Located on the southeast side of the island of Rarotonga, Muri Beach is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cook Islands. Picture white sandy beaches stretching along the coast of the island, fringed with palm trees and the gentle waves of the lagoon—the perfect place to go for a swim. You might even be joined by some of the local dogs, like our travel expert Shannon!
