Once pristine Muri is now in trouble ( Heartbreaking to see / smell.) - fish have largely moved away and you van smell the septic when it rains. Great place to stay and visit but snorkel up by Fruits where there are still lots of fish in close and the reef is still in decent shape.

We have been to Raro three times, and visited Muri each time - that's how stunning it is there - with the lagoon and three beautiful islands. Previously the water has been pristine and crystal clear, but not this time. The water was cloudy and dirty each day we visited. One day the waters edge was covered in a grotty... More

I think it Muri was pristine at one point. However, when we were there, we noticed so much algae in the water. The lagoon itself has a nice stretch of beach with lots of hotels and activities. It's a good thing we didn't stay here because we would have been bummed.

We stayed at the Muri Beach Club Hotel, which was really nice. Our room overlooked the Muri Lagoon, which was beautiful from our room. We ventured out into the lagoon in a kayak. The lagoon is very shallow & in some areas, we had to dig our way through instead of paddling. There were lots of sea slugs in the... More

I was so excited to see this most amazing lagoon....hum, the water was cloudy with lots of grasses, very touristy, the lagoon cruise boats were loud and obnoxious. Given that just a mile or two away the reef and snorkeling are amazing, not sure what the draw is here.

Could think of any where better to stay while in rarotonga. When the tide is out the water is glass and shallow you can just about walk to the other islands (reef shoes recommended) snorkeling is fun and you see lots of fish
