri Beach Club Hotel is steeped in sophisticated four-star style.

Enjoy gourmet Pacific Rim fare at a fine dining restaurant and linger over a tropical cocktail before lagoon views at the island-chic Lagoon Lounge.

Manuia Beach Resort

Perfectly positioned to take in sunsets on Rarotonga's west coast, Manuia Beach Resort offers a boutique-style getaway on the white sands of Manuia Beach. The four-star sanctuary sits before a breathtaking backdrop of swaying palm trees and rich native flora.

Rarotonga Backpackers

Giving budget travellers plenty of options, Rarotonga Backpackers has four locations on the island.

A nearby collection of garden bungalows offers studio lodging amid nature that's just a short walk from the beach. A three-bedroom house with two bathrooms is available on the north coast where they also offer a handful of beachfront studio units with lagoon views.

Rarotonga Beach for May

Vaimaanga Beach is a top snorkelling spot on the island's southern side. The calm waters just off the coast teem with diverse tropical fish. The beach is also popular for other watersports. You can easily hire a kayak or a stand-up paddleboard to explore the waters surrounding the reef that protects the shore. Vaimaanga  has a reputation as a great spot for surfing. But be warned, it's only suitable for the adventurous wave riders. Those that brave the paddle out beyond the protected reef will be rewarded with some challenging waves.

Bars and Restaurants

Enjoy poolside dining, gourmet meals with your toes in the sand or on-the-go delights to devour before your choice of ocean views. However you opt to eat, Rarotonga's vast and varied restaurants are sure to serve.

Aqua Restaurant

A poolside eatery with Polynesian flair, Aqua Restaurant serves island-inspired cuisine at the Muri Beach Resort.

Things to do in Rarotonga in May

Shopping at Punanga Nui Market

While food huts offer an eclectic variety of cuisine, shopping is a big draw at the Punanga Nui Market. Browse a variety of Polynesian arts and crafts. Pick up a log drum or an eight-string ukelele. Both instruments are part of the traditional music found on the Cook Islands for generations. Get into island style with a floral dress or shirt. Purchase a tie-dyed sarong to bring some South Seas culture home with you. You can even find black pearls. The gems are harvested in the outer islands and incorporated into rings necklaces and bracelets.

Enjoy a Nature Hike

Some of Rarotonga's most-scenic spots are found along its white-sand beaches. But what about viewing the lush island from above? Take a trek to Te Rua Manga. The iconic rock spire known locally as "The Needle" sits at the centre of the volcanic island. Getting there isn't easy. A well-marked trail through dense nature does take a bit of stamina and you'll have to use roots to help you make your way to the top. Once there, you'll be rewarded with magnificent panoramic views of the island that will make you the envy of Instagram.

Join a Umukai Feast

Sharing a meal is one of the best ways to immerse in any culture. The Cook Islands welcome you to an "umukai" feast. Take a cultural village tour that includes a meal cooked in the time-honoured method of the Maori. "Umu" food is wrapped in banana leaves and placed in a shallow fire pit with volcanic rocks. It's then covered with a layer of leaves and steamed until ready to enjoy. Savour the earth-oven flavours as ancient stories are shared while traditional dancers and musicians perform before torchlight.

Discover a Muri Lagoon Motu

If you go to popular Muri Beach you're sure to notice the picturesque islands offshore. A great way to visit one of these islets, or "motu", is on a glass-bottom boat tour. Watch the undersea world pass before your eyes as you float through the azure waters, stopping for snorkelling along the route. You'll disembark on tiny Motu Koromiri, where you can stroll its secluded white sands and enjoy a lunch of barbecued fish right on the beach.
