Fresh seafood and local markets

As the island is surrounded by the sea, it's no surprise Rarotonga is renowned for its freshly caught seafood. Local favourites such as iki mata (raw fish) and mahi-mahi, are must tries. Umu kai, a local delicacy cooked in a traditional earth oven, is widely available and also worth sampling.

The Rarotongan gastronomy scene comprises a multitude of dining options, with many restaurants serving gourmet burgers, pizzas, and fish sandwiches. You'll find plenty of beachfront restaurants on Rarotonga, such as Vaima in Vaimaanga, where you can dine while gazing out over the ocean.

Markets are another great way to sample Rarotongan cuisine and offer a change of culinary scenery. The Punanga Nui Market in Avarua and the Muri Night Market, which both feature indigenous foods and fresh fruits and vegetables, offer the opportunity to mingle with locals.
