Area Profile

Leaving the main town of Avarua in the north of Rarotonga and heading west along the Back Road towards the village of Nikao, you will find the area of Puapuautu opposite the airport. This is the gentle-sloped elevated area behind the airport runway which overlooks the airport and sea beyond.

This location offers the convenience of being close to town, without being amidst the local ‘bustle’.

It is very handy to the airport, and the growing number of amenities along the Main Road between Panama and Avatiu.  Along this strip there are 3 cafés, a beach bar, 2 restaurants, a local fish shop to name a few, along with CITC Stores (Food, Liquor, and Building Supplies) closer to town.

Puapuautu Tapere is just 3 minutes’ drive from Manea Food Store and Tereora College & Stadium.
