Attractions near the Edgewater Resort

Snorkelling at sunset

The Edgewater Resort & Spa is not only Rarotonga’s largest resort with the most activities on offer; it’s also situated on the island’s sought-after west coast. Where pure white sand meets luminous blue waters and coral reefs fringe the lagoon just beyond, this is the perfect place to explore the region’s famous tropical waters bursting with colourful marine life.

With snorkelling equipment offered free of charge for all guests, you can choose to take a boat trip around the island and discover some of the best snorkelling spots or simply step into the water right in front of your hotel. In the late afternoon watch as life under the water’s surface transforms while the sun sets over the ocean.
