#7 of 11 in Parks in Rarotonga
A playground for water lovers, Black Rock Beach also represents a historically and culturally important site. Ask the locals about the beach's history and legend, which includes a belief that human spirits depart from this part of the coastline. At one end of the beach you can find large basalt rocks sitting on the edge of the ocean, serving as convenient and all-natural diving platforms. While the beach offers swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking, nearby recreational facilities allow you to play tennis, volleyball, or golf.
