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.
