Rarotonga’s Saturday Punanga Nui Market offers a wide range of island gifts and handicrafts, black pearls, pearl shell, jewellery, pareu fabrics, clothing, local music and fresh local produce. It’s a great place to sample homemade delicacies or just to pass the time meeting and chatting with the locals.  

Back to the Edgewater to enjoy a weaving demonstration with the resident weave master "Sunshine" who uses traditionally taught weaving methods whilst adding his own sprinkling of personality to the class.  

This afternoon we'll enjoy a 4WD Raro Mountain Safari Tour.  Discover the heart of Rarotonga and learn about life on the island as we climb 'out of the way' tracks, admire the panoramic views and explore the scenic back country roads with colourful scenic commentary from experienced local guides.
