Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Take home a memorable souvenir from Bergman & Sons, a store dedicated to natural and farmed black pearls. These small ocean jewels come from a lagoon in the north of the country, the native home of black-lipped mother-of-pearl shells. The shop sells everything from rings and necklaces, to pendants and loose pearls. While you shop, keep in mind some important pearl attributes, like shape and surface quality. Unblemished natural pearls remain rare, and marks often add character and distinction to a piece of jewelry.

Where to stay in Rarotonga

Since pristine white beaches and turquoise lagoons are never far away in Rarotonga, where you stay depends entirely on how much you want to spend. The hotels and resorts tend to cluster around the most scenic beaches and lagoons. At the higher end, luxury resorts offer pampering comfort, but often share their beaches with much more affordable accommodations. If you want to explore a certain part of the island, look for lodgings nearby: although the buses are extremely convenient, they tend to meander at a very slow pace.
