Trip Planner: South Pacific / Cook Islands / Southern Cook Islands / Rarotonga / Avarua / Punanga Nui
Do not miss the exciting cultural experience of Punanga Nui, a sprawling market offering produce, crafts, and much more. Traditional music sets the scene for a vibrant atmosphere, and you can spot dancers here and there while shopping. Freshly caught fish, honey, fruit, vegetables, and tropical flowers are all locally produced. If you do not plan to make your own dinner, head to the cooked-food tents instead. Sellers offer everything from mouthwatering fruit smoothies to kebabs. If you want to pick up some souvenirs, choose from pearls and shells, whale-bone necklaces, quilts, and sarongs. Put Punanga Nui on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Avarua visit planning website.
Punanga Nui reviews
Nice market with lots going on. Loads of different things to see and buy and you can book up your trips here too, directly with the provider. Nice range of drinks and snacks available.
Great place to experience island dances and music. Lots of food choices and awesome smoothies. Make sure you get there early around 9am.
